A tentative ruling is the proposed ruling of the court. Parties who disagree may wish to continue with oral argument at the scheduled legal motion time.
Any party who wishes to orally argue the motion may appear by telephone by calling Court Call at (888) 882-6878, or in person on the date and time set for the hearing, pursuant to California Rules of Court, Rule 3.670. Failure to appear shall be deemed a waiver of oral argument. If neither party appears at the scheduled hearing, the tentative ruling shall become the final order of the court on the date set for the hearing.
Tentative rulings are available online by 4:00 p.m. before the scheduled motion day.
