In addition, is there any statues that govern defective proof of services for declarations in a regular general civil matter? Is a proof of service defective if numerous, about eight, declarations, were handed to you by the plaintiff's attorney on the day of the hearing in civil court? This was something that has happened to me in the past (in 2008).It is my understanding that written declarations of witnesses in support of a party's case (whether defendant or plaintiff) is governed by California Code of Civil Procedures 1013 or 1013 (a). Normally, I use the POS-030 - California Judicial Council Form - which supports service of papers by mail. I cannot seem to find any subsections under California Code of Procedures 1013 that governs statue of limitations on written declarations written by witnesses. I have always assumed that defective proof of services on anything (such as a demurrer, motion to strike, some other type of notice of motion, or any type of legal document) lacked a courts jurisdiction to act; however, I am unsure about this. If there is no prescribed statue or fixed statue on this, I do plan to talk with my local assemblymen to get them to create better laws or to get the Judicial Branch to do that.
