Kimes vs. William Lyon Property Management

Motion for New Trial
Plaintiff Kimes is renewing a Motion for New Trial. A similar motion was denied by the Court on or about April 26, 2019. Plaintiff’s renewed Motion for New trial is Denied. Judicial notice has been taken of the records of the case (see Evidence Code § 452(d); Dillard v. McKnight (1949) 34 Cal.2d 209, 218 (“a trial court is bound to take judicial notice of its own records in the same action”); Nichols v. Hast (1965) 62 Cal.2d 598, 600 (court may take judicial notice of its own records in assessing motion for new trial); Nichols v. Hast (1965) 62 Cal.2d 598, 600 (judicial notice is proper of the minute orders); Gulf Ins. Co. v. TIG Ins. Co. (2001) 86 Cal.App.4th 422, 438 (judicial notice taken of the dates of court filings and dates of events recorded therein).)
The Court lacks jurisdiction to grant a new trial. A motion seeking a new trial is subject to strict time limits. (Cal. Code Civil Proced. § 659, 660.) The time limits are “jurisdictional”........
