The Judicial Council’s COVID-19 Emergency Rule 10a extended the time for bringing a case to trial by six months (i.e., a total of 5 years and 6 months) for actions filed before April 6, 2020.  This was such an action.  However, plaintiff didn’t get it to trial until 5 years and 7 months after the action was filed.  Held, the action was properly dismissed under CCP 583.310.  Since the Judicial Council’s rule was not a statute and because it extended to period for bringing cases to trial but didn’t toll the running of the clock, plaintiff could not invoke CCP 583.350 which precludes dismissal if the action is brought to trial within 6 months after the end of a period during which the requirement of bringing a case to trial is tolled or otherwise extended by statute.
