Court reverses default judgment, quashes service of process on GMSR client

Leontaritis v. Koursaris (2011) 2011 Cal.App. Unpub. LEXIS 5041 (California Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Seven) [unpublished]. No one is supposed to be subjected to judgment without first duly being brought under the jurisdiction of the court. But the superior court refused to set aside a default judgment entered against GMSR’s client in a fraudulent conveyance lawsuit or to recognize that the service of process on her failed to comply with statutory requirements. The Court of Appeal reversed with directions, commanding the superior court to enter a new order vacating the default and default judgment and quashing service of summons and complaint.
