Quick CA Trial Question

Recommended Posts

Is a trial brief required by the court before trial? Can we get sanctioned for not turning one in?

I don't believe it is required although it is highly recommended and will be your 'road map' for navigating trial.

Yes I got sick over this weekend and am afraid I won't be able to turn one in on time. The trial is scheduled for a few days! But I guess even if I prepare something and turn it in late it may be better than not doing anything at all.

Thanks very much. This has kicked my tail!

that stinks! You should probably check your local rules just to be sure though. I've been perusing the site for info about it and apparently there is a post by Seadragon with some trial briefs. Hopefully the more experienced will chime in too!

In the interest of time why don't you just call the courthouse and ask the clerk?

:goodluck:

I did not admit a trial brief into the record for my trial last week, but I did have one for myself to keep on point. Hopefully these crumbs will come to their senses and dismiss prior to trial !!!!!

It is not required here in FL...

I am lucky for living in a podunk town. I called to ask about filing a trial brief and the clerk said nobody had ever asked her that! She had to ask the other clerks and the rule is that if it's a jury trial you must file one, but you are not obligated to file a trial brief for a court trial. I lucked out on that one because it seems like every time I have stuff to do I get sick and I got sick this weekend when I was supposed to be working on the brief! Thanks for all of your support everyone. I will be sure to let you know how this turns out in a few days for trial:)
