Effective August 3, 2015, the on-line Court Reservation System (CRS) will expand to include Department 19 and Department 77 at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse, located at 111 N. Hill St., Los Angeles 90012. Department 19 is an independent calendar courtroom and Department 77 is the assigned department for all limited jurisdiction civil non-collection cases.
Effective August 3, 2015, parties with cases assigned to these courtrooms must reserve a date for law and motion hearings, via CRS, on the Court’s website at www.lacourt.org under LA Court Online, Court Reservation System and must also use CRS to continue motions. Parties with cases assigned to other courtrooms will continue to follow the existing procedures of the respective courtrooms. CRS is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
When using CRS, the reserving party will receive an email notification (and optional text message) when:
• a reservation is made,
• the Court has received and processed the motion document(s),
• a reservation is rescheduled, or
• a reservation is canceled.
Parties will be charged the applicable motion filing fee and/or first paper fee at the time the reservation is made. Once the motion hearing date is reserved, the fees are non-refundable. No additional fees will be charged to use CRS.
At the time of payment, CRS will provide a receipt with the reservation ID and receipt number. When the corresponding motion is presented for filing at the Filing Window, the receipt must be attached as the last page of the motion and the reservation ID must be noted on the motion face page under other hearing information.
Use of CRS or its content does not supersede any statutes, rules, and/or policies/procedures related to motions and/or giving notice.
As per the notice to attorneys issued on June 19, 2015, Departments 19 and 77 join these civil courtrooms also implementing CRS on August 3, 2015:
• Compton Courthouse: Department B
• Governor George Deukmejian Courthouse: Departments S26 and S27
• Torrance Courthouse: Departments B and M.
For additional information on the motion reservation process, parties are directed to read the CRS Instructions and Information available on the Court’s website at www.lacourt.org under LA Court Online, Court Reservation System.
