I was in court, in the Los Angeles County Superior Court – Central District, last week a few times and noticed a common theme in nearly all the cases. The judges simply are not getting the parties’ filings in time for the hearing. Several judges mentioned this is a new problem that they are facing because of the new court closure dates. this is very frustrating. The only solution is to file conformed courtesy copies in the individual hearings at the same time that you file papers at the main filing windows. Hopefully, if attorneys, like myself, take this extra step – the court will have all the necessary documents in font of it so that it can make informed decisions.
