SB 1146 was recently signed by Gov. Newsome. This new law was sponsored by the California Defense Counsel and the Consumer Attorneys of California. Two of the provisions include:
(1) Allowing remote depositions on a permanent basis: Amended Code of Civil Procedure section 2025.310 allows remote depositions even after the state of emergency is lifted.
(2) Clarity re Deadline Extension: Code of Civil Procedure section 599 eliminated confusion because it extends the trial related deadlines (that have not already passed when trial is continued) for same length of time as the continuance or postponement of the trial date. This provision is automatically repealed 180 days after California’s March 4 state of emergency is lifted.
