TENTATIVE ORDER

Defendant Shaul’s demurrer to Plaintiff’s Second Amended Complaint is taken OFF-CALENDAR.

The court is in receipt of Attorney McKechnie’s Declaration, notifying the court that the parties have stipulated to allow Plaintiff to file a Third Amended Complaint to address the deficiencies in the Second Amended Complaint. While the court’s previous ruling did not require a declaration if the parties were able to resolve the issues, the court appreciates counsel’s advance notice.

CASE NO.: VC066597

HEARING: 9/19/19

JUDGE: MARGARET M. BERNAL

TENTATIVE ORDER

Defendant Shaul’s demurrer to Plaintiff’s Second Amended Complaint is CONTINUED to Tuesday, 12/17/19 at 1:30 p.m. in Dept. SE-C. 

Defendant is ORDERED to comply with CCP §§ 430.41 and 433.5. If, after complying with CCP § 430.41, court intervention is needed, the parties may appear and argue the merits on the continued hearing date. If the parties are unable to informally resolve the issues raised in the instant demurrer, then the Demurring Defendant must submit a signed declaration indicating such efforts pursuant to CCP §430.41. The declaration must be filed no later than 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, 12/10/19. (NO FAX FILING.) 

CCP §§ 430.41(a) states that, before filing a demurrer, the demurring or moving party must engage in a specified meet and confer process with the party who filed the pleading at issue for the purpose of determining whether an agreement can be reached as to the filing of an amended pleading that would resolve the objections to be raised in the demurrer/motion to strike. The demurring or moving party “shall meet and confer in person or by telephone with the party who filed the pleading that is subject to demurrer for the purpose of determining whether an agreement can be reached that resolves the objections to be raised… If an amended [pleading] is filed, the responding party shall meet and confer again with the party who filed the amended pleading before a demurrer to the amended pleading.” (CCP §§430.41(a).) A declaration setting forth such meet and confer efforts must accompany the demurrer. (CCP §§ 430.41(a)(3).) 

The Court finds that the Defendant failed to satisfy his meet and confer obligations pursuant to CCP 430.41. Attorney Mouzis declares that he “directed a letter” to Plaintiff’s counsel, which was not an attempt at meeting and conferring “in person or by telephone.” The court finds that demurring party failed to engage in meaningful meet and confer efforts. The provisions of the Code are mandatory; compliance is not optional
