Probate Calendar Schedule

Law and Motion Information: The probate department assigns law and motion hearing dates based chiefly on capacity and does not have the ability to consider the procedural rules applicable in each and every case. It is the responsibility of the parties to make sure all procedural requirements are met. In particular, if a party knows that an assigned hearing date for a motion for summary judgment or discovery motion falls outside of applicable cutoff dates as set forth in the Code of Civil Procedure, the party should file an ex parte motion seeking to either advance the hearing date or alternatively allow the matter to be heard after the usual deadline.
