IN THE SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA

IN AND FOR THE COUNTY OF NEVADA

Case No.: XXXXXX

OBJECTION TO COMPLAINT

Investment Retrievers Inc.,

Plaintiff,

vs.

Joe Blow,

Defendant

MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES

INTRODUCTION

Comes now the Defendant Joe Blow, and files this Objection to Complaint, per California Civil Code Chapter 4 Section 430.30.

FACTS

1. Defendant received the Plaintiff's Complaint on or about December 1, 2005. Defendant answered the complaint on or about December 28, 2005.

2. On or about January 17, 2006, Defendant filed a motion to strike because nearly all of the complaint contained false information (motion to strike complaint California Civil Code of Procedure 436 (a)).

We claim the false information based on the following facts:

(a) The Plaintiff has failed to provide any contract or agreement bearing the signature of the Defendant, nor any itemized statements or billing of said debts.

(B) Plaintiff has failed to provide a detailed list of the debts to the Defendant in the initial debt collection notice as require by the FDCPA and as evidence by case law. Coppola v. Arrow Financial Services, 302CV577, 2002 WL 32173704(D.Conn., Oct. 29, 2002) – Information relating to the purchase of a bad debt is not proprietary or burdensome. Debtor must phrase their request clearly to obtain: The source of a debt and the amount a bad debt buyer paid for plaintiff’s debt, how amount sought was calculated, where in issue a list of reports to credit bureaus, and documents conferring authority on defendant to collect debt.

© The Plaintiff has failed to provide any proof of a relationship between themselves and the alleged original creditor, specifically the authority of the Plaintiff to collect the debt on behalf of the original creditor.

3. On or about Feb 1, 2006, Plaintiff filed an opposition to the Defendant’s motion to strike. The hearing for the motion to strike was set for Feb 15, 2006.

STANDARD OF REVIEW AND APPLICABLE LAW

4. The Defendant, in addition to the motion to strike, would like to file an objection to the original complaint based on California Civil Code of Procedure 430.10. The party against whom a complaint or cross-complaint has been filed may object, by demurrer or answer as provided in Section 430.30, to the pleading on any one or more of the following grounds:

430.10 (B) The person who filed the pleading does not have the legal capacity to sue.

430.10 (d) There is a defect or misjoinder of parties.

In regards to Section 430.30 (B), Incapacity to sue exists when there is some legal disability, such as infancy or lunacy or a want of title in the plaintiff to the character in which he sues. In this case, as stated in the motion to strike, the plaintiff has failed to provide a definitive relationship between themselves and the alleged original creditor of the alleged debt.

In regards to Section 430.30 (d), The legal definition of misjoinder of parties is the “joining as plaintiffs or defendants, persons, who have not a joint interest”. In this case, as stated in the motion to strike, the plaintiff has failed to provide a definitive relationship between themselves and the alleged original creditor of the alleged debt.

WHEREFORE, Defendant, XXXXXXXXXX, respectfully submits that the Court should dismiss or deny the Plaintiff's complaint, filed herein Palisades Collections, Inc. The Defendant prays for Dismissal of the complaint by the Plaintiff.

Defendant's Request submitted this ___________ day, of __________ 20__

What is the Colorado civil procedure code for the same thing?

http://www.michie.com/colorado/lpext.dll?f=templates&fn=main-h.htm

Don't see it anywhere.

(I wish we had a list for every state in the USA's exact civil codes for this so all we had to do was look it up here. It is really hard to try and find it when your new to the legal arena.)

PS Thank you LUEser for the megapast. I think yours is also located here http://debt-consolidation-credit-repair-service.com/forums/showthread.php?t=210981.

I just meant for the specific civil code for each state reguarding California Section 430.30 ,so it isn't hard to look it up.I find it hard myself.

A demurrer is a type of motion that can be filed with the court instead of filing an answer. The deadline for filing is the same as your answer. The arguments in this demurrer specifically address a complaint for breach of contract where no exhibits are attached. Generally, the contract is required to pursue a breach of contract claim, so they won't be able to proceed with their case until they present the contract to the court.

