SANCTIONS FOR FAILURE TO APPEAR against law firm in Calif

Recommended Posts

In California, What happens when a judge issues a SANCTIONS FOR FAILURE TO APPEAR against the lawyers who didn't show up for my hearing 2 days in a row? He dismissed my case on the second day. Are there fines, etc?

Likely the sanctions he imposed was dismissal without prejudice, this is the most often sanctions for something like this. So if they want to pursue it further, they have to pay to file it again. Now you need to get your memorandum of costs filed so they have to pay you and cost them more.

My guess is that the bottom feeder will have to pay a fine ( sanction) to the court. Nice job by the way. :ROFLMAO2:

Were these sanctions issued at your request or did the judge issue them on his own?

Judge issued them.

hi dafish, why didn't you push for dismissal w/prejudice? just curious. 

I guess I just wanted to get out of there. I hope they try to refile, because they, like all of the other JDB's had no case and I was ready to rock their world!

Yeah, sometimes I get pretty full of myself....I will be more careful. I just get so riled when I see all of these folks that are in the same boat as me being stomped on because we were victims of circumstance. I'm not a flake. I have had perfect credit my whole life until 2008 when it all went to hell. Heck, I hate having a debit card, but it's a neccesity. I will never, ever have a card, or an auto loan and if I can help it, a mortgage with a bank.....I will do business with my Credit Union, but very carefully....

I hear that. I think most of us here are or where in the same boat. The bad credit is temperary. You will probaly beat them anyway if they do come back, and enjoy it.
