Entry of Judgments

Rule 5.04 of the Uniform Chancery Court Rules in Mississippi provides as follows:

         "In all litigated actions, the attorney who shall be directed to draw the Judgment
         shall submit the same to opposing counsel for criticism as to form only, and shall present
         the same to the Chancellor within ten (10) calendar days after being directed to draw the
         judgment unless otherwise permitted."

Lots of times the opposing party waits forever on sending the order back.  I think it is a good idea to file a certificate in the court file saying you have complied with the Rule and that the order as written will be entered in ten days if there is no response.  That is of course assuming the order is drafted up pretty quick.
