Plaintiff has failed to provide evidence that the imposition of a sanction against her would be unjust. (Code Civ. Proc., § 2023.030, subd. (a); Johns decl., ¶ 3.) Given the relative simplicity of the motion, the Court finds the requested attorney's fees unreasonable. Therefore, the Court awards sanctions for...

Hearing Date: 2020.12.17
Excerpt: ...E; Underwood decl.,¶ 4, Exh. B.)

Excerpt: ...) Compliance with the statutory procedures for service of process is essential to establish personal jurisdiction. (Sakaguchi v. Sakaguchi (2009) 173 Cal.App.4th 852, 858.) Actual notice of the action alone is not a substitute for proper service of process and is not alone sufficient to confer jurisdiction. (American Express Centurion Bank v. Zara (2011) 199 Cal.App.4th 383, 392.) A summons may be served by personal delivery of a copy of the summ...
