Motion Docket

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Virginia Beach Circuit Court has two dockets for hearing motions:  (1) the Friday Motion Docket and (2) the Duty Judge Docket.  See Motion Docket Procedures Manual​ for procedures for setting matters on the Friday Motion and Duty Judge Dockets. 

As set forth in the manual:

Motions on the Duty Judge Motion Docket shall be set  electronically by going to the “Motion Docket Calendar". This online motion docket calendar will show all the appointments that are currently scheduled.  You will use this calendar to determine and coordinate available dates and times with the parties prior to scheduling. After determining available date and time, complete the Duty Judge Hearing Request Form​ and submit via email to (Dutyjudg@vbgov.com). 


The Duty Judge Hearing Request Form will be reviewed upon receipt. If in compliance with the Court’s procedures, you will receive an email confirmation (a “Duty Judge Hearing Request Response”) and the judicial assistant will print a copy of the Duty Judge Hearing Request Form for the case file. If there are any problems or issues with your request, you will be notified accordingly.
