We have received word that the Superior Court of California, County of Alameda is in the process of closing the Alameda County Court Clerk’s office in Alameda.  Those staff will be reassigned to both RCD and Hayward.  In its place, they are moving the Records Department (which is currently in the basement between RCD and the Admin Building) out to Alameda.

The plan is to have a drop box for Civil filings available at Alameda until December 31, to ease the transition.  The effective date will, if all goes to plan, be October 30, 2017.  After October 3oth, there will no longer be clerks in Alameda to accept filings, just the drop box.
