1141.20. (a) An arbitration award shall be final unless a request
for a de novo trial or a request for dismissal in the form required
by the Judicial Council is filed within 60 days after the date the
arbitrator files the award with the court.
(b) Any party may elect to have a de novo trial, by court or jury,
both as to law and facts. Such trial shall be calendared, insofar as
possible, so that the trial shall be given the same place on the
active list as it had prior to arbitration, or shall receive civil
priority on the next setting calendar.
