HEARD AT WEST JUSTICE CENTER AND NO CIVIL OR SMALL CLAIMS FILINGS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THE
WEST JUSTICE CENTER
Pursuant to Government Code section 68106, the Superior Court of California, County of Orange is providing a 60 day notice of the change in court location for matters heard and documents filed in civil and small claims actions filed at the West Justice Center. The financial constraints imposed by the California state fiscal crisis, as well as the repeated decreases in state court funding, compel this change in court location.
Effective Monday, October 1, 2012:
Civil and small claims matters will no longer be heard at the West Justice Center located at 8141 13th Street, Westminster, California. In addition, documents for civil and small claims matters will no longer be accepted for filing at the West Justice Center. New civil and small claims matters impacted by this change must be filed at the court location listed below based on the city where the action arose, e.g., where the damage/accident occurred, where the agreement was signed; or where a defendant resides. If the defendant is a business, use the city where the business is located. If the action concerns real property, use the city where the real property is located.
Central Justice Center – Santa Ana North Justice Center – Fullerton
Fountain Valley Cypress
Garden Grove Los Alamitos
Huntington Beach Stanton
The newly filed matters will then be heard in the Justice Center where they are properly filed.
