District Judge Haywood S. Gilliam, Jr.

Oakland Courthouse, Courtroom 2 – 4th Floor

At the current time most hearings will be held remotely. Remote court hearings may be held by telephone conference or by Zoom. Please refer to the case docket or the judge’s calendar to determine which you should use.
 

If your hearing is scheduled as a telephone conference, you should follow the Telephonic Hearing Instructions below. If your hearing is scheduled as a Zoom Webinar (public hearing) or Zoom Meeting (non-public hearing), you should follow the Zoom Hearing Instructions below.  

Telephonic Hearing Instructions

If the hearing is scheduled as a telephone conference, counsel and members of the press and public will use the following dial-in information to access the hearing:

Dial In: 888-808-6929
Access Code: 6064255

The parties shall dial in to the hearing at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled appearance time to check in with the Courtroom Deputy.

Members of the press and public may listen in on public hearings held by teleconference, but must dial in at least 5 minutes before the scheduled hearing start time, and must keep their phones muted throughout the hearing.

Joining a Zoom Webinar by Phone or Other Connection

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you are a case participant (attorney, party, witness, or other person who will actively participate in the hearing), it is strongly recommended that you join Zoom using the Zoom application rather than by a telephone connection.  If you must appear by telephone, the numbers posted for each judge are for the public and are listen-only, so you will need to contact the Courtroom Deputy (CRD) at least one business day before the hearing to request a Zoom invitation (which will be sent via email) in order to join the hearing as a case participant.

Chambers Copy Requirements

The processing of unnecessary chambers copies wastes resources and burdens the court.  Pursuant to Civil Local Rule 5-1(d)(7), chambers copies should not be submitted unless required by the assigned judge’s standing order or specifically requested by the assigned judge.

Judges’ standing orders may include additional requirements and may differ from the local rules in other particulars.  If they are not in agreement, a judge’s standing order supersedes the local rules.

The pertinent parts of Judge Gilliam’s standing orders are set forth below:

Civil Standing Order

Paper courtesy copies shall not be submitted unless the Court requests them. The Court may at times order the parties to provide digital courtesy copies of motions filings, including supporting documents, on portable media (e.g., a CD or flash drive).

Criminal Standing Order

Counsel shall submit two courtesy copies of all filings totaling 10 pages or more with the Court in Oakland.

All courtesy copies must be double-sided, three-hole punched at the left margin, and marked with the ECF stamp (case number, document number, date, and page number) on the top of each page. These printed copies shall be marked “Chambers Copy – Do Not File” and shall be in an envelope clearly labeled with Judge Gilliam’s name and the case number. Exhibits to motions or declarations shall be side-tabbed and numbered or lettered. If the documents filed exceed 50 pages including exhibits, the filing party shall submit courtesy copies in three-ring binders.

Criminal Pretrial and Trial Standing Order

Counsel shall submit two courtesy copies of all filings.

All courtesy copies must be double-sided, three-hole punched at the left margin, and marked with the ECF stamp (case number, document number, date, and page number) on the top of each page. These printed copies shall be marked “Chambers Copy – Do Not File” and shall be in an envelope clearly labeled with Judge Gilliam’s name and the case number. Exhibits to motions or declarations shall be side-tabbed and numbered or lettered. If the documents filed exceed 50 pages including exhibits, the filing party shall submit courtesy copies in three ring binders.
