Does anyone Know how the "Days" are counted in Orange County California? Calandeer days or Court/work days?

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble find how days are counted.  I just submitted my DIS-015 and am hoping it wasn't to early.  

I'm in Orange County California and used the LA county court calculater.  Not sure if Orange County goes by same one.

does anyone Know?

I mailed my DIS-015 on feb. 8th, court date is early April 

 

Thanks

I have good news and bad news for you. Bad news is you served/mailed your CCP 96 request (DISC-015) too soon. Per code, it should be served "no more than 45 days or less than 30 days prior to the date first set for trial". That is in calendar days, not court days - based on your post you served it on Feb 8th which is 63 calendar days before trial, well outside of the '45 to 30 days before trial' window. The plaintiff is under no obligation to respond to your request. My guess is they will not respond at all or they will wait until after the correct window has expired to inform you that it was improper.

The good news is that this is correctable...you are currently within the window to make a proper request; you can send it again and I suggest you serve a new DISC-015 immediately. You are 41 calendar days before trial. Make sure to include a proof of service with your request (POS-030), make copies of both, and send it via Certified Mail so that you can prove delivery.

OMG- thank you so much!  They did respond.  I've been having such a problem understanding the days- I was sent a link but it confused me more.  So I need to resend it to make it count?
