  • Witness Examination: Please complete and inform the Court of your length of trial projection/promise by completing the Estimate of Witness Examinations Form.  Also, counsel/parties should be prepared to provide the courtroom clerk with each witness's full name and address just prior to when the witness testifies during trial.
  • Jury Instructions:  Plaintiff will submit a full set of proposed instructions.  Defendant will submit a set that supplements or alters the plaintiff’s instructions.  The balance of the instructions will be considered as ‘agreed’ instructions.  Please use the most recent versions of the Washington Pattern Jury Instructions.
  • Exhibits: Counsel/parties are to deliver trial exhibits to the Judge’s Mailroom one week prior to the trial date and pursuant to the pre-trial order and established procedures. Exhibit List Template.
  • Depositions:  Depositions will be kept by counsel until they are filed during trial.  When they are filed the clerk will open and file stamp them.  Filed depositions will remain in the clerk's custody until trial is completed.
  • Additional Equipment:  The court has a limited amount of equipment (TV/DVD/VCR, Elmo) available for criminal trials.  Please arrange for an outside vendor to provide any of your equipment needs and arrange with the judicial clerk bailiff when to setup the equipment in the courtroom.  Although Department 1's judicial clerk and courtroom clerk are exceedingly accommodating, do not rely on, or direct, either to work your trial equipment or the courtroom lights.
