System Maintenance:

The Court's technology systems will be undergoing maintenance the evening of Thursday, October 20th from 5pm - 10pm PST. Please expect all systems to be unavailable during this time. 

Tentative Rulings

The Tentative Rulings are available online by clicking the link below, or by telephone at (209) 533-6633 after 3:00 p.m. the court day before the hearing.

Please note that Tentative Rulings are available for Department 2, and occasionally may be available for other Departments. Tentative Rulings are only available for certain civil law and motion matters in unlimited civil cases. This does not include civil harassment petitions, any family law matters, or case management conferences.

If you wish to appear for oral argument, pursuant to California Rules of Court, rule 3.1308, you must so notify the court and opposing counsel by 4:00 p.m., the court day before the hearing. The court telephone number for such notification to Dept. 1 is (209) 588-2316, and to Dept. 2 is (209) 588-2382.

The Tentative Ruling will become the ruling of the court if the court has not directed oral argument by its Tentative Ruling, and notice of intent to appear has not been given.
