Working 4.0 – San Diego Courts Update

James D. Crosby, Attorney at Law - Complex and General Business Litigation and Trial Representation - San Diego, California

The Superior Court has fully closed now for all but emergency matters through April 3. All civil proceedings are continued and all court filings are suspended. For filing deadline purposes, all days during this suspension are considered holidays meaning, in effect, that all filing deadlines are continued for the duration of the court suspension and will reset where they were when the suspension is lifted. So, rights in ongoing cases will not be prejudiced by the court suspension.

The U.S. District Court in San Diego remains open but under very severe restrictions. All jury trials are continued to April 16 and no new trials are being set. Individual district judges retain discretion to hold hearings and conduct proceedings, by telephone or video conference where practicable, as necessary to preserve the rights of the parties. U.S. District Court electronic civil filings are still ongoing.

Accordingly, we will be making no new filings in Superior Court but will continue to meet all filing deadlines in all matters in U.S. District Court. Otherwise, cases and matters remain on file and active.

Regardless of these changes and any more to come, our practice is open and running, and will remain so in this unsettled time. Our opponents are surely working. So are we. We are here, we are available, we continue to fully represent our clients and protect their rights in all ongoing matters, and we are taking on new matters. If you have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to call/email/text.

Be safe and stay healthy.

San Diego Court Update:

The Superior Court in San Diego has now closed except for emergency matters through April 3. All civil proceedings are continued. But, electronic civil filings are ongoing. We understand they will be held in queue and processed by the Court when operations resume.

The U.S. District Court remains open but under very severe restrictions. All jury trials are continued to April 16. No new trials are being set. Individual district judges retain discretion to conduct proceedings, by telephone or video conference where practicable, as necessary to preserve the rights of the parties. U.S. District Court electronic filings are ongoing.

Accordingly, we will continue to meet all filing deadlines in all matters in both the Superior Court and U.S. District Court. Our opponents are working, so are we. The battles continue, just from a distance for awhile.

Regardless of these changes and any more to come, our practice is open and running, and will remain so in this turbulent, unsettled time. We are here, we are available, we are working, we continue to fully represent our clients and their interests, and we are taking on new matters. If you have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to call/email/text.

Be safe and stay healthy.

Working 2.0

The Superior Court in San Diego has now closed for all but emergency matters through April 3. All civil proceedings are continued. As of now, the U.S. District Court here in San Diego is still operating with visitor limitations. But, I suspect that will change in short order. We will continue to monitor for changes in court directives. Otherwise, our cases remain on file and active. Our opponents are working, and the battles continue, just from a distance for awhile.

Regardless of these changes and any more to come, our practice is open and running. My paralegal, Veronica, is working remotely but is fully set-up to continue her important work on behalf of our clients and to meet their continuing needs. I will be working at the office primarily but remotely at times. We are fully equipped for remote work as necessary and will be fully available as usual.

We have invested in the infrastructure to effectively work with our clients from afar and have been doing so efficiently for quite some time. We will continue to do so in this turbulent, unsettled time. We are here, we are available, we are working, our cases proceed, and we are taking on new matters. If you have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to call/email/text.

Be safe and stay healthy.

Working.

The state court in San Diego has postponed jury trials through March. The federal court is operating normally, but some postponement of federal jury trials is presumably inevitable. Otherwise, the courts are open, and cases are proceeding. Likewise, my office is open. We are being careful, taking precautions, washing hands, wiping surfaces, shaking elbows, and working hard to maintain a safe work environment. And, as has been the case for many years now, we can and do largely work with our clients from afar and make all our court filings electronically. So, we are here, we continue to represent our clients, our cases are proceeding full speed, and we are taking on new matters. Be safe. Stay healthy.
