Thursday, April 19, 2018

Mistakes happen in the course of a civil lawsuit. For example, a defendant may fail to respond to a lawsuit within the allotted time, resulting in a default; or, a plaintiff may fail to respond to a motion to dismiss filed by the defendant, resulting in dismissal. In this class, learn about civil procedures for setting aside defaults and other mistakes in California state courts.

Class covers:

  • California Code of Civil Procedure §473
  • When and how a party may seek relief from his or her mistakes
  • What constitutes “default” and “dismissal”
  • Preparing motions to vacate
