SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES - UPDATE

Apr 03 2020

 

SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA

COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES

 

 

PRESIDING JUDGE KEVIN C. BRAZILE:

TIME DEADLINES FOR ARRAIGNMENTS, PRELIMINARY

HEARINGS AND TRIALS EXTENDED

 

Presiding Judge Issues Implementation Order of Chief Justice’s

March 30, 2020 Emergency Order

 

Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile announced today the implementation of the Emergency Order issued by Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye on March 30, 2020, that was in response to Governor Gavin Newsom’s executive order issued on Friday, March 27, 2020, and the unanimous action taken by the Judicial Council of California (JCC) on Saturday, March 28, 2020.

 

Presiding Judge Brazile said: “The continuous operation of our courts is essential for our constitutional form of government, for providing due

process and protecting the public. Therefore, the courts must remain open.”

 

On March 28, 2020, the Judicial Council met in emergency session to

consider the Chief Justice’s order requiring superior courts to suspend jury trials for 60 days, among other actions. The Judicial Council unanimously authorized and supported the Chief Justice issuing statewide emergency orders to extend statutory guidelines for preliminary hearings, arraignments, and last day trials, in both Criminal and Civil proceedings.

 

The Court will also implement, where possible, technology for telephonic and video arraignments in Misdemeanor and Felony courtrooms. Also, by next week, every Dependency courtroom should be using video WebEx for hearings.
