What's Good With Schurmer and Wood Podcast.

Nov 11, 2020

We would be remiss not to talk about the tremendous impact COVID-19 has had on civil jury trials in the State of California. In this episode, attorneys Earl Schurmer and Lauren Wood of the Law Offices of Schurmer and Wood provide a general update on the status of the courts, talk about the current delays in getting previously scheduled trials rescheduled again, and the effect the trial delays will have on both current and future cases. They also discuss the inherent issues associated with even having jury trials during a pandemic, how the lack of a scheduled trial date has produced some pushback from defense counsel on moving cases forward, and how general litigation strategies have changed as a result.