Here's the meat of the brief:

_________________________

I. INTRODUCTION & RELEVANT BACKGROUND

Defendant ______________ ("Defendant") respectfully submits the following Memorandum of Points and Authorities in support of her General Demurrer to Plaintiff Midland Funding LLC’s (“Plaintiff”) Complaint.

On ___________________, Plaintiff filed the instant suit for monetary damages in the sum of $____________. In its Complaint, Plaintiff claims this amount accrued under a written agreement between the parties. Plaintiff’s Complaint, however, is fatally flawed. Plaintiff neither attaches a copy of the purported agreement with Defendant to its Complaint, nor pleads any of the essential elements of the alleged contract. The lack of a contract or, alternatively, a recitation of its terms, leaves Defendant completely in the dark as to the basis of the claim being asserted against her by an entity which is completely unknown to her. Plaintiff conspicuously fails to provide information regarding the date the purported contract was entered into or even the subject of the contract (i.e., whether for goods, services, credit, etc.).

Not only does Plaintiff’s vague pleading fly in the face of the interests of justice, such pleading is prohibited by statute. As set forth in more detail below, Plaintiff has wholly failed to meet its statutory obligations under California Code of Civil Procedure [“CCP”] Section 430.10(e), and it is respectfully requested that the Court sustain Defendant’s demurrer without leave to amend since it appears that there is no reasonable possibility that Plaintiff can cure the fatal defects.

II. LEGAL AUTHORITY

A. A Demurrer is Properly Sustained Where a Pleading Fails to State Facts Sufficient to Constitute a Cause of Action

A general demurrer is proper when the complaint fails to allege facts sufficient to constitute a cause of action. (CCP § 430.10(e).) To determine whether a complaint fails to allege sufficient facts, a demurrer must challenge defects that appear on the face of the complaint. (Id., § 430.30(a).) The “face of the complaint” includes matters shown in exhibits attached to the complaint and incorporated therein by reference and matters of which the court may take judicial notice. (Ibid.; Frantz v. Blackwell (1987) 189 Cal.App.3d 91, 94.) If upon consideration of all facts stated it appears that plaintiff is not entitled to the relief sought, the complaint or any causes of action therein will be held invalid. (Songer v. Cooney (1989) 214 Cal.App.3d 389, 390.)

It is well settled that a plaintiff must set forth specific facts in a complaint so that the defendant may plead intelligently and responsively to the pleading without having to guess or speculate as to the items of material or essential facts. (See Ankeny v. Lockheed Missile & Space Company (1979) 88 Cal.App.3d 931, 937.)

In the instant action, Plaintiff’s entire Complaint is subject to demurrer because it fails to state facts sufficient to constitute causes of action for common counts (First Cause of Action) or breach of contract (Second Cause of Action). (Code Civ. Proc. § § 430.10(e).)

here's the rest of the brief (it wouldn't fit in one msg!)

B. Plaintiff’s Claims for Breach of Contract and Common Counts Fail as a Matter of Law

In order to make out a claim for breach of contract, Plaintiff must plead the contract, its performance of the contract or excuse for nonperformance, Defendant’s breach and the resulting damage. (Lortz v. Connell (1969) 273 Cal.App.2d 286, 290.)

Here, Plaintiff fails to plead the terms of the alleged agreement between the parties or to attach a copy of the alleged agreement to the Complaint. Instead, Plaintiff alleges a written agreement was entered not on a specific date but rather “within the last four years.” (See Complaint at p. __, ¶ ___.) Plaintiff then merely inserts the following boilerplate language claiming it constitutes the essential terms of this alleged contract:

“Plaintiff, or Plaintiff’s assignor, and defendants, and each of them, entered into a written agreement. By the terms of the said agreement(s), plaintiff provided defendants, and each of them, with [services rendered] and/or [goods, wares and merchandise] and/or [extension of credit] and/or [monies paid laid out or expended] at defendant(s) request.”

