Minute Orders

Not sure where the name derives but most Courts issue “minute orders” after the hearing. This is a written document that states who was in Court (i.e. which attorneys) and what the Judge ordered. It is not the actual Court Order as that document would need to be signed by a Judge. A minute order is not signed by the Judge. However, if you are not in Court and want to know what the Judge ruled on a matter the minute order would be the thing to look for. In some counties, like Sacramento, they are available on-line after the case is heard (typically a few hours later). Le me know if you have questions about minute orders or any other probate or estate planning topic.  -John
