Neither counsel nor unrepresented parties shall communicate with Judge Bowman's Chambers unless they have first communicated with opposing counsel/unrepresented party/parties and advised of their intention to contact the Court. All written communication with Chambers must be contemporaneously provided to opposing counsel or the other party, if unrepresented.
Communications with the Court concerning pending matters should either be by formal pleadings/motions/petitions, or, if all parties and counsel agree, the Court will accept correspondence or a phone conference. The Judge's staff screens correspondence, calls and voicemails and does not provide any ex parte communications to Judge Bowman. All correspondence to the Court should confirm that it complies with these procedures, and that the communication is being done with the knowledge of the other attorney(s) and/or party (parties).
