My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
If the house has been listed as part of the pending suit in Contra Costa, you have a couple of options. One is an outright Motion to Dismiss
, explaining that there is a pending suit in another county that is already addressing the issue. The other is a Motion to Stay in the Riverside County case, basically for the same reasons - but you're saying that the case can proceed if for some reason that decision in Contra Costa county doesn't address ownership
of the house. If you're asking the judge to order your former partner to assign you his share of that property, then there is the risk of inconsistent verdicts
supports the argument that the case in Riverside needs to either be dismissed or stayed.
If your palimony claim doesn't specifically address who will own that property, then your option would be to file a Motion to Consolidate, basically asking the judge to agree to have both cases heard together.
