Motion to quash for lack of service
Goines, Paul L. Freese, Mason H. Rose V and James P. Barber for Plaintiffs and Appellants. This is an appeal from an order of the superior court denying a petition for writ of mandate directed to respondent municipal court. Real party in interest B. Percin hereinafter "plaintiff" filed a complaint for breach of contract fn. Defendants moved to quash service of summons on the ground that the court lacked jurisdiction over them, to [49 Cal.
However, the court further held: "The request for attorney's fee under CC by the defendants constitute [sic] a general appearance. Defendants sought a writ of mandate from the superior court directing the respondent municipal court to quash service of summons, but their petition was denied without written opinion. Defendants appeal from the superior court judgment denial of the petition.
The service and filing of the notice shall extend the defendant's time to plead [49 Cal. The defendant shall file or enter his responsive pleading in the trial court within the time prescribed by subdivision b unless, on or before the last day of his time to plead, he serves upon the adverse party and files with the trial court a notice that he has petitioned for such writ of mandate.
The service and filing of such notice shall extend his time to plead until 10 days after service upon him of a written notice of the final judgment in the mandate proceeding. Such time to plead may for good cause shown be extended by the trial court for an additional period not exceeding 20 days.
The provisions of this section, enacted in , are legislatively drawn exceptions to the general rule that a party who appears in an action is thereby subject to the jurisdiction of the court.
Subdivision a 1 recognizes the long-standing "special appearance" exception, under which a defendant may appear for the purpose of contesting the assertion of personal jurisdiction without thereby subjecting himself to the very jurisdiction he is challenging.
Subdivision a 2 of section Absent this provision, defendants' motion to dismiss on the ground of inconvenient forum would have constituted a general appearance. Zobel, Cal. Ash, 92 Cal. See also Milstein v. Ogden, 84 Cal.
Casa De Oro, Ltd. Not only is a motion to dismiss on the ground of inconvenient forum a recent statutory creation, but it is also inconsistent with and necessarily phrased in the alternative to a motion to quash service for lack of jurisdiction. An "inconvenient forum" argument concedes jurisdiction, for it asks the court to decline to exercise the jurisdiction it constitutionally has. See Hadler v. Western Greyhound Racing Circuit, 34 Cal.
Union Pac. If he appears and objects only to the consideration of the case, or to any procedure in it, because the court has not acquired jurisdiction of the person of the defendant, the appearance is special, and no statement to that effect in the notice or motion is required or could have any effect if made.
On the other hand, if he appears and asks for any relief which could only be given to a party in a pending case, or which itself would be a regular proceeding in the case, it is a general appearance no matter how carefully or expressly it may be stated that the appearance is special.
It is the character of the relief asked, and not the intention of the party that it shall or shall not constitute a general appearance, which is material.
It is patent that in conceding jurisdiction and moving to dismiss on inconvenient forum grounds, defendants did much more than In re Clarke and related cases permit. But their so doing was statutorily exempt from being treated as a general appearance. This exempt status of defendants' inconvenient forum motion is the underlying factor which impels us to disagree with the municipal and superior courts' treatment of defendants' application for attorney's fees.
We note, first, that if defendants' motion to quash service had been granted, the court would have been without power to award attorney's [49 Cal. Civil Code section , under which the claim for fees was made, authorizes their award only upon the rendering of a "final judgment.
Kay, 47 Cal. The quashing of service would neither constitute nor authorize such a final judgment. Nor would there be any statutory authority for the award of attorney's fees, as costs, or of costs in general. See Gutting v. Globe Indemnity Co. Ablett v. Hancock Oil Co.
On the other hand, the affirmative response to the inconvenient forum motion would be a judgment of dismissal. Such a dismissal would make a claim for attorney's fees under section timely irrespective of the merits of the claim. Similarly, section of the Code of Civil Procedure states that "in municipal courts and justice courts fn. Thus a dismissal rendered by the court entitles the prevailing party to his costs.
See Fisher v. Eckert, 94 Cal. Procedure 2d ed. Attorney's fees awarded pursuant to section are deemed costs. An application for attorney's fees under section , whether or not they are deemed costs, is thus an appropriate incident of a motion to dismiss on the ground of inconvenient forum.
