Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.

Have you showed the bill of sale and the unopened returned certified letter to the California Department of Fish and Game? I would think that would be enough to get the new title without having to bother with court (i.e., that is how it is done with regard to motor vehicles with no title).
