Sec. 5. (a) This section does not apply to criminal cases.

(b) Notwithstanding IC 33-29-1-9, after any action or proceeding is docketed in a Shelby superior court or the Shelby circuit court on change of venue, all parties who have appeared in the case in person or by counsel may agree on and request a transfer from a superior court to the circuit court or from the circuit court to a superior court.

(c) Upon the agreement of all parties, the court in which the action is pending shall order the case transferred to the other court.  The clerk shall transmit the original papers of the case to the other court and docket the case in the other court without any transcript being required.

(d) All further proceedings in the case shall take place in the court to which the case is transferred.  If the case is one in which the prosecuting attorney is required to appear and defend and a party fails to appear or to employ counsel, the prosecuting attorney has the right to agree to the transfer instead of the nonappearing party or counsel.
