Court Call Telephonic Appearances

Counsel and Pro-Per litigants may make a CourtCall appearance by serving and filing with CourtCall (not the Court), not less than 3 court days prior to the hearing date, CourtCall's Request for Telephonic Appearance form and paying a fee that is set by CourtCall.

A CourtCall appearance is made as part of the Court's regular calendar and all counsel and pro-se litigants who have timely filed their request form and paid the fee may appear by dialing the Courtroom's dedicated toll free teleconference number, and access code (if any) which will be provided by CourtCall, LLC. A pre-hearing check-in will occur 5 minutes prior to the scheduled hearing time.

A party may obtain additional information by calling the CourtCall, not the Court, at (310) 342-0888 or (888) 882-6878.
