TO THE VAN NUYS COMMUNITY:
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, please be advised that we are expanding our CourtCall capabilities and those hearings for which CourtCall may be used.
During this emergency situation, CourtCall will be available to all parties for Status Conferences, Mandatory Settlement Conferences, and Priority Conferences. Please note that if at an MSC, the Pre-Trial Conference Statement must still be completed and filed at the time of the hearing. This may be accomplished by the parties beforehand, or during the conference via the CourtCall fax (if available) or email.
Presently about half of our Judges have CourtCall installed. All Judges should have the system available in the next few weeks.
We appreciate your cooperation during these times. Parties are encouraged to maintain social distance when possible. It is suggested that parties meet and confer in advance of a scheduled hearing, or conduct discussions in other areas, to reduce the time spent in the courtroom.
Further measures may be taken as events warrant.
Every Workers' Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB) legacy case number has a corresponding EAMS case number. If you know either number, you can use this page to look up the corresponding case number. https://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/eams/eams-lc/EAMSCases.asp
