Washington civil rule 79 provides that the court clerk’s office is to maintain a permanent and public record that lists cases that are ‘pending’ before the court – meaning they have not been decided. The list is to clearly show what additional action is to be taken by any party or counsel to the case.
For example, when a Complaint in a Dog Bite Injury case is filed with the court with service having been made on the Defendant, the list may show that the next action to be taken is for an Answer to be filed by the Defendant.
Additionally, the clerk is to provide the list to the judge on the first Monday of every month and if there is a visiting judge they are to provide the list by mail to the visiting judge.
