If the office of a presiding judge or magistrate judge in any action is outside the county in which an action is pending, each party to such action shall, when reasonably possible, lodge with the presiding judge, at least five (5) days prior to the trial or hearing, at his or her office, respective briefs and copies of motions, notices, orders to show cause, proposed instructions, or any other pleadings or documents which are reasonably necessary to advise the court of the nature of any proceeding or hearing to be held in the action.
