9 STANDING ORDER RE SANTA CLARA COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION CODE OF PROFESSIONALISM Good cause therefore appearing, upon consideration by and with the approval of the Judges of the Santa Clara Superior Court, it is hereby ORDERED that the Code of Professionalism adopted by the Santa Clara County Bar Association in June 1992 will serve as a guide to the Judges of the Santa Clara Superior Court in the exercise of their individual discretion when adjudicating disputes among attorneys. While the Code does not have the force of law or regulation with respect to the conduct of attorneys, it reflects the view of the members of the Santa Clara County Bar Association regarding appropriate attorney behavior. As such it is helpful in giving Judges guidance about the expectations of attorneys concerning acceptable behavior. Cf., Kloepfer v. Commission on Judicial Performance (1989), 49 Cal.3d 826, 838 fn. 6. It is further ORDERED that notice of this standing order shall be published to all attorneys practicing before this Court by appending a copy of this order to the Local Rules of Court. Dated: September 30, 1992 /s/ Leonard Edwards Presiding Judge

13 SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL RULES RULE 1 DIFFERENTIAL CIVIL CASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM A. OVERVIEW (1) PURPOSE The purpose of the Differential Civil Case Management System is to ensure that, from the commencement of litigation to its resolution, whether by trial or settlement, any elapsed time other than reasonably required for pleadings, discovery and court events is unacceptable and should be eliminated. To enable the just and efficient resolution of cases, the Court, and not the lawyers or litigants, should control the pace of litigation. The Court is strongly committed to reducing delay, and once achieved, maintaining a current docket. (2) APPLICATION (Eff. 7/01/07) (Eff. 7/01/07) (Eff. 7/01/07) The differential civil case management system applies to all general civil cases as defined in CRC 1 1.6(4), including limited and unlimited civil cases. (3) INCORPORATION OF STATE STATUTES AND RULES The Trial Court Delay Reduction Act (Gov. Code et seq.), California Rules of Court, Titles 1, 2, and 3, and the Standards of Judicial Administration, Standards 2.1 and 2.2, are incorporated into these rules. (4) PRESUMPTION When a general civil case is filed, it is presumed to be subject to the disposition goal under case management plan 1, as defined in CRC 3.714(b). (Eff. 7/01/11) B. CASE MANAGEMENT JUDGES General civil cases are managed by case management judges designated by the Presiding Judge. When a general civil case is filed, it is assigned to a case management judge. The case management judge may thereafter assign the case to another judge or judicial officer for any purpose. In accordance with California Rule of Court , the Presiding Judge or designee will assign a judicial officer to conduct expedited jury trials. Pursuant to that assignment, case management judges may thereafter transfer to the assigned judicial officer a case in which the parties request to participate in an expedited jury trial. 1 All references to CRC refer to the California Rules of Court 1

14 RULE 1 con t SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL RULES C. CASES INVOLVING EMPLOYEES (Eff. 1/01/11) If a court employee or deputy sheriff working at a courthouse, or a member of his or her family, is a party to a case, the clerk or Supervising Judge of the Civil Division shall transfer the case to the South County Courthouse, unless the location is specified by statute, including Civil Code and and Code of Civil Procedure 392 and 395. D. PROPER COURTHOUSE FOR FILING A GENERAL CIVIL CASE (1) All unlimited civil cases must be filed in the Downtown Superior Court. (Eff. 11/24/14) (2) All limited civil cases must be filed in the Downtown Superior Court. E. CIVIL LAWSUIT NOTICE (Eff. 7/01/08) (Eff. 7/01/08) (Eff. 7/01/12) (1) When the complaint or other initial pleading is filed, the Clerk of the Court completes a Civil Lawsuit Notice, in all cases except those designated as CRC Rule collections. (See attached form CV ) The Civil Lawsuit Notice assigns the case to a case management judge and schedules the first Case Management Conference (CMC) before the case management judge or the ADR Administrator. The party who filed the initial pleading must serve a copy of the Civil Lawsuit Notice on all other parties named in the pleading. A party who subsequently files a pleading that adds a new party must serve a copy of the Civil Lawsuit Notice on all new parties. Service of the Civil Lawsuit Notice must be done at the same time as service of the pleading. When the Civil Lawsuit Notice is served, it must reflect the most up-to-date information available concerning the date, time and location of the next CMC. Therefore, the party serving the Notice must complete the information on the next CMC if the first CMC was continued or has passed. (2) CRC Rule collections cases. The plaintiff may designate a case as a CRC Rule collections case by filing a Civil Case Cover Sheet with the box Rule collections checked. When the complaint is filed, the Clerk of the Court completes a Civil Lawsuit Notice Rule Collections Cases. (See attached form CV-5052.) The plaintiff must serve a copy of the Civil Lawsuit Notice Rule Collections Cases on all defendants. A party who subsequently files a pleading that adds a new party must serve a copy of the Civil Lawsuit Notice Rule Collections Cases on all new parties. (3) When a case is filed alleging violation of the California Environmental Quality Act, the plaintiff shall state in the caption of the complaint, directly below the title of the complaint: ACTION BASED ON CALIFORNIA ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY ACT. 2

