I have a court date in November 2018 for jury trial, and a case management prior to that in October 2018.The court house let us know we have 7 court dates from last week (11/8/2017) to pay the jury fees ($150).So here is my questions:1) What happens if I pay the fees, but the Plaintiff does not pay?
2) Do I have any advantage if I pay, but they don't?
3) What happens if they pay and I don't.

CCP 631 requires the jury fee to be paid before the CMC or the party is deemed to have waived the right to a jury trial; please see:

https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displayText.xhtml?lawCode=CCP&division=&title=8.&part=2.&chapter=5.&article=

The court can waive the fee if justice demands (so the case can proceed to a jury trial) - please see:

Can you explain briefly what it means when a party waives trial by jury.

It means that the judge will hear the case, as opposed to a jury trial.
