New website for California court forms!

If you want any free court forms, the website has changed to www.courts.ca.gov.

This website is especially helpful for traffic matters since one can download both a trial by declaration form and a trial de novo form if one loses the trial by declaration.

The Importance of C.C.P. Section 170.6

Civil Code Section 170.6 deals with peremptory challenges against a judge. Why does this matter? Well, it doesn't. Unless, of course, you're facing a judge who refuses to allow your client release on his or her own recognizance. This is exactly what happened to me this morning. The judge had a policy to deny all O.R. (own recognizance) releases. Since I was appearing without my client, I would have had to continue the matter and my client would have had to pay the entire bail before he could get a trial date. Since the bail was for around $1,000.00, would would have posed a hardship. Thus, I filed the C.C.P. 170.6 challenge, and my matter was transferred to a more reasonable judge. So the point here is don't forget your right to challenge the judge if he is mean.

YouTube releases feature-length film, "Life in a Day"

YouTube has released the feature-length film, "Life in a Day."  More proof that YouTube is the new TV.  This film is still screening in some theaters and bypassed a DVD release, directly to YouTube.

These are interesting times.
