Pandemic Slams Courthouse Doors

… On Folks Filing Lawsuits

3/26/2020 10:48 AM PT


Here’s what it’s come to in Los Angeles … you can’t go inside the courthouse anymore to file a lawsuit …. one brave soul stands by the door, grabs your legal docs, and then sends you on your way.

The main courthouse in Downtown L.A. is now posting a court clerk by the dropbox. She receives and monitors lawsuit filings from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.

It’s become increasingly difficult and in some cases impossible to get justice these days. No such thing as a jury trial at most courthouses — with good reason, of course. And, increasingly, it’s hard to get any matter heard before a judge.

Check out the restrictions at the Downtown L.A. courthouse … and with the direction things are going, the list will get longer.

There have been real issues with family law in many states. We’re told a number of family law courts are only hearing domestic violence cases. There are other issues — especially regarding child and spousal support — that have just been put on ice.
