SCHEDULING NOTES FOR JUDGE BETH LABSON FREEMAN
Courtroom 3, 5th Floor, San Jose
(Rev. May 21, 2020)

 

COVID19 SPECIAL PROCEDURES

*** CRIMINAL MATTERS***

The Court will resume limited criminal proceedings in the San Jose Courthouse commencing June 1, 2020.  Currently scheduled pleas and sentencings for out of custody defendants will proceed on the dates set. The specific time of each hearing may be adjusted to control the number of people in the courtroom.  Pleas and sentencings for in custody defendants will also proceed as scheduled, limited by the transportation requirements of the U.S. Marshal.  No more than 10 people may be in the Courtroom at any time and face coverings will be required.  Status hearings will proceed as scheduled and will be conducted by teleconference only.  For status conferences, counsel shall advise the Court whether the defendant waives appearance or will requests appearance by telephone.  Members of the public and press will participate by teleconference only.  In Court evidentiary hearings requiring witnesses may be scheduled as needed.  Please review the Court’s calendar to confirm the time of your hearing.  You should plan to arrive at the security entrance no more than 15 minutes before your hearing time and you will be allowed to enter the courtroom only after the previous case has concluded.

 

***CIVIL MATTERS***

Judge Freeman’s preference for oral argument for most cases will continue and all cases set for hearing will be held on Zoom or teleconference unless a particular case is submitted without argument. Cancelation of hearing dates will be placed on the docket.

 

Parties shall submit Chambers copies for all motions.

 

Although civil jury trials have been temporarily suspended, all Final Pre-Trial Conferences will proceed as scheduled so that cases will be ready for trial as soon as civil jury trials resume.
