    It has come to the attention of Whatcom County Judicial Officers, that the current motions rule, was a barrier to access to justice for those defendant’s being held in custody.  As a result, WCDDCCrR 4 and 6 have been amended by adding section (4)(i) and (6)(c). 

     

    4(i) Motions For Bail Review.  Motions for Bail Review are controlled by WCDCCrR 6-Warrant Quash and Special Set Arraignments. [New section 6(c)]**

    [Formerly WDCrRLJ 2, adopted effective September 1, 2003; Amended effective September 1, 2008; Renumbered WDCrR 3, amended effective September 1, 2019, amended and adopted June 30, 2023, effective September 1, 2023.]**[WCDCCrR (4)(i) Amended and Effective November 15, 2023 Pursuant to WCDCLCR 1-Scope of Rules subsection 1(a) Authorization and Adoption - Any of these rules may be suspended or modified, upon good cause shown, and by written stipulation of the parties approved by the Court, or by the Court upon its own motion. It has come to the attention of the Presiding Judge, Judge, and Commissioner, that this amendment is required to ensure timely access to justice.]**

     

    6(c) Bail Review.  Motions for Bail Review shall be noted no later than 1200 noon the day prior to the hearing.  Bail Reviews shall be heard Tuesday through Friday at 130 PM in custody, or Thursday 130 PM before the assigned judicial officer.  The “Note for Calendar / Docket” filed by the moving party shall be accompanied by a written motion and declaration in support per CrRLJ 8.2. The failure to note the matter timely and with the motion and declaration in support filed simultaneously will result in the matter not being set for hearing.**

    [Adopted June 30, 2023, effective September 1, 2023] **[WCDCCrR 6(c) amended in conjunction with WCDCCrR (4)(i) Amended and Effective November 15, 2023 Pursuant to WCDCLCR 1-Scope of Rules subsection 1(a) Authorization and Adoption - Any of these rules may be suspended or modified, upon good cause shown, and by written stipulation of the parties approved by the Court, or by the Court upon its own motion. It has come to the attention of the Presiding Judge, Judge, and Commissioner, that this amendment is required to ensure timely access to justice.]**
