How can I get the trial court to enforce its own order in a limited civil case.

Los Angeles, CA |

The court instructed one of the litigants to amend a writ within 10 days of its ruling on the the matter. Nonetheless, the party instructed to amend a previous writ issued in this case failed to do so within the time prescribed. Other than filing an appeal is there any other way to address this issue.

  1. There isn't sufficient information in your post to provide you with legal advice, and in any event, Avvo isn't a substitute for retaining your own attorney. Generally speaking, you can either file an objection or a noticed motion to bring the issue to the trial court's attention without having to file an appeal to the Appellate Division of the Superior Court.

  2. Need more info. You could always file a motion to enforce the court order and move for sanctions.


  3. You can bring an ex parte application to dismiss. If the party files an amended pleading first, you can move to strike it.
