Effective March 15, 2021: Unlawful Detainer Court Trials in front of the Commissioner - Required Pre-Hearing Exhibit Exchange Protocol

All parties for an Unlawful Detainer Court Trial in front of the Commissioner must adhere to the protocol for the exchange of your proposed exhibits. If you do not stipulate to the Commissioner, you will need to contact the assigned Judge's Courtroom Clerk for instructions on the hearing protocols, including evidence exchange.


Unlawful Detainer Settlements

Parties must comply with California Rule of Court 3.1385. That Rule provides: "If an entire case is settled or otherwise disposed of, each plaintiff or other party seeking affirmative relief must immediately file written notice of the settlement or other disposition with the court and serve the notice on all parties and any arbitrator or other court-connected alternative dispute resolution (ADR) neutral involved in the case. Each plaintiff or other party seeking affirmative relief must also immediately give oral notice to all of the above if a hearing, conference, or trial is scheduled to take place within 10 days." The Judicial Council has promulgated a form adopted for mandatory use for this purpose, the CM-200 NOTICE OF SETTLEMENT OF ENTIRE CASE.

If your settlement resolves the entire case, the Court will not sign a stipulation for entry of judgment or stipulated judgment until the Plaintiff has filed a CM-200 NOTICE OF SETTLEMENT OF ENTIRE CASE.
