Summary

Summary

The Judicial Branch Budget Committee recommends amending rule 3.670 of the California Rules of Court to increase the fee to appear by telephone in civil cases from $86 to $94, effective January 1, 2019. The new fee would apply to the balance of the four-year term of the master agreement for telephone appearance services that was recently entered into with CourtCall, LLC. The fee increase reflects the estimated increase in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers for the term of the agreement.