The application is no more inconsistent with the concept of special appearance than is the main motion, which is statutorily deemed not a general appearance. It would, moreover, defeat the purpose of that statutory exemption to hold that defendants may claim statutory rights appurtenant thereto only by surrendering their basic rights thereunder. A motion under Code Civ. Superior Court, 19 Cal. We discern no legislative intent that a party who moves to quash summons should be thus procedurally disadvantaged.
On the contrary in the Legislature removed certain anomalies which case law had developed by the enactment of section Thus the rule of Judson v. Superior Court, 21 Cal. Superior Court, 63 Cal.
The trend discussed in Loftin is reflected clearly in subdivision a 2 of section Before the recent enactment of this provision, a defendant challenging both the jurisdiction and convenience of the forum was faced with a Hobson's choice: either forgo making the alternative inconvenient forum motion or waive the jurisdictional objection by so doing.
Now that the Legislature has obviated this choice, "a most unfair situation would result" if applying for the attorney's fees to which a defendant may be statutorily entitled as an incident of successfully making such a motion had the effect of establishing jurisdiction.
This rationale has been employed in other situations in which incidents of exempt proceedings have been held not to constitute general appearances. In Corp. Superior Court, 57 Cal. The court said 57 Cal. For example, it has been held that although an appearance for the purpose of a motion to dismiss is ordinarily general in character, a motion to dismiss pursuant to former section a of the Code of Civil Procedure did not constitute a general appearance because a contrary result would 'emasculate' the statute.
Pease v. City of San Diego, 93 Cal. Bonelli, 91 Cal. Fouchy, 76 Cal. The discovery statutes contain provisions authorizing the granting of relief against oppressive interrogatories e. Accordingly, we hold that objections to interrogatories upon the ground they are oppressive, made during the pendency of a motion to quash, do not constitute a general appearance.
In Fount Wip, Inc. Golstein, 33 Cal. Farmers etc. Superior Court, 25 Cal. However, even if we assume arguendo that defendant did not confine himself to a special appearance on the issue of jurisdiction, we hold, nonetheless, that defendant did not enter a general appearance and did not expose himself to the personal jurisdiction of the court: 'If, in a proceeding begun by attachment Jaynes, Mass.
All the above considerations require the conclusion that the application for attorney's fees was a proper incident of the motion to dismiss on the ground of inconvenient forum and did not deprive that motion of its exempt status. Defendants did not expressly limit their application for attorney's fees to the situation where their inconvenient forum motion was granted.
Had they done so, it would be clear that defendants had not generally appeared. The question arises whether their failure to so limit the application requires a contrary result. We conclude that it does not. Neither fees nor costs in general could have been recovered upon the granting of a motion to quash. The general application for fees should be reasonably construed as seeking such fees only in the situation in which the court would be authorized to award them, that is, upon granting the motion to dismiss.
While we cannot sanction, as did the court in Kingsley v. Great Northern Ry. It is not denied but that the defendant might have costs of the motion upon granting the relief prayed, and we think it would be going too far to construe the present notice as an application for relief which the court could grant only in case it had jurisdiction of the subject matter and of the defendant, and, therefore, by a refined and exceedingly technical construction, was a waiver of that want of jurisdiction upon which it was expressly and constantly insisting.
The claim for costs must be construed as a claim only for such costs as the court might properly grant on setting aside the service of the summons, and, therefore, was not a waiver of the objection or a general appearance.
The conclusion of the municipal court that the request for attorney's fees under section constituted a general appearance was, therefore, erroneous. The holding in this respect, however, does not require a reversal of the judgment of the superior court with respect to defendant Berard Construction Co. The superior court judgment with respect to defendant corporation is supported by adequate evidence that it expressly consented to jurisdiction of the California courts in the contract sued upon.
On the other hand, defendant Rene J. Berard was sued upon a separate contract whereby he guaranteed the company's obligation; that contract contained no such consent to jurisdiction. Paragraph 12 of the contract between plaintiff and defendant corporation upon which the suit was based provides as follows:.
