HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.I am sorry to hear of this matter. First, please note the correct CA code in this regard is 704.115 - not 504.155 With that being noted only for edification, I suggest that yes, if your Notice to E-Trade was received in time for the E-Trade not to sell the asset and forfeit the money, then you should contact a local attorney to consult on such a lawsuit.You also can discuss with your local attorney filing a Writ of Replevin to have the Sheriff return your money. And you can hold E-trade responsible for any and all interest you may have lost on that account because of their negligence.I suggest this is something you would want to consider consultation with a local attorney sooner than later as you do not want to have a statute of limitations barring your right to sue. Also, such an attorney may take your case on a contingency, meaning their fee would be a percentage of whatever settlement they get for you based on your damages and the interest lost would be.
Please let me know here if you have other questions or need more information in this regard as that is how I get credit for my time and information provided.
