Lopez  vs.  West Coast Public Works

Motion for Leave to File Cross-Complaint by Defendants, West Coast Public Works and Agapito Ayala, is GRANTED.  (Code Civil Procedure 428.50).  Defendants are ordered to file their cross-complaint against Damaris Abigail Lopez within 10 days of the date of this order and to serve the summons and cross-complaint forthwith.  Because the cross-complaint arises out of the same accident as this action, the Court finds that it is in the interests of justice to grant this motion.

Moving party is ordered to give notice.  

   

NOTE:  PARTIES MUST APPEAR THIS DATE AS A TRIAL SETTING CONFERENCE IS ALSO SET ON CALENDAR FOR THIS DATE. 

In order to comply with social distancing regulations, all parties are strongly encouraged to appear via video or telephonic services offered by the Court, through LACourtConnect.

Case Number: BC676326    Hearing Date: March 16, 2020    Dept: 29

Lopez et al v. West Coast Public Works et al.

Motion for Leave to File a Cross-Complaint by Defendants West Coast Public Works and Agapito Ayala is TAKEN OFF CALENDAR. Defendants may refile their motion after correcting the issues identified below.

It is not clear from the moving papers who the proposed cross-defendants are. The notice of motion states that Defendants seek leave to file a cross-complaint against non-party Damaris Abigail Lopez, who is the insured on the vehicle in question. Consistent with that statement, the caption on the proposed cross-complaint states that the proposed cross-defendant is “Damaris Abiggal (sic) Lopez and Roes 1-50.”

But the first sentence of the proposed cross-complaint states that Defendants bring the cross-complaint against Javier Lopez in addition to Damaris Lopez and Roes 1-50. In opposing the motion, Plaintiffs state that Plaintiff Javier Lopez is one of the proposed cross-defendants and Defendants do not correct that statement in the reply brief.

Different standards apply to compulsory cross-complaints by defendants against a plaintiff in the action and permissive cross-complaints against third parties. It is not clear to the Court whether Defendants seek to file a cross-complaint against Javier Lopez in addition to Damaris Lopez. The Court takes this motion off calendar so that Defendants refile after either (1) correcting the proposed cross-complaint to remove the reference to cross-defendant Javier Lopez in the first sentence; or (2) correcting the notice of motion, memorandum of points and authorities and caption of the proposed cross-complaint to make clear that Javier Lopez is one of the proposed cross-defendants.

Moving party is ordered to give notice.
