AMENDING RULE 7 OF THE RULES OF CIVIL PROCEDURE TO PROVIDE THAT, WITH THE PERMISSION OF THE SENIOR RESIDENT SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE, A MOTION IN A CIVIL ACTION IN A COUNTY THAT IS PART OF A MULTICOUNTY JUDICIAL DISTRICT MAY BE HEARD DURING CIVIL SESSION IN AN INCLUDED COUNTY DIFFERENT FROM WHERE THE CASE WAS FILED.
Amends GS 1A-1, Rule 7(b)(4), by deleting most of the provision and instead stating that a motion in a civil action in a county that is part of a multicounty judicial district may be heard in another county that is part of the same judicial district with permission of the district’s senior resident superior court judge or designee. Requires a motion heard outside the county in which the case is filed to be heard at a civil session of court, except during emergencies determined by the senior resident superior court judge or designee. Applies to motions made on or after October 1, 2011.
