Tentative Rulings

Any party that intends to present oral argument at the hearing is required to notify the court and all opposing parties by 4:30 p.m. on the court day prior to the hearing of the party's intention to appear.

Tentative Rulings for each law & motion matter will be posted on the Internet by 3:00 p.m. on the court day immediately before the hearing.

If you do not have Internet access or if you experience difficulty with the posted tentative rulings, you may obtain the tentative ruling by calling 760.904.5722.

If no request for oral argument is made by 4:30 p.m., the tentative ruling will become the final ruling on the matter effective the date of the hearing. Unless otherwise noted, the prevailing party is to give notice of the ruling.
