Tentative Rulings

Case Number: 19STLC10017    Hearing Date: September 09, 2020    Dept: 26

MOTION TO INTERVENE

(CCP § 387)

TENTATIVE RULING:

Proposed Intervenor Loya Casualty Insurance Company’s Motion for Leave to Intervene is GRANTED. RESPONSIVE PLEADING TO COMPLAINT TO BE FILED AND SERVED WITHIN 20 DAYS.

ANALYSIS:

On October 29, 2019, Plaintiff Albert Orozco (“Plaintiff”) filed the instant action for automobile

subrogation against Defendant Karen I. Aguilar (“Defendant”). Plaintiff filed a proof of service of the Summons and Complaint demonstrating that Defendant was sub-served in this action effective January 2, 2020. To date, no responsive pleading has been filed to the Complaint. On March 17, 2020, non-party Loya Casualty Insurance Company (“Loya Casualty”) served the instant Motion to Intervene. To date, no opposition has been filed.

Discussion

The right to intervene is set forth at Code of Civil Procedure section 387. Intervention is allowed when “[t]he person seeking intervention claims an interest relating to the property or transaction that is the subject of the action and that person is so situated that the disposition of the action may impair or impede that person's ability to protect that interest, unless that person's interest is adequately represented by one or more of the existing parties.” (Code Civ. Proc., § 387, subd. (d)(1)(B).) Whether the petitioner has an interest in the matter in litigation is a question of fact that must be determined by the court before leave to file is granted. (Muller v. Robinson (1959) 174 Cal.App.2d 511, 515; In re Yokohama Special Bank (1948) 86 Cal.App.2d 545.) The burden rests on the one seeking to intervene to show that this is a proper case for intervention. (Id. at 515.)

Loya Casualty demonstrates it was Defendant’s insurer at the time of the accident that gives rise to this action. (Motion, Oakes Decl., ¶3 and Exh. 3.) Loya Casualty further presents evidence that it has been unable to communicate with Defendant to secure her participation in this action. (Motion, Oakes Decl., ¶¶4-11.) It is undisputed that Defendant’s insurer would have an interest in this action as it would be required to satisfy any judgment rendered against Defendant. (See Cal. Ins. Code § 11580, subd. (b)(2); Reliance Ins. Co. v. Superior Court (2000) 84 Cal.App.4th 383, 386.) Nor would intervention enlarge the issues in this action, as the insurer would simply assert defenses on Defendants’ behalf. (Reliance Ins. Co., supra at 386 (citing Truck Ins. Exch. v. Superior Court (1997) 60 Cal.App.4th 342, 346).)

Based on the foregoing, Proposed Intervenor Loya Casualty Insurance Company’s Motion for Leave to Intervene is GRANTED. RESPONSIVE PLEADING TO COMPLAINT TO BE FILED AND SERVED WITHIN 20 DAYS.

Orozco v. Aguilar, et al.

MOTION TO INTERVENE

(CCP § 387)

TENTATIVE RULING:

Proposed Intervenor Loya Casualty Insurance Company’s Motion for Leave to Intervene is DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.

ANALYSIS:

On October 29, 2019, Plaintiff Albert Orozco (“Plaintiff”) filed the instant action for automobile subrogation against Defendant Karen I. Aguilar (“Defendant”). Plaintiff filed a proof of service of the Summons and Complaint demonstrating that Defendant was sub-served in this action effective January 2, 2020. To date, no responsive pleading has been filed to the Complaint. On March 10, 2020, non-party Loya Casualty Insurance Company (“Loya Casualty”) filed the instant Motion to Intervene. To date, no opposition has been filed.

Discussion

The right to intervene is set forth at Code of Civil Procedure section 387. Intervention is allowed when “[t]he person seeking intervention claims an interest relating to the property or transaction that is the subject of the action and that person is so situated that the disposition of the action may impair or impede that person's ability to protect that interest, unless that person's interest is adequately represented by one or more of the existing parties.” (Code Civ. Proc., § 387, subd. (d)(1)(B).) Whether the petitioner has an interest in the matter in litigation is a question of fact that must be determined by the court before leave to file is granted. (Muller v. Robinson (1959) 174 Cal.App.2d 511, 515; In re Yokohama Special Bank (1948) 86 Cal.App.2d 545.) The burden rests on the one seeking to intervene to show that this is a proper case for intervention. (Id. at 515.)

Loya Casualty contends it was Defendant’s insurer at the time of the accident that gives rise to this action. However, it submits no admissible evidence of this fact. (Motion, Oakes Decl., ¶¶1-3.) The only evidence in support of the Motion is the declaration of Loya Casualty’s attorney, who offers no facts or evidence in support of his contention. (Ibid.) The declaration contains only a bare statement of personal knowledge regarding the facts in the declaration. (Id. at ¶1.) “Where the facts stated do not themselves show it, such bare statement of the affiant has no redeeming value and should be ignored.” (Snider v. Snider (1962) 200 Cal.App.2d 741, 754.) No declaration is submitted by a sworn agent of Loya Casualty. The Court, therefore, cannot make a finding that Loya Casualty was Defendant’s insurer.

Loya Casualty does present evidence that it has been unable to communicate with Defendant to secure her participation in this action. (Motion, Oakes Decl., ¶¶3-9.) It is undisputed that Defendant’s insurer would have an interest in this action as it would be required to satisfy any judgment rendered against Defendant. (See Cal. Ins. Code § 11580, subd. (b)(2); Reliance Ins. Co. v. Superior Court (2000) 84 Cal.App.4th 383, 386.) Nor would intervention enlarge the issues in this action, as the insurer would simply assert defenses on Defendants’ behalf. (Reliance Ins. Co., supra at 386 (citing Truck Ins. Exch. v. Superior Court (1997) 60 Cal.App.4th 342, 346).)

Based on the foregoing, Proposed Intervenor Loya Casualty Insurance Company’s Motion for Leave to Intervene is DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
