Ex Parte Communications
No attorney, party, or third-party shall attempt to unilaterally communicate or correspond, either orally or in writing, the merits of any litigation with any jurist presiding over the matter. Such communications will not be read or acted upon. Pursuant to the Model Code of Judicial Conduct, judges and magistrates are prohibited from reading or considering ex parte communications from only one party to a cause of action. Communications or correspondence may be considered only when they clearly reflect that a copy was provided to all other parties in the case. See Local Juvenile Court Rule 22 for more information.
