Trial brief in civil case in California

The use of a trial brief in a civil case in California is the topic of this blog post. Trial briefs in California are an excellent tool to notify the Judge hearing the case as well as all other parties who have appeared in the case about the main contentions made by each party involved in that particular case.

A trial brief typically begins with a brief statement of the case, followed by a short listing of the contentions made by the opposing party, then a more detailed listing of the contentions made by the party filing the trial brief along with citations to case law and statutory authority that support their contentions.

While the specific rules may vary for each particular Court or Judge, as a general rule it is best to serve the trial brief on all parties who have made a general appearance, the opposing party, or their attorneys at least ten (10) calendar days before the trial date, then file the trial brief with the Court along with a proof of service. A party should check with the Courtroom clerk to determine the specific requirements for that department as many Judges do have very specific requirements for the filing and service of a trial brief.
