Court Announces Revisions to Emergency Local Rules
The Placer Superior Court has amended its Emergency Local Rules effective January 31, 2022. This change was made to simplify the remote appearance request process for attorneys in criminal matters. For most criminal matters (excluding contested violation of probation hearings, court trials, jury trials, and preliminary hearings), attorneys who are appearing on behalf of their client pursuant to P.C. 977 may self-schedule their video appearance on the court’s public website no later than 4 pm the court day before the hearing (http://www.placer.courts.ca.gov/RAS.shtml). Attorneys who are not appearing on behalf of their client and defendants are still required to file the request form, which can be found on the Local Forms webpage.
