What is the deadline in California to serve the trial brief and motion in limine on the Plaintiff's counsel in a limited civil?
Sacramento, CA |
I've looked up the Rule 3.1548. Pretrial Submissions, and that says 25 days before the Trial for serving a motion in limine on the Plaintiff. Since I am getting close to the cutoff, am I allowed to overnight my motion and still use the POS-030 proof of service form? I am also assuming that the "25 days" before the trial are actually calendar days and not Court days. Am I correct? What is the drop-off date to serve the Trial Brief? 25 days? When I have my motion in Limine served before 25 days, I will not have the Sheriff's declaration who will attempt to serve a CCP98 affiant with a subpoena, since the affiant is not available at a given address until 20 days before Trial. Should I bring my declaration in support of the motion with me to the Trial?
