Tentative Rulings

Prior to a Civil Law & Motion or Probate hearing, the Court may issue a tentative ruling pursuant to California Rule of Court 3.1308.  Unless a party requests to appear and notifies both the opposing party and the court, no hearing will be held, and the tentative ruling will become the order of the Court.

Currently, tentative rulings are only available for the Ukiah Probate and Law & Motion calendar heard on Fridays at 9:30am.

Access to Tentative Rulings

Tentative rulings are available after 3:00pm on the court day prior to the hearing.  You may view tentative rulings on-line, or call the Tentative Rulings Information Line.

Information Line:  (707) 468-2007, Option 1
