Filing a Claim Against a Government Entity in California (Representative of Other Jurisdictions)
A hearing notification is issued by the government entity. The order and copies are filed with the entity, the court clerk and the Board of Supervisors. Upon receipt of the signed order by the judge, there is a 30 day period to file the complaint.
A claim is filed using forms obtained from the government entity. (If action is late due to the client failing to seek representation, there may be procedures to file a late claim, and additional documentary requirements.)
The lawsuit must be filed within six months, or action will be barred permanently. (Local statutes should be checked to verify requirements and avoid jeopardizing the claim.)
45 days after filing the claim, if there has been no response the claim is considered rejected.
A claim must be filed within 100 days of the incident
