Orange County Superior Court - Rules and Forms - Invitation to Comment - Summer 2024 - Out of Cycle

The Rules and Forms Committee of the Superior Court of California, County of Orange, has proposed revisions to the Local Rules of Court. Pursuant to California Rules of Court, rule 10.613, the Court invites you to comment on the following proposed new and revised changes to local rules:

Revised Local Rule 704Ex Parte Matters. Revisions to Local Rule 704 were made to require parties to submit domestic violence ex parte applications by 1:30 p.m., to ensure same day review, because the current 3:00 p.m. deadline is too late in the day to permit effective review given the high volume of afternoon filings.

The proposed revisions and invitation to comment are posted on the Superior Court’s website at Invitation to Comment.

You can submit comments via an online form or download and submit the form by regular mail.

All comments must be submitted no later than 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 1, 2024. Comments being submitted by U.S. mail should be directed to:

Honorable Craig Arthur
Chair, Rules and Forms Committee Superior Court, County of Orange
P. O. Box 6000
341 The City Drive
Orange, CA 92863-6000
