631.3.  (a) Notwithstanding any other law, when a party to the
litigation has deposited jury fees with the judge or clerk and that
party waives a jury or obtains a continuance of the trial, or the
case is settled, none of the deposit shall be refunded if the court
finds there has been insufficient time to notify the jurors that the
trial would not proceed at the time set. If the jury fees so
deposited are not refunded for any of these reasons, or if a refund
of jury fees deposited with the judge or clerk has not been
requested, in writing, by the depositing party within 20 business
days from the date on which the jury is waived or the action is
settled, dismissed, or a continuance thereof granted, the fees shall
be transmitted to the Controller for deposit into the Trial Court
Trust Fund.
   (b) All jury fees and mileage fees that may accrue by reason of a
juror serving on more than one case in the same day shall be
transmitted to the Controller for deposit into the Trial Court Trust
Fund. All jury fees that were deposited with the court in advance of
trial pursuant to Section 631 prior to January 1, 1999, and that
remain on deposit in cases that were settled, dismissed, or otherwise
disposed of, and three years have passed since the date the case was
settled, dismissed, or otherwise disposed of, shall be transmitted
to the Controller for deposit into the Trial Court Trust Fund.
   (c) The fee described in subdivision (b) of Section 631 shall be
nonrefundable and is not subject to this section.
