||Case Management Statement||In some litigation cases, you will be ordered to file and serve this form no later than 15 calendar days before the date set for the case management conference. In this form, you inform the court regarding service(s) of complaint/cross-complaint, entry of defaults, parties to be added, statement of the case, jury or nonjury trial, trial date or unavailability dates, estimated length of trial, alternate dispute matters, insurance matters, jurisdiction matters, related cases matters, bifurcation matters, motions expected, discovery schedule, economic litigation issue, other issues, and whether you met and confered with the opposing party (attorney) as required by Cal. Rule of Court 3.724.
||Civil Case Cover Sheet - (All types of cases)
||You must file this form with your civil complaint. You will designate the type of case, whether the case is complex, number of causes of action, or whether the case is a class action.
||Ex Parte Application for Extension of Time to Serve Pleadings and Orders
||You file this form when you need more time to serve pleadings, e.g., Complaint, Cross-complaint, Petition, Answer or other responsive pleading. The judge will consider your request ex parte (without your appearance before the judge) and make an order. The order may reschedule a Case Management Conference date previously set. (A similar form is used in family law cases - see FL-306).
||Notice of Related Case
||There may be cases pending elsewhere with the same parties and based on the same or similar claims; or same or substantially identical transactions, incidents or events determining the same or substantially identical questions of law or fact; or involving claims against, title to, or damages to the same property; or likely to require substantial duplication of judicial resources if heard by different judges. The form is a "shout out" to the judge. It may or may not result in any judicial action. If you know of any related cases, file this form at the inception of your case.
||Notice of Settlement of Entire Case
||You file this notice when you unconditionally or conditionally settle your entire case. All hearings, trial, etc., will be canceled. If you fail to dismiss the case within 45 days of an unconditional settlement or within 45 days of a specified date for a conditional dismissal, the court will automatically dismiss your case unless you have already shown the court good cause why the case should not be dismissed.
||Notice of Stay of Proceedings
||You file this form when your case is stayed ("put on hold") because of a bankruptcy filing, court order, required arbitration, etc.
||Notice of Termination or Modification of Stay
||You file this form when a stay has been modified or vacated. For example, you are a landlord who sought relief from the automatic stay in your tenant's bankruptcy. When the bankruptcy court lifts the stay, you file this document to let the state court know the stay is lifted and you will proceed with your case.