15 RULE 1 con t SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL RULES F. MANDATORY CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCES (1) DEFINITION (Eff. 1/01/04) (Eff. 7/01/08) (Eff. 7/01/04) (Eff. 7/01/04) (Eff. 1/01/06) RULE 2 The term Case Management Conference ( CMC ) includes the first Case Management Conference, subsequent Case Management Conferences, ADR Status Conferences, Trial Setting Conferences, Dismissal Reviews, and any other conference scheduled by the Court. (2) DATE OF FIRST CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE a. In all cases, except those designated as "uninsured motorist" and "Rule collections," the Clerk of the Court will schedule the first CMC approximately 120 days from the date of filing of the complaint. b. Uninsured motorist cases. The plaintiff may designate a case as an uninsured motorist case by filing and serving a declaration demonstrating that the designation is appropriate. If the declaration is filed with the complaint, the Clerk of the Court will schedule the first CMC approximately 180 days from the date of filing of the complaint. If the plaintiff files the declaration at a later time, the Case Management Conference will not be continued unless the plaintiff applies for a continuance. (3) REQUEST TO CHANGE CMC DATE Pursuant to written stipulation of all parties, the Court may advance a CMC. Upon timely application and a showing of good cause, the Court may continue a CMC. If the Court continues a conference, the party who applied for the continuance must serve notice upon all parties who were served with a copy of the Civil Lawsuit Notice. (4) MANDATORY ATTENDANCE Attendance at all CMCs is mandatory unless otherwise excused by the Court. ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION (ADR) A. POLICY STATEMENT Many cases can be resolved to the satisfaction of all parties without the necessity of traditional litigation, which can be expensive, time consuming, and stressful. The Court finds that it is in the best interests of the parties that they participate in alternatives to traditional litigation, including arbitration, mediation, neutral evaluation, special masters and referees, and voluntary settlement conferences. Therefore, the Court will refer all general civil cases to an appropriate form of 3

16 RULE 2-con t SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL RULES ADR before they are set for trial, unless there is good cause to dispense with the ADR requirement. (1) DISCLAIMER The Court and the California Administrative Office of the Courts may not defend or indemnify any ADR provider or neutral who serves on a court related program, or who is listed on a court ADR provider list. ADR providers are encouraged to seek errors and omissions insurance from a qualified insurance provider. (Eff. 1/01/03) B. UNLIMITED CIVIL CASES (Eff. 1/01/11) (Eff. 1/01/11) (Eff. 1/01/04) (Eff. 7/01/07) (Eff. 1/01/11) (1) In unlimited civil cases, if all parties have appeared, then all parties may stipulate to any form of ADR at any time. The Court has an ADR Stipulation and Order Form for this purpose. (See attached form CV ) If the parties submit a signed ADR stipulation at least 15 calendar days before a Case Management Conference (CMC), and the Court approves the stipulation and the order is filed, the CMC will be canceled and an ADR Status Conference will be scheduled. A stipulation to a type of ADR other than judicial arbitration will not cancel a CMC unless it contains the name of the ADR provider and the date on which the ADR will be conducted. (2) If, at any time, the parties stipulate to a type of ADR other than judicial arbitration, but have not already selected an ADR provider and date, then, within 20 calendar days, plaintiff s counsel must inform the ADR Administrator in writing of the name of the ADR provider and the date on which the ADR will be conducted. Parties may use the Court s ADR Stipulation and Order Form for this purpose. (See attached form CV ) (3) Parties who have previously stipulated to judicial arbitration may later stipulate to mediation or neutral evaluation by submitting a signed ADR stipulation and proposed order to the case management judge. (4) If the parties stipulate to judicial arbitration, the arbitrator will be selected pursuant to the procedure outlined in CRC (5) If the parties stipulate to Civil Early Settlement Conference, the procedure will be governed by Local Civil Rule 4. C. LIMITED CIVIL CASES In limited civil cases, if the parties file a signed ADR stipulation at least 15 calendar days before the first CMC, and the Court approves the stipulation and the order is filed, the Court will cancel the conference and mail notice of an ADR Status Conference. A stipulation to a type of ADR other than judicial arbitration 4

