Tentative Rulings

Case Number: 19STLC05784    Hearing Date: February 06, 2020    Dept: 25

TENTATIVE RULING:

Plaintiff High Integrity Rack & Shelving, LLC’s Motion to Strike is CONTINUED TO APRIL 14, 2020 AT 10:30 A.M in DEPT. 25, SPRING STREET COURTHOUSE.

At least 16 court days prior to the new hearing date, Plaintiff is to file a declaration demonstrating compliance with the meet and confer requirement. Failure to comply with the Court’s order may result in the Motion to Strike being placed off calendar or denied.

I. Background

On June 18, 2019, Plaintiff High Integrity Rack & Shelving, LLC (“Plaintiff”) filed a complaint for breach of contract and common counts against Defendant Taomore Supply Chain Ltd. (“Defendant”). On August 21, 2019, Defendant filed an Answer, which appears to have been filed by one of its members, in pro per.

On September 27, 2019, Plaintiff filed the instant Motion to Strike Defendant’s Answer to Complaint (the “Motion”). To date, no opposition or reply briefs have been filed.

II. Legal Standard & Discussion

Plaintiff requests that the Court strike Defendant’s Answer because it appears it was not filed by an attorney as required for entities. (Mot., p. 8-9.)

  1. Failure to Meet and Confer

Code of Civil Procedure section 435.5 provides that, “[b]efore filing a motion to strike pursuant to this chapter, the moving party shall meet and confer in person or by telephone with the party who filed the pleading that is subject to the motion to strike for purposes of determining if an agreement can be reached that resolves the objections to be raised in the motion to strike.” (Code Civ. Proc., § 435.5, subd. (a).) (Italics added.)

Here, Plaintiff’s Motion is not accompanied by a declaration stating the parties met and conferred in person or by telephone, or that there was an attempt to do so. Thus, Plaintiff is ordered to meet and confer with Defendant in accordance with Code of Civil Procedure section 435.5 and to file a supplemental declaration attesting to such efforts.

III. Conclusion & Order

For the foregoing reasons, Plaintiff High Integrity Rack & Shelving, LLC’s Motion to Strike is CONTINUED TO APRIL 14, 2020, AT 10:30 A.M. in DEPT. 25, SRING STREET COURTHOUSE.

At least 16 court days prior to the new hearing date, Plaintiff is to file a declaration demonstrating compliance with the meet and confer requirement. Failure to comply with the Court’s order may result in the Motion to Strike being placed off calendar or denied.

Moving party is ordered to give notice.
