Should I try to have a case dismissed that wasn't served?


Recommended Posts

In doing some research on a recent lawsuit notice I received, I noticed a few other lawsuits against me that were never served, and for some reason, never proceeded (probably because I was never served, and no such proof was filed).

Should I try and have these cases dismissed?

I have noticed a few other cases that show:

"CASE DISMISSED WITH DISPOSITION OF REQUEST FOR DISMISSAL"

What does that mean??

It means the plaintiff dismissed for one reason or another...

In CA, you can be served with a case up to 4 years (if memory serves) after a lawsuit is filed, however many courts will sanction a plaintiff if they fail to serve within 6 months.

Of course, this all depends on local court rules as well.

I'd avoid filing a motion to dismiss...let sleeping dogs lie...

Interesting you mention the 6 months. It was exactly 6 months after their initial filling.
