Request a Jury Trial - Post Fees

The Constitution of California guarantees litigants the right to a jury trial in civil actions. (Cal. Const. Art. I, § 16.) That right is limited, however, to actions “at law,” as distinguished from proceedings “in equity,” and is dependent upon a timely demand. (C & K Engineering Contractors v. Amber Steel Co., Inc. (1978) 23 Cal.3d 1, 8.)

Legal Standard

In determining whether an action is one triable by a jury at common law, the court looks to “the nature of the rights involved and the facts of the particular case–the gist of the action.” (Wisden v. Super. Ct. (2004) 124 Cal.App.4th 750, 755, 21 Cal.Rptr.3d 523; C & K Engineering, supra, at p. 9, 151 Cal.Rptr. 323, 587 P.2d 1136.) A jury trial must be granted where the gist of the action is legal; but “if the action is essentially one in equity and the relief sought ‘depends upon the application of equitable doctrines,’ the parties are not entitled to a jury trial.” (C & K Engineering, supra, at p. 9, 151 Cal.Rptr. 323, 587 P.2d 1136.)

Procedure

Even if a party timely demands a jury trial, the failure to post jury fees constitutes a waiver of that right. (Code of Civ. Proc., § 631(f)(5)&(6).) A party must post jury fees on or before the initial case management conference. (Code of Civ. Proc., § 631(c).) If no case management conference is scheduled, then the fees are due no later than 365 calendar days after the filing of the initial complaint. (Code of Civ. Proc., § 631(c)(2).) If the party requesting a jury has not appeared before the initial case management conference, then jury fees are due at least 25 calendar days before the initial trial date. (Code of Civ. Proc., § 631(c)(4).)

Relief from Waiver of Jury

It is well established that the Court has the discretion to grant relief from waiver of jury. (Code of Civ. Proc., § 631(g).) In exercising that discretion, courts are mindful of the requirement “to resolve doubts in interpreting the waiver provisions of section 631 in favor of a litigant's right to jury trial.” (Tesoro del Valle Master Homeowners Ass'n v. Griffin (2011) 200 Cal.App.4th 619, 638; Bishop v. Anderson (1980) 101 Cal.App.3d 821, 823.) Accordingly, where the right to jury is threatened, the crucial focus is whether any prejudice will be suffered by any party or the court if a motion for relief from waiver is granted; a trial court abuses its discretion as a matter of law when relief has been denied where there has been no prejudice to the other party or to the court from an inadvertent waiver. (Id.)
