Jun. 22, 2022 – K.R. v. Superior Court (1st Dist., Div. 3, A164821)

Persons subject to LPS conservatorships must be personally advised of their trial rights. If no trial demand has been made, the court must hold a “hearing” on the conservatorship petition, and the proposed conservatee then has five days to demand a trial. WIC 5350 draws a distinction between a “hearing” and a “trial” and offers no option for a bench trial absent a demand by the proposed conservatee.
