Unlimited Civil Courtroom Schedule & Requirements

Pursuant to the provisions of Government Code section 68115, at the Court's request California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye has issued an emergency order permitting the closing of the Court's facilities to the public, with minimal exceptions from March 17, 2020 through March 27, 2020. In addition, the Chief Justice issued an advisory of March 20, 2020 calling for the suspension of all civil trials, hearings, and proceedings for at least 60 days, with the exception of time-sesitive matters.

Therefore, all hearing dates on any civil case set during the next 60 days (including court and jury trials in progress or calendared to begin during this timeframe) are deemed vacated and will be reset for a date beyond 60 dats. Notice will be provided to all parties. Although hearings may continue to display as calendared in electronic online case access, no hearings will be conducted during the close period.