(See Complaint at p. __, ¶ ___.)

If the action is based on an alleged breach of a written contract, the terms must be set out verbatim in the body of the complaint or a copy of the written instrument must be attached and incorporated by reference. (Wise v. Southern Pacific Co. (1963) 223 Cal.App.2d 50, 59, emphasis added; Otworth v. Southern Pacific Transportation Co. (1985) 166 Cal.App.3d 452, 458-59.)

It is clear from the face of the Complaint that the above boilerplate language is not from any finalized written agreement but rather sample contract terms designed to be tailored to a specific agreement, hence the bracketed terms where the essential elements are meant to be placed. Not only is inserting language from some sort of sample contract inartful, Plaintiff's inclusion of the same highlights the falsity of its claims.

Similarly, under a cause of action for common counts on open book account and account stated, Plaintiff alleges as follows:

“By the terms of the said agreement(s), Plaintiff or Plaintiff’s assignor, provided defendants, and each of them, with services rendered and/or goods, wares, and merchandise and/or extension of credit at defendant’s special instance and request and in consideration thereof defendants promised to provide payment in the sum of $_________ and interest thereon which defendants and each of them failed to provide.”

(Complaint at p. ___, ¶ ____.)

Based on the foregoing, Defendant is wholly unable to ascertain whether a contract actually exists or what precise terms were purportedly breached. This wholesale failure to allege the verbatim terms of the contract, or to attach the agreement, thus renders Plaintiff’s breach of contract/common counts claim fatally defective.

C. The Demurrer Should be Sustained Without Leave to Amend Since There is No Reasonable Possibility Plaintiff Can Cure The Defects

A demurrer must be sustained without leave to amend absent a showing by the plaintiff of a reasonable possibility that the defect can be cured by amendment. (Blank v. Kirwan (1985) 39 Cal.3d 311; Lacher v. Superior Court (1991) 230 Cal.App.3d 1038, 1043.) The burden of proving such reasonable possibility is squarely on the plaintiff. (Torres v. City of Yorba Linda (1993) 13 Cal.App.4th 1035, 1041; Blank, 39 Cal.3d at 318; see also, Lacher, 230 Cal.App.3d at 1043.)

Here, Defendant’s demurrer should be sustained without leave to amend since there does not appear to be any reasonable possibility that Plaintiff can amend its Complaint to overcome demurrer. If Plaintiff, who presumably is aware it carries the burden of proof, possessed the alleged contract with Defendant, it is unlikely that Plaintiff would have simply neglected to attach it. Its failure to do so is evidence of the fact that no contract between the parties has ever existed. Its failure to plead the requisite “essential terms” of the alleged contract – let alone any of the terms whatsoever – is further evidence that no contract exists and that Plaintiff’s Complaint is without merit.

Having established that it does not have any written agreement with Defendant, and having established that it is not aware of when the purported agreement was entered into, whether it was for goods, services, credit or otherwise, Plaintiff cannot, in good faith, amend to cure such defects. Leave to amend should, therefore, be properly denied.

III. CONCLUSION

For the foregoing reasons, Defendant respectfully requests that the demurrer to Plaintiff's Complaint, in its entirety, be sustained without leave to amend.

This is good if you get a summons and you don't have time to answer in the allotted time (in MA 20 days). I used this and the motion was allowed. I thought I needed a continuance, but what you are actually doing, is asking the judge if it's OK to break the rules (a leave) in connection with your answer. Then you ask for extra time. In my case he only gave 20 more days. To wit:

MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE ANSWER

Comes now (your name), stating that:

1. The service of this Complaint was attested to by the (your County) Deputy Sheriff on xx/xx/0x.

2. An answer is required of defendant no later than 20 days, which date is xx/xx/0x.

3. Defendant requires additional time due to (your excuse which should sound pretty damn important).

4. Defendant submits attachment B, which serves as proof of same. (I attached a statement from a doctor).

5. Defendant requests an additional 90 days, or, notwithstanding, 60 additional days to answer Complaint.

6. Defendant contacted Plaintiff on xx/xx/x8 asking if Plaintiff would object to this motion. Plaintiff asked defendant to file the motion with the court.

