I have a written notice: if I want to appeal my discharge from Los Angeles Superior Court, it has to be made pursuant to Government Code section 71655 and that pursuant to section 1094.6 of the California Code of Civil Procedure, I was given 90 days from the date of the notice -- which was September 12, 2012 -- to file a writ to challenge the decision of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles adopting the hearing officer's decision in the matter of my discharge. Well, all in one package, the letter says September 12, 2012, from the Executive Officer/Clerk; the letter from Court Counsel has the date of September 13, 2012; and it was mailed out on this date and received, by me, on Saturday, September 15, 2012. So, I have two questions. The 90 days, does it run from the date that Court Counsel has on her letter of notice to me? Because it was mailed from her office. Secondly, but most importantly, how do I find out where to file the writ in the Los Angeles Superior Court's system. They gave me no address or destination to appeal. The union, SEIU Local 721, dropped the ball and gave me no address either. Thank you. Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX, CSR #11XXXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX
