Oral Argument Updates

Beginning with oral argument in June 2022, the Court of Appeal, Third Appellate District, will conduct oral argument in-person at the Stanley Mosk Library and Courts Building, 914 Capitol Mall, Sacramento, California 95814. Those participating in oral argument who do not wish to appear in-person may file an application to appear telephonically. Telephonic oral argument will be granted only upon a showing of exceptional good cause.

The Fifth District recently released a memo indicating that in-person and video oral arguments will begin in May. They are arranging the capability to have attorneys in court and via video on the same case. If you are arguing in court, you will be able to see the party appearing via video. If you are arguing remotely, you will be able to see all the justices and the opposing party. The justices will have individual monitors on the bench and will be able to view all parties.
