Tentative Rulings

Case Number: ****8501    Hearing Date: April 23, 2021    Dept: 29

Burks  vs.  Luna, et. al.

TENTATIVE RULING: 

Defendants Ricardo Arriaga and Nelson Lopez’s Motion to Vacate Entry of Default is GRANTED.

ANALYSIS:

Plaintiff Derric Burks (“Plaintiff”) filed the instant action against Ricardo Arriaga and Nelson Lopez (“Defendants”) on January 30, 2017. Following Defendants’ failure to file a responsive pleading, the Court entered their default on September 13, 2020. 

Defendants filed the instant Motion to Vacate Entry of Default on December 14, 2020. To date, no opposition has been filed. 

Discussion

Defendants move for relief from the default and default judgment pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure, section 473, subdivision (b) and (d). 

Code of Civil Procedure section 473, subdivision (b)

Under this statute, an application for relief must be made no more than six months after entry of the order from which relief is sought, and must be accompanied by an affidavit of fault attesting to the mistake, inadvertence, surprise or neglect of the moving party or its attorney. (Code Civ. Proc., ; 473, subd. (b); English v. IKON Business Solutions (2001) 94 Cal.App.4th 130, 143.) The moving party must also attach a copy of the proposed responsive pleading. (Code Civ. Proc., ; 473, subd. (b).) The motion is brought pursuant to discretionary relief prong of section 473, subdivision (b) for Defendants’ own mistake, inadvertence, surprise or neglect. 

The Court finds relief is timely sought under the statute just two months after entry of default. The Motion is supported by an affidavit attesting to Defendants’ mistake, inadvertence, surprise or neglect in failing to respond to the Complaint as it was not received or personally served on Defendants. A copy of Defendants’ proposed Answer is attached. 

Therefore, relief from the entry of default and default judgment under of Civil Procedure section 473, subdivision (b) is granted. 

As the court grants relief on this basis, it does not address the remaining grounds for relief.Conclusion

Defendants Ricardo Arriaga and Nelson Lopez’s Motion to Vacate Entry of Default is GRANTED.  Defendants' Answer is deemed filed on the date of this order.  As the Answer was filed within a compendium of exhibits, Defendants are ordered to file a single answer today's date.

TRIAL SETTING CONFERENCE is set for 05/19/2021 at 8:30 a.m. in Dept. 29 of the Spring Street Courthouse.

Moving party to give notice.
