When filing a new MDL case:
- MDL cases may be filed using ICCES or in paper format at the Clerk’s office of the Colorado Supreme Court.
- An additional 7 copies of the motion for consolidation are no longer necessary.
- Proposed Orders should not be submitted.
- Motion captions must include the case caption for each case being requested for consolidation [see sample below]
- When a show cause order is issued, an MDL hearing date may be ordered (see the scheduled hearing dates below). Typically a motion for consolidation must be filed a minimum of 35 days prior to be set for the next available hearing date.
SERVICE: If your certificate of service indicates that you served the parties via ICCES, you MUST serve them through the case you are filing into – and NOT the trial court case. You are not required to serve via ICCES; however, if you indicate that you served that way, you must serve them through the MDL case. Otherwise, this is cause for rejection of your filing. Additionally, the parties you are serving should be named specifically on your certificate of service. Service of “all parties” is not accepted.
The following dates have been set for MDL hearings:
