Civil Procedure: Technical Corrections - Study J-1320-1

    The Commission has been studying whether any technical changes should be made to civil procedure following trial court unification. In 2001, the Commission recommended the following changes:

(1) The jurisdictional classification of a proceeding to release a mechanic's lien should be clarified (Civ. Code § 3154; Code Civ. Proc. § 86).

(2) The jurisdictional classification of a petition for relief from claim-filing requirements of the Tort Claims Act should be clarified (Gov't Code § 946.6).

(3) The codes should be revised to reflect that trial courts no longer maintain a record denominated a "docket" in civil cases.

(4) A provision on statutory interpretation should be added to negate any implied limitation on court authority in limited and unlimited civil cases (Proposed Code Civ. Proc. § 89).

    The Commission's recommendation was enacted by the Legislature. See below.
