If a judge is available in the Drummond courthouse, every application stamped by the office of the clerk may be presented to the judge in chambers or in the courtroom, as the case may be.
If no judge is available in the Drummond courthouse, a judge acting in chambers is available at the Montréal courthouse every business day, in courtroom 2.07.
To be heard in that courtroom, attorneys must enter their name in a register kept by the usher at the entrance to the courtroom and present the original of the proceeding, stamped by the office of the clerk, for presentation to the judge.
In cases of urgency, a duty judge is available at all times outside normal court business hours.
The duty judge can be reached by contacting the courthouse security service (514-393-2819) which will, in turn, contact the duty judge who will then communicate directly with the person making the request.
