CIVIL LAW AND MOTION CALENDAR

Counsel need not reserve hearing dates but should check below to make sure the desired date is not blocked. 

The default rule is that hearings on civil motions will be heard in person.  The Court may notify the parties in advance of the hearing that it will be heard via Zoom rather than in person.  Parties may stipulate/request to have a hearing by Zoom video, but they must do so at least one week in advance of the hearing.  The Court may deny the request if it believes an in-person hearing would be more beneficial.  The Court is disinclined to hold hearings via Zoom for complex or dispositive motions or if counsel for all parties are based locally.

Judge Lin does not issue tentative rulings.  

If the Court determines a hearing is not necessary, it will usually be vacated no later than two days before the hearing.

ZOOM WEBINAR INFORMATION

For connection information for all proceedings via Zoom, please see Judge Lin’s webpage listed at:

https://www.cand.uscourts.gov/judges/lin-rita-f-rfl/

Please review this guidance on participating in a Zoom Webinar or Meeting.

As a reminder, any recording of a court proceeding held by video or teleconference, including “screen-shots” or other audio or visual copying of a hearing, is prohibited.