WHEREFORE, I respectfully request a leave to file answer, and for all other just and proper relief. I affirm under the penalties of perjury that the foregoing representations are true.

11. Defendant reserves the right to plead other affirmative defenses that may become applicable and/or available at a later time, (for example, if a real party in interest is established for alleged account).

12. Defendant reserves the right to submit counterclaims that may become applicable and/or available at a later time, (for example, if a real party in interest is established for alleged account) including, but not limited to, violations of the Federal Truth in Lending Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

Defendant prays this case be dismissed with prejudice along with any further relief the court deems just and proper. Further the defendant sayeth not.

Hi,

I am VERY new to this forum so if I am asking a question that has been asked and answered a million other times I apologize in advance.

My husband got served a summons for an unpaid credit card. The plaintiff is Citibank represented by Lustig, Glaser and Wilson, P.C.

What order do I file the documents in?

The Notice of Appearance

The Answer to the Complaint

The Sworn Denial

Should the Sworn Denial be sent in with the Answer to the Complaint?

How do I properly and legally submit the answers? Does it need to be certified mail?

Due to our financial situation we cannot afford an attorney so have to go this on our own. Any help will ge greatly appreciated!!!!!

Admin , maybe you could help me , I do not understand how this forum works , how do I send in questions to you ? Above you posted various motions , would they be okay to use in Florida courts ? I have received Summons to Appear ( for pretrial conference / mediation ) I have sent Rubin & Debski ( I guess they are lawyers for Capial One Bank ) a Letter Of Demand for Validation by Certified Mail , If they do not send it I guess I will need to file a motion MOTION TO COMPEL DISCOVERY when I appear in court ?

Thank You David 9041

You would do much better by answering the summons before you find yourself with a default judgement.

You stated ( You would do much better by answering the summons before you find yourself with a default judgement. ) I do not understand what you mean by answering the summons , it states that I need to appear 6 /17 /09 , I plan to appear and dispute the amount ( 2,603.13 plus interest ) when I called Rubin & Debski they stated the full amount was 4, 000. Dollars so I sent them the validation request . Does answering mean showing up ? Or is there more to it ?

What exactly does the summons say?

You have posted in several other threads. There are answers in those threads.

Valdiation is out the window now that they have issued suit. The time for VOD was within 30 days of the dunning letter.

What have you done so far as regards answering the summons?

you need both sheets, i used this to get a copy of a phone record, just go in during court and the clerk will pass it to the judge for signing. the subpoena means." to produce tangible evidence for use at a hearing or trial.

"which seeks not so much the appearance of a person before a court of law, but the surrender of a thing (eg. a document or some other evidence) by its holder, to the court, to be available if required as evidence in a trial."

------------------------------------------------------------------------

you can use this to get your own documents if the CA isnt providing them to you,( can use for the OC records,, phone records (A hint here) say the CA calls way to often,, well you "could" use this to get the records showing just HOW many times they called from thier phone carrier/ provider, and a reverse look up sometimes shows whos the Provider of the number . and watch them Cr*p when you have thier Own records , ooh so hard for a CA to say we did not,, when you have that in hand..

Wow this is awesome information. I used to be a litigation para in NYC and now my husband is being sued by Altantic Credit. I drafted a motion to dismiss the complaint because they are suing him the a county in which we do not live. We receive all our mail at a PO Box and Plaintiff filed docs with the court and sent them to our home address where we don't get mail. I found out that the docs were filed online. Is there some kind soul out there who might take a peek at my motion. I'm open to criticism because I haven't done this since 1996. I have a diabetic 10 year old who needs my full attention and this is going to make me snap. Help please:)
