Oral Argument Calendars

Notice regarding masks

In an effort to provide a safe environment, members of the public will be required to wear masks at all times while in the building, including while attending oral argument. Those presenting argument may remove their masks when speaking at the lectern. To provide social distancing in the courtroom, occupancy will be limited.

Notice regarding oral argument

Beginning with oral argument in June 2022, the Court of Appeal, Third Appellate District, will conduct oral argument in-person at the Stanley Mosk Library and Courts Building, 914 Capitol Mall, Sacramento, California 95814.  Those participating in oral argument who do not wish to appear in-person may file an application to appear telephonically.  Telephonic oral argument will be granted only upon a showing of exceptional good cause.

Policy on Electronic Devices in the Courtroom:

Laptop computers and electronic tablets may be used in the court room but must be silenced and placed in “airplane mode” at all times. Such devices may be used by counsel or self-represented litigants only as an aid in presenting oral argument and cannot be used to display demonstrative evidence to the court or for any other purpose. Cellular telephones and other electronic devices are not permitted in the court room. No audio or video recording or photography is permitted in the court room except in compliance with California Rules of Court, Rule 1.150.
