Civil Litigation Roundtable Discussion featuring
The Honorable Craig Riemer
Judge, Riverside Superior Court
 
Have you ever wanted the opportunity to sit down with a judge and ask for advice on civil litigation? How should I draft a proposed order? How should I argue a particular type of motion? What is the best way to object to evidence in a motion I am opposing? Why did my request to continue my trial get denied?
 
Or to ask questions about how the Court operates: What is the role of the research attorneys? How do I get a proposed order filed quickly? How far in advance do judges prepare for a hearing?
 
Here is your chance: Judge Riemer usually meets informally with a small number of the civil litigation bar during the lunch hour on the first Monday of every month at the RCBA building to field your questions and give you candid answers. However, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, this next meeting will be via Zoom.
 
The next roundtable is:
Monday, August 3, 2020 from 12:00-1:00 PM, via Zoom
 
Please submit your questions prior to this webinar to rcba@riversidecountybar.com by July 31 at 3:00 p.m.
 
After responding to your questions, other topics may include:
  • How to draft GAL applications that will not be rejected.
  • How to avoid a case management conference (i.e., what information the court needs in a CMS to make a CMC unnecessary).
