TENTATIVE RULINGS

Probate Calendar

7/21/16 2:30 p.m.

Courtroom 18 – Judge René Chouteau

 

 

If the tentative ruling is accepted, no appearance is necessary unless otherwise indicated.  You must notify the probate clerk at (707) 521-6893 if you wish to be heard in response to the tentative ruling.  Any interested party who wishes to be heard in opposition to a petition must notify all other parties of the intent to appear.  Both notifications must be completed no later than 4:00 p.m. on the court day immediately preceding the day of the hearing.

 

Unless notification to the probate clerk has been given as provided above, the tentative rulings shall become the rulings of the court at 2:45 p.m. on the day of the hearing. 

 

In accordance with CRC Rule 3.670, Court Call is now available for telephone appearances on the Probate Calendar, except for hearings on petitions to confirm the sale of property and other matters in which the court determines that a personal appearance would materially assist in the determination of proceedings or in the effective management or resolution of the particular case.
