Yesterday the Governor signed AB 2230 addressing new trial motions:

Image result for more timeAB 2230, Berman. Civil actions.Existing law authorizes a court to determine a motion for a new trial or a motion to set aside and vacate a judgment within 60 days after the mailing of notice of entry of judgment by the clerk of the court, or 60 days after service on the moving party by any party of written notice of entry of judgment, or, if that notice has not been given, within 60 days after filing the first notice of intention to move for a new trial or to set aside and vacate a judgment.
