PLAINTIFF’S OPPOSITION TO DEMURRER
SUMMARY OF DEFENDANTS’ POSITION
Defendant S.H.P., moves the court to sustain a demurrer to each of the causes of action on the grounds that each fails to plead facts sufficient to state a cause of action, Code Civ. Proc. sec. 430.10 (e), and for reason that they believe that the complaint is uncertain, ambiguous, or unintelligible, Code Civ. Proc. sec. 430.10 (f).
The Notice of Demurrer and Demurrer of Sacramento Housing Project to Plaintiffs Third Amended Complaint for sexual harassment, dated 03/16/2007, and the Memorandum of Points and Authorities in Support of Sacramento Housing Project’s Demurrer to Plaintiffs Third Amended Complaint, dated 03/16/2007 are both unverified as to any facts therein (plaintiff accepts the case citations), therefore the plaintiff will address the grounds of the demurrer, only.
Plaintiff notes that the pleading of the Third Amended Complaint, dated February 5, 2007, was written with the aid of the source Cal. Causes of Action, James Publishing, Inc., Santa Ana, CA, 2007, on the elements and Calif. Civil Practice Guide, Weil and Brown, The Rutter Group, 2008, on declaratory relief.
