A bulletin board in the main lobby has the calendar for each courtroom, listing what cases will be heard and in which Department.
A judge and his or her staff are called a "Department." So a case will be assigned, for example, to Dept. 2 ; or Dept. 61. If you need help, feel free to ask someone for assistance.
