Pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure 1005(b), your opposition papers must be filed with the court and served on all parties at least nine court days (not calendar days, court days) before the hearing date.


You need to file and serve your written opposition nine COURT days before the motion hearing date. You must serve your opposition by fax, overnight delivery or personal service pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 1005(b).
