More Efficient Procedures Reduce Wasted Court Time,
Save Costs of Cases for All Parties


(Encino, Calif., May 3, 2007) -- In a major new decision in administrative policy adopted by the California Judicial Council, changes in the way simple civil collection matters are handled in court will save much wasted time in useless and needless appearances, reducing the public cost of such cases and increasing the efficiencies of the courts.

Under the new rules effective July 1, 2007, collection cases valued at not more than $25,000 arising from a transaction in which property, services, or money were acquired on credit from a business or person will become categorized separately and handled more efficiently under a new Rule of Court.
