California State Senator Noreen Evans

    No practitioner can afford to miss this discussion of the Expedited Jury Trials Act, effective January 1, 2011, creating an entirely new voluntary option for completed one-day trial of any civil case before a smaller jury, with limited peremptory challenges and relaxed rules of evidence. Hear from the legislator who drafted the rules and AB 2284, our presiding judicial officer, and a pre-eminent trial attorney.Clients and attorneys will be asking:• Can we use the EJT process for our case?
    • Should we?
    • What are the costs?
    • What are the new Rules of Court and provisions in the Code of Civil Procedure?
    • What about appeal rights?
    • How will EJT work in Sonoma County Superior Court?
    • Can the parties stipulate to privately retain judicial officers?This program is a must for all civil attorneys who want to understand the biggest change in civil procedure in decades.
