Then that is what has to be done. One may wish to:
1) File a proposed ORDER with the court that reflects the Judge's oral decision with a blank for the Judge to sign and send a copy to the opposing party;
ask the Clerk to present this to the Judge;
3) The clerk should, and once the Judge signs it, then the clerk should initiate the transfer.Your response is the first time I've heard that I have to do a "proposed order". Please advise the appropriate document to do that: Motion Brief; letter; ?? Thank you.
No brief, no letter. Just a proposed order. This is not unusual. Rules for proposed orders are normally in court local rules, such as here
, and here
(just search "proposed order" on the page).
As you can see, this is an established practice.
A proposed order is simply a blank order reflecting the decision of the judge and having a space for signature and date. A good template for one is here
Note that this is from a U.S. District Court
in Illinois. But that is not the point. I chose it for the structure - heading, order name, brief introduction, orders, date, signature space.
This should be something akin to what is turned into one's court, of course with proper alterations.
And of course I cannot know for 100% fact that this is what is holding the matter up, although I am fairly certain.