17 RULE 2-con t SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL RULES (Eff. 1/01/11) will not cancel the CMC unless it contains the name of the ADR provider and the date on which the ADR will be conducted. If, prior to the initial CMC, the parties have not stipulated to a form of ADR, the case management judge will decide the appropriate form of ADR, if any, at the Conference. D. MEDIATORS AND NEUTRAL EVALUATORS (1) The ADR Administrator has a list of Court-approved ADR providers and information about their qualifications, the services they provide, and the fees they charge. (2) The parties may choose any ADR provider they wish, including a provider who is not on the list of Court-approved ADR providers. (3) The ADR provider need not be an attorney. (4) All participants in the ADR process must participate in good faith. (5) In conducting a session, the ADR provider must require the attendance of persons with full authority to resolve the dispute. The provider may not permit a telephone appearance unless good cause was shown in a timely manner before the session. (6) Unless the ADR provider s fees and expenses have been fixed by the Court, the parties and the provider must agree on the fees and expenses. The fees and expenses of the ADR provider must be borne by the parties equally, unless they agree otherwise. (Eff. 1/01/11) E. COURT-APPROVED ADR PROVIDERS (1) Court-approved ADR providers must be available to accept at least one pro bono or modest means case per year. (2) When an ADR provider is added to the list of court-approved ADR providers, the ADR Administrator will send the following documents to the provider: a. An ADR Attendance Form; b. An ADR Provider s Statement whether an agreement was reached; c. An ADR Evaluation, to be filled out separately by the parties and their counsel. 5

18 RULE 2-con t SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL RULES (Eff. 7/01/11) (3) At the conclusion of the ADR process, the provider must give copies of the ADR Evaluation to the parties and their counsel. Within the next 10 calendar days, the provider must complete the ADR Provider s Statement and sends it to the ADR Administrator. A mediator must maintain the Attendance Sheet in Compliance with CRC (a). (Eff. 1/01/11) F. ADR COMPLIANCE Once a case has been set for an ADR review hearing, it is the Court s expectation that ADR will be completed by the date of the ADR review hearing. Failure to complete ADR by the date of the ADR review hearing may lead to sanctions up to and including vacation of the ADR order and setting the case for trial or trial setting. G. ADR GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE (Eff. 7/01/09) (Eff. 7/01/09) (Eff. 7/01/09) (Eff. 7/01/09) (Eff. 7/01/09) (Eff. 7/01/09) It is the goal of the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara ADR Program to encourage excellence and the highest ethical standards in ADR practice. The Santa Clara Superior Court has established the following procedure for handling grievances regarding the conduct of any neutral serving on any of the Civil Division s ADR programs. (1) All complaints regarding the conduct of ADR program neutrals must be submitted in writing to the designated Complaint Coordinator under CRC 3.867(a). (2) When a complaint regarding a neutral is received by the Court, it will be directed to the Complaint Coordinator for processing. The Complaint Coordinator will send a written acknowledgment of the receipt of the complaint to the complainant. (3) The Complaint Coordinator will assemble available information regarding the complaint, and preliminarily review the complaint to determine the appropriate response. The Complaint Coordinator may respond directly to the complainant, or may refer the complaint to the Civil Supervising Judge for review. (4) Upon referral from the Complaint Coordinator, the Civil Supervising Judge will promptly review the complaint and determine whether further investigation is appropriate. If the Civil Supervising Judge finds a complaint does not warrant further investigation, no further action will be taken. (5) The Civil Supervising Judge will refer all other complaints to an investigative subcommittee of the Court ADR Committee. 6

19 RULE 2-con t SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL RULES (Eff. 7/01/09) (Eff. 7/01/09) (Eff. 7/01/09) (Eff. 7/01/09) RULE 3 (6) The investigative subcommittee of the ADR Committee will review the complaint, conduct an investigation, and make a recommendation for action to be taken by an appointed subcommittee of the Civil Committee of the Bench. A copy of the complaint will be provided to the neutral, who will be allowed an opportunity to respond. The appointed subcommittee may recommend that no further action be taken on the complaint, that the neutral be counseled, admonished, or reprimanded, that further training be required, or that the neutral be suspended or removed from the Court s ADR program panel. The final decision on the appropriate action to be taken, based on this recommendation, will be made by the Presiding Judge or his or her designee. The retention of neutrals on the Court s ADR program panel is at the sole discretion of the Court. The neutral will be notified promptly in writing of the final decision. (7) Each complainant will be notified promptly in writing of the disposition of the complaint. (8) All papers filed and proceedings conducted on a complaint against a neutral will be confidential to the same extent the particular ADR procedure is confidential. (9) Each member of the investigative subcommittee and the appointed subcommittee, as well as the Civil Supervising Judge and the final decision maker on the complaint, will be covered by the disqualification under CRC JUDGES ADR PROGRAM Parties may apply at the earliest opportunity to participate in an ADR session with a sitting civil judge. These ADR options include mediation and settlement conferences. The program is governed by the following rules: A. ELIGIBILITY/CRITERIA FOR PARTICIPATION (1) The case, if tried with or without a jury, would consume significant court resources. (2) The parties and their attorneys represent in good faith that they desire to resolve the case, and that they agree to participate in an ADR session with an agreed-upon judge. (3) The parties are prepared to complete an ADR session as soon as the case is accepted into the program. (4) The Court has obtained jurisdiction over all necessary parties so that a resolution resulting from an ADR session will be final. (5) The Supervising Civil Judge accepts the case for the program despite the failure to satisfy one or more of the above-stated criteria. 7

(4) When the application is approved, all law and motion and discovery proceedings shall be stayed until completion of the ADR session, and all case management conferences shall be vacated, except as otherwise ordered by the Court.
