Civil Lawsuit Basics: Motions for Summary Judgment

Thursday, January 23, 2020:  12:15 p.m. - 1:45 p.m.

A motion for summary judgment or summary adjudication allows a party to obtain judgment in their favor for an entire case or part of a case. These motions are based entirely on written submissions and avoid the time, expense, and uncertainty of a trial. Learn how to determine whether a summary judgment motion might be appropriate in your case, how to bring one before a California state court, and how to respond when one is brought against you.

Class covers:

  • When summary judgment and summary adjudication are appropriate
  • Timing and notice requirements
  • Requirements for submitting evidence
  • How to respond to this type of motion

Class approved for Court Interpreter Minimum Continuing Education (CIMCE) credit.
