Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 2.5. Stipulations Not Binding on Court – Continuance of Trial or Hearing.

The parties to any action may present to the court a stipulation as to any procedural matter involved in any proceeding, including a stipulation to vacate or continue a hearing or trial, but the stipulation is to be considered as a joint motion by the parties to the court for its consideration, and is not binding on the court. The court may approve or disapprove the stipulation in the same manner as the court rules on a motion. The court may by oral or written notice to the parties limit the time within which a motion or stipulation to vacate or continue a hearing or trial must be made in order to be considered by the court.
