    The Pima County Superior Court Opposes the Petition. In short, the proposed rule change
    - Increases costs and fees to Litigants;
    - Will be expensive for this Court to implement and carry out;
    - Diverts valuable judicial resources to unnecessary, and trivial tasks in many instances;
    - The current rule is inexpensive,efficient and functions well in Pima County;
    - The current rule allows for Comprehensive Scheduling Orders in any case without requiring it in all cases.

    The attached Comment goes into greater detail.

    I am writing to oppose the current Petition to Amend a variety of Civil Rules having to do with the setting of trials. I have two primary objections to the proposed rule changes:

    1. Pima County’s culture and practice, under the current rules, works well. There is no need for rule changes.
    2. The State Bar’s belief that participation in a settlement conference should be required before a court sets a trial date is an unfounded and erroneous belief.

    Please see the full argument in the attachment documents.

    I write to supplement my original comments and to address the Response of the State Bar to those comments. The State Bar has adjusted the language and amended its Petition. The Petition and Amended Petition are not well founded. The Bar has also suggested a Committee. This is because there is (apparently) a clear division among the State Bar’s own members as to the merits of the Petition. I write to put on record my position, and to object to the need and formation of a Committee.

    The Pima County Superior Court has reviewed the Amended Petition and Response to Comments on the Petition to Amend Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure, regarding trial setting, and remains opposed to the amended proposed rule change. The few and minor amendments to the proposed rule change do not address the core objections the Pima County Superior Court has with respect to the proposed rule change.
