Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC676117    Hearing Date: November 15, 2019    Dept: 58

Judge John P. Doyle

Department 58


Hearing Date: November 15, 2019

Case Name: BIG3 Basketball, LLC v. Champions League, Inc., et al.

Case No.: BC676117

Motion: Motion to Set Aside Default/Default Judgment

Moving Party: Defendant Carl George

Responding Party: Unopposed


Tentative Ruling: The Motion to Set Aside Default/Default Judgment is denied.


On August 29, 2019, Defendant Carl George filed a Motion to Set Aside the Default and Default Judgment entered against him in this action. The Motion seeks relief pursuant to Code Civ. Proc §§ 473(b), 473(d), 473.5.

  1. Service of Motion

    The proof of service for the Motion is invalid because it demonstrates that a party to the action—Defendant George—attempted service by mail. (Code Civ. Proc. § 1013a.) This alone requires denial of the Motion.

  2. Discretionary Relief per Code Civ. Proc. § 473(b)

    Defendant’s default was entered on September 12, 2018,[1] and default judgment was entered against him on April 2, 2019.

    Discretionary relief under Code Civ. Proc. § 473(b) must be sought within six months of entry of default, and mandatory relief must be sought within six months of entry of default judgment. (Sugasawara v. Newland (1994) 27 Cal. App. 4th 294, 297.) This deadline is jurisdictional (Manson, Iver & York v. Black (2009) 176 Cal. App. 4th 36, 42), and cannot be extended by Code Civ. Proc. § 1013 (see Camper v. Workers' Comp. Appeals Bd. (1992) 3 Cal. 4th 679, 686.) Six-months is the equivalent of 182 days. (Gov. Code § 6803; Davis v. Thayer (1980) 113 Cal.App.3d 892, 903.) Further, “[t]he time in which any act provided by law is to be done is computed by excluding the first day, and including the last, unless the last day is a holiday, and then it is also excluded.” (Code Civ. Proc. § 12.)

    The Motion—to the extent seeking discretionary relief under Code Civ. Proc. § 473(b)—is untimely because it was filed more than six months after entry of Defendant’s September 12, 2018, default.

    (c) Intrinsic Fraud

    Defendant argues his default/default judgment should be set aside due to intrinsic fraud. That is, Defendant argues the allegations in the Complaint and the evidence filed by Plaintiff were false.

    However, to the extent relief is sought under Code Civ. Proc. § 473(b), such request is, as explained above, untimely.

    (d) Faulty Service/Extrinsic Fraud

    Defendant argues that he had no notice of this action or the proceedings therein until after his default.

    Defendant’s contention that he was not served with the Complaint or summons is without merit because Defendant made an appearance by filing an Answer. Thus, relief under Code Civ. Proc. § 473.5 is inapplicable.

    As to the contention that Defendant received no notice of the subsequent proceedings in this action, there is no admissible evidence in support of this because Plaintiff’s declaration is improperly signed under penalty of perjury under Minnesota law. To be valid, a declaration must be executed under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of California. (Code Civ. Proc. § 2015.5.)

    The Motion to Set Aside Default/Default Judgment is denied.
