Court Reservation User Agreement

Before proceeding you must agree to the CRS User Agreement

Journal Technologies (referred to hereafter as "JournalTech") and the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles (referred to hereafter as "the Court") requires that you read and agree to the following terms and conditions for this online Court Reservation System (referred to hereafter as "CRS") before use:

  1. CRS allows you to reserve and manage a motion hearing date. You will be asked to provide information and answer a series of questions. You need to provide the required information and answers to those questions accurately and completely. Incomplete or inaccurate information and/or answers may result in delay or cancellation of your reservation and/or related hearing.
  2. Prior to scheduling or continuing any motion in the CRS system, you must review the online information (if any) for the specific courtroom in which you are reserving motions. There may be specific and unique conditions associated with the scheduling and continuance of motions and proceedings using CRS in the various courtrooms.
  3. Once you have reserved your hearing date in the CRS system, you must file your motion with the Court within 3 days of making the reservation or your reservation will be automatically cancelled. Proper filing of your motion includes submission through an electronic filing service provider (EFSP) and including the CRS reservation number in your submission, or, if you are exempt from efiling, you may submit via any acceptable method as allowed by court rules.
  4. You will be charged any applicable continuance fee if you reschedule your reservation. No additional fees are charged to use CRS.  Once the motion hearing is rescheduled, the fee is non-refundable, non-exchangeable and non-transferable.
  5. Use of CRS does not alter or extend any statutory deadlines, including giving notice. It is your sole responsibility to select a date and serve and file the corresponding documents pursuant to the statutory requirements.
  6. If you are filing multiple motions, you must make a separate reservation for each motion, even if the motions will be heard simultaneously.
  7. You must not reserve more than one hearing date in CRS for the same motion.
  8. You must furnish one or more electronic notification (e-mail) addresses at which you agree to accept reservation notifications, in the manner specified by JournalTech.
  9. After you make your reservation via CRS, JournalTech will send a reservation email to the e-mail address that you provided. The email will include a Reservation ID and PIN that will be required should you wish to reprint your receipt, update your contact information, reschedule or cancel your reservation. If your case is assigned to a courtroom with more than one judge, the email will also include an attached chart setting forth the name of the judge who will normally hear law & motion hearings at specified times on specified days. Receiving the email does not mean your motion has been added to the Court's calendar.
  10. You can only consider your reservation has been added to the court's calendar as a future hearing date when you have done all of the following: (a) served and filed the motion document(s), (b) paid all applicable fees, and (c) received a confirmation email from the Court.
  11. In consideration of your use of CRS, you agree to maintain and promptly update your Contact Information to keep it current.
  12. Although CRS sends automatic email when the status of a reservation changes, it is your responsibility to ensure CRS and the Court's record reflect your understanding of the reservation and/or future hearing date status. You can track the status of your reservation using the CRS View/Update Reservation feature, and you can track future hearing dates and confirm the filing of documents using Case Summary.

Nevertheless, it is crucial that, as a user, you protect against unauthorized access to your PIN and to your computer and that you always log off when finished using a shared computer.

  14. You must comply with all requirements of JournalTech to ensure the integrity of the reservation and to protect sensitive personal information.
  15. You will be assigned a PIN unique to your reservation. Please treat your PIN carefully as you would your credit card or other important personal information. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the PIN for your reservation, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your PIN or reservation. You agree to (a) immediately notify JournalTech of any unauthorized use of your PIN or any other breach of security.
