Administrative Order No. 26 Advertising Prior to Termination of Cases

It appears that the number of cases required to be advertised prior to termination pursuant to Bucks County Rule of Civil Procedure *900 exceeds 5,000 for the period from January 1, 1975 through December 31, 1984; and,

It further appearing that to advertise these cases would place an excessive burden on the resources of the Office of the prothonotary,

It is hereby ordered that the advertising requirement is waived for those cases, provided, however, that the prothonotary shall maintain a list of such cases for public inspection for one year commencing January 1, 1987. The lists shall be in alphabetical order by year, under the name of the plaintiff, and shall contain the full caption and the nature and date of the last docket entry. The prothonotary, upon receipt of a written request from any party or attorney shall mark the docket to indicate that the case has been certified as being an active case without requiring the payment of any fee. All cases not so certified shall be terminated effective January 1, 1988.

This order shall be effective January 1, 1987 and shall be published in the Bucks County Law Reporter for four consecutive weeks beginning December 4, 1986 and in the Pennsylvania Bulletin as required by law.

All cases marked for termination after January 1, 1985 shall be advertised on a monthly basis in accordance with Bucks County Rule of Civil Procedure *900.
