Tentative Rulings

Case Number: ****7435    Hearing Date: February 28, 2020    Dept: 56

SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA

FOR THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES - CENTRAL DISTRICT

CANDELARIO LORA,

Plaintiff,

vs.

VICENTE TAPIA, et al.,

Defendants.

CASE NO.: ****7435

ORDER RE:

DEFAULT JUDGMENT APPLICATION

Date: February 28, 2020

Time: 3:00 p.m.

Dept. 56

Plaintiff seeks default judgment against Defendants Angiloo Grecia (“Grecia”); Frank Hernandez (“Hernandez”); and Vicente Tapia (“Tapia”). Plaintiff’s default judgment application is valid in all respects except that while Plaintiff seeks attorneys’ fees pursuant to California Penal Code, Section 496(c)[1] which allows for “[a]ny person who has been injured by a violation of subdivision (a) or(b) may bring an action for three times the amount of actual damages, if any, sustained by the plaintiff, costs of suit, and reasonable attorney’s fees,” neither the declaration of Plaintiff nor the declaration of her counsel, Steven P. Scandura (“Scandura”), in support of Plaintiff’s default judgment application states whether such attorneys’ fees are allowed by a contractual provision or were calculated in accordance with the fee schedule in Local Rule 3.214. (Cal. Rules of Court, Rule 3.1800(a)(9).) Moreover, Scandura’s declaration does not set forth his hourly rate or time spent on this matter. The Court cannot ascertain whether such requested attorneys’ fees are reasonable.

Plaintiff’s default judgment application is DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.

Dated this 28th day of February 2020

Hon. Holly J. Fujie

Judge of the Superior Court


[1] Plaintiff’s complaint alleges the following causes of action: (1) fraud and theft; (2) treble damages pursuant to California Penal Code, Section 496(c); and (3) breach of fiduciary duty.
