Counting the minutes… Calculating the deadline for requesting a statement of decision, Daily Journal (June 10, 2019)

Bodokh (2019) 35 Cal.App.5th 761 is a cautionary tale for any proceeding that hovers around the eight-hour mark.  Under Code of Civil Procedure section 632, if a trial concludes “within one calendar day or in less than eight hours over more than one day,” then a statement of decision must be made before the court deems the matter deemed for submission.
