Trial brief for unlawful detainer (eviction) in California

A trial brief for an unlawful detainer (eviction) in California is the topic of this blog post.  A trial brief is used to notify the Judge hearing the case about the affirmative defenses asserted by the defendant and should contain citations to case law and statutory authority that support the defendant’s contentions as well as exhibits if necessary that support the contentions made in the trial brief.

Although not mandatory the use of a trial brief is a good idea as it allows a defendant to present their side of the case more effectively. It may also help in convincing the Judge that the affirmative defenses asserted by the defendant are valid and have evidentiary support, and that the legal points made by the defendant are supported by case law and statutory authority.

A party should contact the clerk in the Courtroom where the trial will be held to determine their specific requirements for filing and service of a trial brief.  Many judges have very specific requirements and deadlines for the filing of a trial brief.
