Effective May 17, 2021, four Unlawful Detainer (UD) courtrooms in the Stanley Mosk Courthouse will be designated as direct calendar UD courtrooms. Currently, there are two existing calendar/law and motion UD courtrooms and two UD trial courtrooms. Beginning Monday, Limited Jurisdiction UD cases will be assigned randomly to each of the four UD direct calendar courtrooms. By this reorganization, the Court hopes to improve management of cases, including having one judge assigned from start to finish, and thereby provide greater efficiency and predictability for litigants.

The four courtrooms identified below are direct calendar courtrooms (see Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles Local Rule 2.5) for purposes of case management and for the filing of any Code of Civil Procedure section 170.6 challenge.

Additionally, if a party is exempt from electronic filings, any ex parte application now must be filed by 8:30 a.m. the day of the hearing to be considered timely filed and reviewed prior to the hearing.

All parties are encouraged to appear remotely when possible. LACourtConnect (LACC) provides the video and audio services for remote appearances in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. LACC provides a convenient, safe option for appearing in court without having to come to court. For further information on LACC, please go to the Court’s website at
