Shasta County Superior Court important information for week of August 6, 2018
Any matters that were scheduled for the week of July 30 – August 3, in Departments 4, 5, 11, and 12, will be heard the week of August 6-10 on the same day and time.
In other words, the court is rolling over the calendars for the week of July 30 – August 3 and will call them at the same time as the calendars for August 6-10.
Matters that are specially set for August 6-10 will proceed as calendared.
For those matters that were specially set for July 30 – August 3, Judge Bigelow and Commissioner Stomberg will determine the rescheduling of those matters. Judge Bigelow and Commissioner Stomberg may try to squeeze such matters in for hearings during the week of August 6-10, but that will be up to those individual judges, and, obviously, counsel will be notified.
Appointment of new board member
Tracey A. Amundson, an associate attorney with Maire & Deedon, has recently accepted a position on STCBA’s board as Member-at-Large. Our former Vice-President, Heidi Williams, resigned recently in order to pursue an employment opportunity in San Diego. We thank Heidi for her service as both Secretary/Treasurer last year and Vice-President this year.
As part of the changes, Sophia Meyer has been appointed our Vice-President, and Michael Ricks is now serving as our Secretary-Treasurer.
