Department 32

jonathan mehrian,

Plaintiff,

v.

hassan abduh, et al.,

Defendants.

Case No.: BC668912

Hearing Date: January 24, 2020

[TENTATIVE] order RE:

Motion To SET ASIDE default

Plaintiff Jonathan Mehrian filed this action against Defendants Hassan Abduh and Joseph Khoury (“Khoury”) (collectively “Defendants”) following a motor vehicle collision. Defendants move to set aside the default entered against Khoury on September 25, 2019. Plaintiff purportedly served Khoury on January 4, 2019 via substituted service. However, counsel for Defendants has advanced evidence that Khoury was deceased at that time. (See Declaration of Perry Forrester, Exhibit A.) If Khoury was deceased at the time Plaintiff purportedly served him, the default against Khoury is void. (See Peralta v. Heights Medical Center, Inc. (1988) 485 U.S. 80, 84.)

Plaintiff has stipulated to proceed against Khoury’s insurance policy, and to waive all damages not covered by the insurance policy. (See Prob. Code, § 554; Declaration of Perry Forrester, Exhibit B.) Accordingly, the motion to set aside default is granted. Plaintiff may proceed against Khoury’s insurance policy. Defendant shall provide notice and file proof of such with the Court.

v.

hassan abduh, et al.,

Defendants.

Case No.: BC668912

Hearing Date: December 10, 2019

[TENTATIVE] order RE:

Motion To SET ASIDE default

Plaintiff Jonathan Mehrian sued Defendants Hassan Abduh and Joseph Khoury (“Khoury”) (collectively “Defendants”) based on injuries Plaintiff in a motor vehicle collision. Counsel for Defendants moves to set aside the default entered against Khoury on September 25, 2019. Counsel for Defendants served this motion on Plaintiff by mail on October 24, 2019. That was not sufficient notice. (Code Civ. Proc., § 1005, subd. (b).) As Plaintiff did not oppose the motion, he did not waive any objection to insufficient notice. Therefore, the Court continued the motion so counsel for Defendants could provide proper notice. The Court continued the hearing to December 10, 2019, and the Court ordered Defendants to “provide notice and file proof of such with the Court.” Defendants failed to do so. Therefore, this motion is denied without prejudice to Defendant re-filing and properly serving the motion sufficiently in advance of the hearing date.
