    The mere filing of a complaint in court does not provide notice on the defendant, nor does it confer the court's jurisdiction over the defendant. In order for that to happen the defendant must be properly served with both the complaint and a duly issued summons from the court.

    In an action where a state, county or local government entity or agency, or any officer thereof in his or her official capacity is plaintiff, the defendant must file a verified answer unless (1) the answering defendant is also a government entity, public agency, etc., or (2) if an admission of the truth of the complaint might subject the answering party to a criminal prosecution. See Code of Civil Procedure section 446.

    I assume you're deciding whether to hire a real estate agent or a real estate attorney. Buyers benefit most from realtors, who have the ability to market a seller's property on MLS and other listing services. But buyers obviously do not have the marketing needs of sellers. Buyers like you who have identified a specific market (Lake Elsinore), can perform their own research online to find prospective properties and pricing within that given market. So without the need for marketing or for...

    I have a slightly different take on your situation than Mr. Abbott. You purchased a house with money provided by your parents for the down payment, but also through the use of your good credit to qualify for a purchase your parents couldn't qualify for. Yes, mom and dad paid the mortgage but they enjoyed the use of the property during that time. Several key facts are missing, such as whether and how you documented this transaction with your parents. Arguably your parents are the 'equitable'...

    Although it is not illegal to eavesdrop on a conversation among people who don't know you're listening, California Penal Code section 632 makes it illegal to use an electronic device to eavesdrop and/or record a confidential conversation without all parties' consent. In order for a conversation to be considered confidential, it needs to occur under circumstances that reasonably indicate at least one person to the conversation (in this case the father) intends for the conversation to be private....

    You can request that the court allow you to file part or all of your responsive papers under seal. This will require a sworn declaration specifying the reason(s) for your request (e.g., safety concerns, etc.) Ask your court clerk and check your court's local rules for the proper procedure to file papers under seal.
