DEPARTMENT C33 LAW AND MOTION

 Judge James L. Crandall

 

These are the Courtís tentative rulings.  They may become orders if the parties do not appear at the hearing.  The Court also might make a different order at the hearing.† (Lewis v. Fletcher Jones Motor Cars, Inc. (2012) 205 Cal.App.4th 436, 442, fn. 1.) 

 

If counsel wish to submit on the tentative ruling, please call the Court Clerk (657-622-5233) to notify the Court that all parties are submitting on the tentative and no appearance will be necessary. The tentative will then become the final ruling. If no one appears at the hearing the tentative will be the final ruling. Either side may appear and argue the Courtís tentative ruling.

 

PREVAILING PARTY SHALL GIVE NOTICE OF THE FINAL RULING TO EACH PARTY and PREPARE AN ORDER/JUDGMENT FOR THE COURTíS SIGNATURE IF THE MOTION IS DISPOSITIVE OF A PARTY OR THE CASE.

APPEARANCES:  Department C33 is currently participating in the Online Check-in/Zoom Pilot Program pursuant to Administrative Order No. 21/07 for non-evidentiary hearings, including law and motion.  All counsel and self-represented parties appearing for such hearings must check-in online through the Court's civil video appearance website at https://www.occourts.org/media-relations/civil.html prior to the commencement of their hearing.  No in-person appearances will be permitted without a further order of the court upon a showing of good cause.  Once the online check-in is completed, counsel and self-represented parties will be prompted to join the courtroomís Zoom hearing session. Participants will initially be directed to a virtual waiting room while the clerk provides access to the video hearing. Check-in instructions and instructional video are available on the courtís website.

 

PUBLIC ACCESS:  In those instances where proceedings will be conducted only by remote video and/or audio, access will be provided to interested parties by contacting the courtroom clerk, preferably 24 hours in advance. No filming, broadcasting, photography, or electronic recording is permitted of the video session pursuant to California Rules of Court, rule 1.150 and Orange County Superior Court rule 180.
