In an effort to reduce the number of in-person appearances in Personal Injury courtrooms in the Spring Street Courthouse, the Court is encouraging remote appearances in Final Status Conferences (FSC) so long as the parties/attorneys submit a joint electronic trial binder in advance of the FSC.
At least two court days before the scheduled FSC, parties/counsel must submit via email a joint electronic trial binder to the courtroom in which the FSC will be conducted.
The trial documents must be in PDF text searchable format and bookmarked and emailed to the applicable email address listed below:
- Department 27 at sscdept27FSC@LACourt.org
- Department 28 at sscdept28FSC@LACourt.org
- Department 29 at sscdept29FSC@LACourt.org
- Department 31 at sscdept31FSC@LACourt.org
- Department 32 at sscdept32FSC@LACourt.org
Notwithstanding submission of an electronic version of the trial binder to the judge conducting the FSC, the parties/counsel must present the trial binder with hard copies of the requisite documents to the trial judge.
