Tentative Rulings

Case Number: ****5738    Hearing Date: February 02, 2021    Dept: 28

Request for Default Judgment

Having considered all documents submitted in support of a default judgment, the Court rules as follows.

BACKGROUND

On June 20, 2017, Plaintiff Annie Cruse (“Cruse” or “Plaintiff”) filed a complaint against Arturo Vasquez-Lopez, Yolanda Santizo Gramajo, and Katerina Tana for motor vehicle negligence based on incidents that occurred on July 1, 2015, July 20, 2015, and November 15, 2015.

On August 29, 2017, Defendant/Cross-Complainant Katerina Tana (“Tana”) filed a cross-complaint against Arturo Vasquez-Lopez and Yolanda Santizo Gramajo (“Gramajo”) for equitable indemnification and contribution, declaratory relief, and appointment of fault.

On September 20, 2017, Cruse filed a default application against Gramajo. Default was entered on the same date.

On February 14, 2018, Defendant/Cross-Complainant Arturo Vasquez-Lopez filed a cross-complaint against Gramajo and Tana for equitable indemnity, comparative indemnity, and declaratory relief.

On April 26, 2019, Tana dismissed her cross-complaint without prejudice.

On June 13, 2020, Cruse dismissed her complaint against Tana with prejudice.

On June 20, 2020, the Court ordered Defendant/Cross-Complainant Arturo Vasquez-Lopez’s cross-complaint against Tana, Gramajo, and Roes 1 through 10 dismissed without prejudice.

On September 10, 2020, Plaintiff orally dismissed Defendant Arturo Vasquez-Lopez from the Complaint.

Order to Show Cause Re: Dismissal for Failure to File Default Judgment Pursuant to CRC 3.740 as to Defendant, Yolanda Santizo Gramajo is scheduled for September 10, 2020.

PARTY’S REQUEST

Plaintiff requests the Court to enter a default judgment against Defendant Yolanda Santizo Gramajo and award Plaintiff $595,262.00

DISCUSSION

The Court finds the application for default judgment filed on August 7, 2020 denied.

There are a number of issues with the packet. Plaintiff has not filed the required CIV-100 Form. There are no authentications for submitted exhibits. Plaintiff has not put Defendant Yolanda Santizo Gramajo on notice of the amount sought in the complaint. Plaintiff did not file a statement of damages or proof of service of such. Plaintiff has not dismissed Does 1 through 30.

Accordingly, Plaintiff’s application for entry of default judgment is denied.

CONCLUSION

The application for default judgment filed on August 7, 2020 is DENIED.

Plaintiff is ordered to give notice of this ruling.

The parties are directed to the header of this tentative ruling for further instructions.
