Request for Judicial Notice

Templates and Forms

Free form. Use a Request for Judicial Notice when you need a judge to rule a fact or a law to be true. When a judge takes judicial notice of something it no longer needs to be formally proven and it cannot be contested. This is frequently used to admit court records from related cases; laws, regulations, municipal ordinances, and legislative history; or indisputable facts such as the distance between two places, the date of a national election, or the dictionary definition of a word.


These forms have been adapted from California statutes and highly-regarded practice guides to fit common situations. The law librarians have attempted to provide instructions, definitions, and examples to assist non-lawyers in understanding the purpose of the form, and what type of information to include when filling it out.

However, only lawyers (attorneys) can advise you of the correct forms for your particular situation, and what specific information to include on your forms.

It is your responsibility to determine whether this form is suited to your needs. If you have questions about what form to use, or how to fill them out, visit your local law library to do your own legal research, or consult a lawyer.
