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 select Ukiah calendars.


Access to Tentative Rulings - Civil Law & Motion

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.
