RANCHO FOODS, INC. v. BLUDSO’S BBQ, LLC, et al.
CASE NO.: VC057776
***CALENDAR MATTER #8***
Plaintiff/Judgment Creditor RANCHO FOODS, INC.’s Motion for Assignment Order is DENIED.
Moving Party to give notice.
This is a breach of contract action. Plaintiff Rancho Foods, Inc. and Defendant Bludso’s BBQ, LLC entered into a contract whereby Plaintiff would sell certain goods to Defendant on fourteen day net terms and Defendant would pay for the goods. Defendant Kevin Bludso personally guaranteed Bludso’s BBQ’s obligations under the agreement. From August 31, 2010 through October 12, 2010, Defendants ordered and received $25,410.91 worth of food. Defendants made partial payments but have failed to pay the remainder of the outstanding amount. Defendants also wrote a check for $7,000, which was returned by Defendants’ bank for non-sufficient funds.
On December 14, 2010, Plaintiff filed a complaint against Defendants Bludso’s BBQ, Kevin Bludso, and Erma Bludso, asserting the following causes of action:
1. Open Book Account
2. Account Stated
3. Reasonable Value
4. Goods Sold and Delivered
5. Breach of Contract
6. Breach of Guarantee
7. Violation of CCP Section 1719
On June 21, 2011, default judgment was entered against Defendants and in favor of Plaintiff in a total amount of $36,627.63.
On July 24, 2020, Plaintiff/Judgment Creditor Rancho Foods, Inc. (“Judgment Creditor”) filed this motion for assignment order.
Code of Civil Procedure section 708.510(a) states, in relevant part:
(a) Except as otherwise provided by law, upon application of the judgment creditor on noticed motion, the court may order the judgment debtor to assign to the judgment creditor or to a receiver appointed pursuant to Article 7 (commencing with Section 708.610) all or part of a right to payment due or to become due, whether or not the right is conditioned on future developments, including but not limited to the following types of payments:
(1) Wages dues from the federal government that are not subject to withholding under an earnings withholding order.
(5) Payments due from a patent or copyright.
(6) Insurance policy loan value.
CCP section 708.510(c), further provides:
[I]n determining whether to order an assignment or the amount of an assignment pursuant to subdivision (a), the court may take into consideration all relevant factors, including the following:
(1) The reasonable requirements of a judgment debtor who is a natural person and of persons supported in whole or in part by the judgment debtor.
(2) Payments the judgment debtor is required to make or that are deducted in satisfaction of other judgments and wage assignments, including earnings assignment orders for support.
(3) The amount remaining due on the money judgment.
(4) The amount being or to be received in satisfaction of the right to payment that may be assigned.
Judgment Creditor moves for a court order assigning twenty-five percent of all payments, monies, royalties, percentages, and commissions that are due or become due and owing from J. Howard II LLC dba Bludsos Bar & Que to Judgment Debtor Kevin Bludso (“Judgment Debtor”).
Judgment Creditor has failed to submit evidence demonstrating Judgment Debtor is receiving commissions from J. Howard LLC. Judge Creditor relies on counsel’s declaration. As the declaration is unsigned, it is inadmissible. Even if it were admissible, counsel’s declaration merely states, on information and belief, that Judgment Debtor receives money from J. Howard LLC dba Bludsos Bar &
Que. (Blanda Decl., ¶ 3.) This is insufficient to establish that Judgment Debtor is indeed receiving commission from J. Howard LLC. The restaurant’s webpage showing Judgment Debtor’s connection with Bludsos Bar & Que, the liquor license showing J. Howard LLC owns Bludsos Bar & Que, and the California Secretary of State printout showing J. Howard is a valid California Limited Liability Company are also insufficient to demonstrate Judgment Debtor is receiving commissions from J. Howard LLC.
Accordingly, the motion is denied.
