Scheduling and Adjourning Hearings and Settlements (White Plains)

It is strongly recommended that phone calls to Judge Drain's chambers or courtroom deputy regarding scheduling matters and adjournments be made between 12:00 noon and 4:00 p.m. It will take longer for a response to such calls made at other times. In addition, adjournments normally are not granted if requested after 12:00 noon the day before the hearing, and parties should inform chambers as promptly as practicable after they have agreed to settle a matter.
