Tentative Rulings

Case Number: 20STLC08887    Hearing Date: February 22, 2021    Dept: 26

Anytime Rent a Car, Inc. v. Radford, et al.

CONSOLIDATION

(Code Civ. Proc., § 1048(a))

TENTATIVE RULING:

Plaintiff Anytime Rent a Car, Inc. dba Anytime Auto Group’s Motion to Consolidate is DENIED

ANALYSIS:

On October 20, 2020, Plaintiff Anytime Rent a Car, Inc. dba Anytime Auto Group (“Plaintiff”) filed the instant action for breach of contract, common counts and declaratory relief against Defendant Larry Radford (“Defendant”). On November 16, 2020, Plaintiff filed a Notice of Related Case with respect to Radford v. Anytime Rent a Car, Inc., LASC Case No. 20STLC08887 (“the Small Claims action”). The Small Claims action was filed by Defendant against Plaintiff on October 7, 2020 in the Small Claims Department and assigned to the Long Beach Courthouse. Plaintiff filed a Notice of Related Case in the Small Claims action with respect to this action on December 14, 2020.

Plaintiff filed the instant Motion to Consolidate in the current action on January 19, 2021. To date, no opposition has been filed.

Discussion

A Small Claims defendant who seeks to bring a cross-claim in excess of the jurisdictional limit must follow the procedure set forth at Code of Civil Procedure section 116.390. Plaintiff has not demonstrated compliance with the statutory requirements of Code of Civil Procedure section 116.390. Nor has Plaintiff otherwise filed proof of service of the Summons and Complaint on Defendant in this action. Therefore, the Court does not have personal jurisdiction over Defendant at this time. (Borsuk v. Appellate Division of Superior Court (2015) 242 Cal.App.4th 607, 612 [“service of summons is not effective and the court does not acquire jurisdiction of the party unless the statutory requirements for service of summons are met.”].)

Conclusion

Plaintiff Anytime Rent a Car, Inc. dba Anytime Auto Group’s Motion to Consolidate is DENIED.

Court clerk to give notice.
