Chapter Summary


ABSTRACT TEXT:

"Venue" refers to the particular geographic area in which a court with jurisdiction may hear and determine a case.

This chapter of California Points and Authorities contains memoranda for use in supporting or opposing motions for change of venue in civil actions. These memoranda are organized in separate parts corresponding to the basic grounds for change of venue. The first part of the chapter discusses motions for change of venue to the county of the defendant's residence, as well as motions for change of venue to the court where a local cause of action should be tried. It also discusses counter motions to retain the case in the county where the action was commenced, based on the ground that the convenience of the witnesses or the ends of justice would be promoted. The second part of the chapter discusses change of venue based on impartial trial. Finally, the third part of the chapter discusses change of venue based on the ground that the convenience of witnesses or the ends of justice would be promoted.

California Points and Authorities is the only California publication to provide forms that combine concise arguments of the law with accurate summaries of supporting statutes, cases, and rules. Easily adaptable for use in trial and appellate briefs and researching jury instructions, the forms are designed to assist the attorney in arguing points of law at all stages of litigation.
