The following tentative ruling procedure is in effect beginning May 4, 2020 until further notice from the Court.

Tentative rulings for Law and Motion will be posted electronically by 1:30 p.m. the day before the hearing.  Any party wishing to contest or argue the tentative ruling must email the court at civilcourtclerks@sjcourts.org that they intend to appear remotely no later than 4:00 PM on the day before the scheduled hearing.  The Department and Case Number must be in the header of the email.  The email must include the Department, Case number, Case Name, Motion, party’s name and email, date and time of the hearing, issues they plan to argue, and that they have informed the opposing party.  The party must also notify affected counsel, or unrepresented parties, that they intend to appear, no later than 4:00 PM on the day before the scheduled hearing.  Unless the Court and opposing counsel have been notified, the tentative ruling shall become the ruling of the Court without oral argument.
