    1. Residential unlawful detainer actions.

Starting January 1, 2024, Judge Reyes Bordeaux requires judge's copies in accordance with the Central Guide, Section 2-02.  Please see the “Instructions/ Procedures” tab for Judge Reyes Bordeaux’s updated policy on the service of Judge's Copies.


  1. Judge Reyes Bordeaux requires parties to follow all applicable noticing requirements.
  2. Under Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9007, Judge Reyes Bordeaux requires that a moving party or other party noticing a ZoomGov hearing do the following: 
    1. file and serve a completed Supplemental Notice of Hearing to Be Held Remotely Using ZoomGov Audio and Video ("Supplemental Notice"), at the same time the principal notice of such hearing is to be filed and served,  
    2. include ZoomGov audio and video information from the Supplemental Notice into the principal notice.

Supplemental Notice form for an Adversary Proceeding  Click here 

The unique ZoomGov information, which is necessary to complete the Supplemental Notice, is posted on the first page of Judge Reyes Bordeaux’s publicly posted hearing calendar.

STEP 4 – Check for Tentative Rulings: It is your responsibility to check for Tentative Rulings. Note: Some browsers do not automatically refresh (so you will not see the latest Tentative Rulings). Pressing “Ctrl-F5” has been helpful to some in addressing this issue.

When to check for Tentative Rulings. Tentative Rulings are available approximately 24 hours before the scheduled time of the hearing (not counting weekends/holidays).  The court will post Tentative Rulings here. However, if nothing is posted, you should continue checking periodically. 

Exceptions: No Tentative Rulings are posted for (a) the chapter 13 confirmation calendar and (b) the Chapter 13 Trustee’s motion calendar (generally motions to dismiss). 

STEP 5 – Submit Proposed Orders (after the hearing):  The prevailing party should lodge a proposed order (unless otherwise instructed by the Court) after the hearing.
