Litigation By The Numbers®

The Essential California Civil Litigation Handbook

(Revised July 2023)

There’s a rule for everything in California State Court litigation. The ones you have to follow to prepare and timely file and serve your document could be in the Code of Civil Procedure, the California Rules of Court, or, as is often the case, both! There are mandatory court forms for various procedures as well. And they change often!

Litigation By The Numbers® (“LBTN”) is an up-to-date California civil litigation practice guide which brings those codes, rules, and forms together in one place, and explains the procedures step-by-step. LBTN is relied on throughout California by attorneys and their entire staff. If you’re self-represented, it will be your “bible.”

California Civil Litigation and Discovery

California Civil Litigation and Discovery (“CCLD”), updated as of January 2022 (11th Edition), takes a substantive approach to litigation, e.g., what the pleadings should say (naming parties, jurisdiction, stating elements of causes of action), rather than what they look like and how they are filed and served; discovery strategies and drafting hints (scope of discovery, discovery plans, drafting written discovery, objections, and responses) rather than format, limits, and deadlines, etc.
