The Honorable Emily Peacock


Because of the restrictions occasioned by COVID-19, and consistent with the 13th Circuit guidelines as posted on, and numerous administrative Orders of the Florida Supreme Court, most recently AOSC20-23, issued April 6, 2020, there will be no in person hearings in Circuit Civil Division D until further notice. It is appropriate that all hearings take place by Zoom Conference or Zoom dial in. The Court’s preference is the use of ZOOM teleconferencing.

                The Court’s Zoom link is and Zoom Meeting ID is 305-806-8636.  No additional password is required for attendance; you will be placed in the “waiting room” and either Judge Peacock or Joanna Carter will “join” you into the meeting when the hearing commences.  The Zoom App is available for free for IOS and Android devices, and it may also be accessed via desktop computer.  This is a free service.  The Zoom Help Center is at


                You do not need to be together to use Zoom and all parties and counsel should plan to appear separately.  Please input your actual name for the video conference or change the name of your device.  Please input the case number of the case for which you are appearing along with your name so the Court is able to identify participants in each scheduled case.  Testimonial evidence may be introduced by videoconference.  Please make sure any testifying witness has a photo ID available to present over the videoconference.  


               Counsel may agree to submit motions and briefs by email and to JAWS for the Court’s review and ruling in lieu of a hearing.  If you choose to do so, please contact Judge Peacock’s assistant, Joanna Carter, at  Joanna.carter@fljud13.orgso that we know to expect written submissions rather than a telephonic hearing.  Please observe these page limitations for briefing of written submissions:  for a 15 minute hearing, not to exceed 5 pages; for a 30 minute hearing, not to exceed 10 pages; for an hour hearing, not to exceed 15 pages.  For any hearings longer than 60 minutes or for evidentiary hearings, please contact Joanna Carter, as above.  Please do not submit briefing notebooks; submit your motions and memoranda by email.  Due to present work-place constraints, mailed and delivered submissions will not be reviewed.


                 Judge Peacock will be happy to conduct telephonic hearings, and you may access your already scheduled hearing by calling the Zoom line as indicated on Judge Peacock’s web page; the Number is 1-786-635-1003; the access Code is: 305-806-8636. 


                 If you do not wish to utilize either of these alternatives, you may continue the hearing to a time when the Court resumes in-person hearings.  Although the certain date for this is unknown, you may schedule after June 1, 2020.


               We apologize for these inconveniences.  Our primary concern is to maintain safe social distancing and do all we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
