What is an Untimely Filed Motion?

Briefs “submitted after the deadline [set by the court] must be accepted for filing.” (CRC 3.1300(d).) But the court has full discretion to decide whether or not they will actually consider the brief in making their decision. (Rancho Mirage Country Club Homeowners Ass’n v. Hazelbaker, 206 Cal.Rptr.3d 233, 241 (2016).)

How to Structure the Motion

If there was a failure of a party to plead a cause of action “through oversight, inadvertence, mistake, neglect, or other cause, may apply to the court for leave to amend his pleading, or to file a cross-complaint…” (CCP § 426.50.) The court will grant such leave after giving notice to the other party and the leave is on terms just to both parties so long as the party who failed to plead did so in good faith. (Id.)

An application “for this relief shall be accompanied by a copy of the answer or other pleading proposed to be filed…and shall be made within a reasonable time, in no case exceeding six months, after the judgment, dismissal, order, or proceeding was taken.” (CCP § 473.)

The Court’s Decision

[T]here is a judicial preference to hear matters on their merits even when filings are late, but there must be good reason. (Kapitanski v. Von’s Grocery Co., Inc., 146 Cal.App.3d 29 (1983).)

“The court, upon any terms as may be just, relieve a party of his or her legal representative from a judgment, dismissal, order, or other proceeding taken against him or her through his or her mistake, inadvertence, surprise, or excusable neglect.” (CCP § 473.) The court will consider whether the motion will significantly impair due process or encourage bad precedent. (Id.) If the court refuses to consider the motion “the minutes or order must so indicate.” (CRC 3.1300(d).)

However, due to the strong preference of the law to settle matters in trial on the merits if there are “any doubts in applying section 473 [they] must be resolved in favor of the party seeking relief from default.” (Elston v. City of Turlock 38 Cal.3d 227, 233-234 (1985).)

Statute of Limitations

California Rules of Court “authorizes the filing of moving papers at least 16 court days before a hearing, an opposition at least 9 court days before a hearing, and a reply no later than 5 court days before the hearing.” (CRC 3.1300(d).)
