A two-day divorced trial was ruled to my favor. No objections were filed to the statement of decision, or to the tentative judgment.
The California Superior Court issued a final judgment.
Then he substituted his attorney and the new attorney filed for appeal; however, the new attorney failed to file proper forms or documentations with the court of appeal. So the court of appeal sent out a “Default Notice” giving them a deadline (14 days) to file Case Information Statement or the appeal would be dismissed.
The deadline passed and they did not file the case information statement. So 4 days after the deadline had passed and they had defaulted he fired his second attorney and hired a new attorney. The substitution of attorney took place 4 days after the deadline had passed.
The new big shot attorney who also works with the court of appeal filed for extension of time to file (Form 2DCA-02) and it was granted.
Is there any law that would prohibit what they did or having connections at court is superior to the law ?
