(C)       Notification to Clerk of Matters Under Advisement.  If any order on any contested matter or ruling after trial has been under advisement for more than 90 days, upon written notification and request sent to the Clerk of Court by any party in interest, the clerk or the clerk’s designees shall send to the court and to all parties a “Notification of Matter Under Advisement for 90 Days”.  The clerk shall not file the request in the court file nor indicate the identity of the party making the request.  When the court receives such notification, it shall set the matter for hearing within 30 days of receipt of the notification or shall issue an order resolving the matter during that same 30 day period.
