Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC684538    Hearing Date: November 07, 2019    Dept: 24

Defendants Drivetime Car Sales Company LLC, Bridgecrest Acceptance Corporation, and Fidelity and Deposit Company of Maryland’s petition to confirm the arbitration award is GRANTED.

On November 22, 2017, Plaintiffs Nanci Sterling and Rodney Kew filed a complaint against Defendants Drivetime Car Sales Company LLC, Bridgecrest Acceptance Corporation, and Fidelity and Deposit Company of Maryland. The complaint states six causes of action for: 1) violation of CLRA; 2) violation of the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act; 3) violation of the UCL; 4) fraud and deceit; 5) negligent misrepresentation; and 6) violation of Veh. Code section 11711. The case was sent to arbitration

On July 19, 2019, Defendants filed a petition confirm the arbitration award issued in favor of Defendants for $14,427.33. No opposition or petition for vacating the award was filed.

Legal Standard

Any party to an arbitration may petition the court to confirm an arbitration award. (CCP § 1285.) If a petition to confirm an arbitration award is duly served and filed, the court must confirm the award as made, unless the court corrects or vacates the award pursuant to a response to the petition or a petition to correct or vacate the award. (CCP § 1286; Valsan Partners Limited Partnership v. Calcor Space Facility, Inc. (1994) 25 Cal.App.4th 809, 818 [no authority to alter terms of award absent petition to correct].)

A petition to confirm an arbitration award must set forth the substance of or attach the arbitration agreement, include the name of the arbitrator, and set forth or attach a copy of the award and the written opinion of the arbitrator, if any. (CCP § 1285.4.) The petition must be served no earlier than 10 days, but no later than 4 years, after service of the award on the petitioner. (CCP §§ 1288, 1288.4.)

Discussion

Here, Defendants provide a copy of the agreement to arbitrate, sets forth the names of the arbitrators, and sets forth the award for $14,427.33 against Plaintiffs. A copy of the award was served on Defendants on June 21, 2019. Defendants served Plaintiffs with the Notice of Hearing via mail on July 19, 2019. Since the hearing date is not earlier than 10 days, and no later than 4 years after the award was served, the petition is timely. No opposition or request to vacate the award was provided in response to the petition. Consequently, granting the petition is mandatory. Accordingly, Defendants’ motion is GRANTED.

Moving party is ordered to give notice.
