Non-Dispositive Motions

Parties must comply with all the requirements of KCLR 7 when setting motions without oral argument. Please provide a copy of all proposed orders in Word format to the Court by emailing them to the bailiff.

Copies of signed orders will be delivered to counsel or the parties electronically if email addresses have been provided to the Court. If no email address is available for an attorney or a party, please provide preaddressed, stamped envelopes to the Court for its use in sending the order by mail.

Civil Trial Continuances

The Court grants motions to continue trial, other than the 28-day adjustment authorized by LCR 40(e)(1), only on the basis of good cause. The motion should be accompanied by a declaration as to the nature of the case, the discovery and trial preparation that have been completed, what remains to be accomplished, and an explanation of why the case could not be completed within the original case schedule. The assertion that more time is needed for discovery or negotiation, without more, is insufficient. After the Final Date to Change Trial, a motion to continue trial will be granted only under extraordinary circumstances, as provided by LCR 40(e)(2).

Electronic Working Copies

The Court prefers to receive electronic working copies submitted to the Clerk using the Clerk’s eFiling Application pursuant to LGR 30(b)(4)(A)(iii). If a party’s submission exceeds the 500 page limit, it may request prior permission from the Court’s bailiff to deliver the working copies in PDF format, either on disk or thumb drive (and delivered to the Judge’s Mailroom). Prior permission should be requested by sending an email to mckee.court@kingcounty.gov. Please do not email any working copies directly to the Court or to her law clerk/bailiff without prior permission.

Working copies should have the judge’s name and the date and time of the hearing in the upper right hand corner of the first page of the motion. Please provide only copies of the cases that you are substantially relying on.
