Tentative Rulings

Case Number: ****6729    Hearing Date: March 11, 2020    Dept: 29

Evins v. Cortez Rivera

Plaintiff’s Motion to Set Aside Dismissal of Plaintiff’s Complaint is GRANTED. The dismissal entered on 8/27/19 is vacated. The Court’s order dismissing the action on 8/6/19 is VACATED.

A motion for order to vacate dismissal must be filed within six months of the dismissal and show grounds of mistake, inadvertence, surprise, and excusable neglect. Cal Code Civil Procedure ; 473(b).

The motion is timely made less than six months from the date of the dismissal. Plaintiff was not served at the proper address with the Court’s Order to Show Cause re Response or Entry of Default issued on 5/24/19.

If there is no prejudice, only slight evidence is needed. Doubts are resolved in favor of the party seeking relief. Mink v. Superior Court (1992) 2 Cal.App.4th 1338. Here, Plaintiff has sufficiently established that she is entitled to relief from dismissal.

Plaintiff’s counsel is ordered to make sure that the Court file reflects the correct address.

The court sets the following dates:

OSC re Response or Entry of Default: 5/11/2020, 8:30 a.m.

Final Status Conference: 8/6/2020 at 10:00 a.m.

Trial: 8/20/2020, 8:30 a.m.

OSC re Dismissal: 9/21/2020, 8:30 a.m.
