DCR 3.302 Notice of Case Settings-Court Calendar
The Shawnee County District Court Website (www.shawneecourt.org) shall constitute the official court calendar provided for in K.S.A. 60-216 and K.S.A. 60-240(2) and Supreme Court Rule 104 and 131. The setting of motions, pre-trials or trials and their publication on the Shawnee County District Court Website in domestic and Chapter 61 Civil cases shall constitute written notice to all counsel of such setting, and shall constitute written notice to show cause why the matter should not be dismissed on that date pursuant to K.S.A. 60-241(a)(2), and shall further constitute written notice pursuant to K.S.A. 60-255 and Supreme Court Rule 118 of intention to render default judgment if counsel and/or parties do not appear for scheduled hearing and if the first publication thereof affords the time provided by statute.

Defendants in criminal cases and their lawyers have the duty to watch the official court calendar and know when they are to be present. Defendants in criminal cases must appear and be prepared for hearings or to stand trial on the day that their case is scheduled for trial, as noticed in the official court calendar unless excused by the court. Failure to appear whenever noticed to appear will result in the defendant's bond being forfeited and a warrant being issued for the arrest of defendant.

When such listing appears on the Shawnee County District Court Website and parties or counsel find it impossible to appear, they must within three (3) working days or a reasonable length of time under the circumstances, prior to the scheduled date make satisfactory arrangements with the Court to reschedule.

Notice on the Shawnee County District Court Website does not supersede any written notices of the Court.
