Placer County Superior Court to have limited service days

-A +A

With the holidays arriving next week the Placer County Superior Court will be providing limited services during the last week of December.

On limited service days, Dec. 24, 26, 27, 28 and 31, only Department 13, the courtroom located at the Placer County Jail, 2775 Richardson Drive in Auburn, will remain open. The court will be closed on Dec. 25 and Jan. 1, 2013.

The courtroom in Department 13 will handle criminal arraignments, certain time-sensitive juvenile proceedings, and any last day criminal matters. All other courtrooms and clerks’ offices will be closed.

Because the limited service days will not qualify as holidays for purposes of calculating statutory time requirements, a drop-box will be provided to permit same-day filings at all court locations that otherwise accept filings. All documents placed in the drop-box prior to 4 p.m. on a limited service day will receive a filed date equal to the day deposited.

Courtroom staff will accept urgent non-criminal filings (e.g., requests for restraining orders or requests for an unlawful detainer stay of execution) and the court will hear such matters in Department 13 if emergency circumstances warrant such action.

The court finds this action necessary due to the ongoing state fiscal crisis, which has resulted in multiple years of significant reductions in state funding to the Placer County Superior Court.
