Trial brief in California unlawful detainer (eviction) case

A trial brief in a California unlawful detainer (eviction) case is the topic of this blog post. The use of a trial brief is one of the best ways to notify the judge hearing the case about the various affirmative defenses asserted by the defendant. Trial briefs should contain citations to case law and statutory authority supporting the contentions of the defendant and should cite to any exhibits that will be introduced at the trial that support the contentions made in the trial brief.

I recommend the use of a trial brief in almost every case as it will allow the 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 contentions made by the defendant are supported by case law and statutory authority.

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