Yes so Maya Angelou is dead -- RIP great lady, and thank you for enriching our lives so, by your art and by your example.
Now let's see what profoundly moving art our Resplendently Robed denizens created this week:
Oh dear trial judge -- you entered an order dismissing a claim with prejudice, but you accidentally forgot something -- any reasoning or explanation of any kind:
The order fails to set forth any factual or legal basis for its dismissal with prejudice, and this Court has no way of determining whether the dismissal with prejudice is premised, for example, on Appellant’s non-compliance with a prior order; a failure to state a claim (or failure to amend to state a claim); an abuse of the judicial process; or some other basis that might support the trial court’s exercise of its discretion. Further, the order itself indicates that the hearing was set only for the purpose of addressing Appellant’s motion for rehearing. There is nothing in the record below to suggest that Appellant was placed on notice that the trial court would also consider dismissal of the complaint at this hearing, muchless a dismissal with prejudice. Rudimentary notions of due process require that we reverse that portion of the order dismissing the action with prejudice, with directions to reinstate the action.But that was Judge Emas in partial dissent -- turns out what the Judge did was perfectly proper!
Want to know why?
Ok, here you go:
PER CURIAM.So that should clear things up.
Redwood Recovery v. Addle Hill:
"And she stepped on the Venetian Salami."
Have a good day all!
