MANDATORY CIVIL EFILING TO BEGIN ON 6.1.20
Emergency Local Rule 2-100. Emergency Local Rules Adopted During Covid-19 Pandemic.
In a Statewide Order dated March 23, 2020, Hon. Tani Cantil-Sakauye, Chief Justice of California and Chair of the Judicial Council, authorized all Superior Courts “to adopt any proposed rules or rule amendment that is intended to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic to take effect immediately, without advance circulation for 45 days of public comment.”
Pursuant to that authority, the Court has adopted a number of Emergency Local Rules, all of which are specifically enumerated on the Court’s website at http://www.sanmateocourt.org. To the extent that any of the Emergency Local Rules conflict or are inconsistent with any other of the Court’s non-emergency Local Rules, the Emergency Local Rules shall control. Emergency Rule 2-100 adopted effective May 11, 2020.
