In Los Angeles County, most courts are closed due to the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus. On March 16, 2020, the Chief Justice of California and Chair of the Judicial Council issued an order closing most day-to-day court business in Los Angeles County and gave the local presiding judges leeway in holding certain emergency and essential issues.
This is an extraordinary time for all aspects of life, and California law allows the Supreme Court to issue orders in times of emergency for the safety of the public and the interests of justice.
What if You Have an Existing Case?
If you already have a case in court, it’s possible that any hearing dates are going to be postponed as well as the filing of documents and any pretrial activities. The best thing to do is to contact your attorney to find out what to do regarding your case.
Whit if You Have Filing Deadline Coming Up?
If you have a filing deadline and have already hired an attorney, then you should contact your attorney to learn the status of your filing. According to the order issued by the California Supreme Court, certain filing deadlines are extended by the order by considering certain dates as “holidays” for the purposes of filing.
This would in effect push andy deadlines that expired on an affected date until a later time issued in the order.
If you have already hired an attorney, and you aren’t sure about whether your filing deadline is coming up or how it might be affected, you should contact an attorney as quickly as possible. Missing a filing deadline can cause the person to lose their right to get relief from the court.
