If you are in possession of a written document from the State of CA titled something like "Receipt For Payment of Tax - Lien Release", or anything close to that which refers to the specific lien in question, that is all you will ever need. The request for statutes and case law cannot be complied with. The document speaks for itself in law and there will be no statutes or cases which deal with the efficacy of an official signed receipt and lien release by the State. I hope you understand this response and that this information is helpful.
