Plaintiff did notify me before 10am that they were going to file an Ex Parte Application in SF Superior Court, but they didn't e-file it until several hours *after* 4pm the day before the hearing. So I was under the impression that they had again decided against filing an ex parte application.
It is on. Filing is not your problem, notice is. Hopefully you have filed a response or at least plan to appear.
If your case is a general civil matter, there is no such advance filing requirement. There is an advance filing requirement in some specialized cases (such as domestic violence matters).
The information given here is meant to provide general information to the public; it does not create an attorney-client relationship.
In Los Angeles, you do not have to file the papers until the hearing and they must serve you before the hearing, usually at the time that they file with the Court. You should complain to the court that if they could file it they should also have served it. Whatever they told you in the notice you should prepare for. If they ask for anything else state there was no notice.
