Cytron v. PHH Mortgage Corporation et al
ORDER denying Plaintiff's 45 Ex Parte Motion. (See document for further details). Signed by Judge David G Campbell on 1/5/17. (LAD)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA
Adam C. Cytron,
PHH Mortgage Corporation, USAA Federal
Savings Bank, Jason P Sherman, Kari
Sheehan, and Daniel C Schmidt,
Plaintiff Adam C. Cytron has filed an ex parte motion asking the Court to relieve
him of a forcible entry and detained judgment entered in Pinal County Superior Court.
Doc. 45. Plaintiff argues that he was not properly served in the state action, and that the
state court therefore lacked authority to enter judgment against him. He also makes other
allegations regarding the manner in which the plaintiff’s attorney and the judge behaved
in the state case. Id. For several reasons, the motion will be denied.
First, Plaintiff states that Pinal County Superior Court “is the Defendant” for
purposes of his motion, but that court is not a defendant in this case. Other than Plaintiff,
the parties in the state court action are not parties here, and the Court has no jurisdiction
Second, the motion is based on Rule 60 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
Id. at 1. Rule 60, however, concerns judgments entered in this Court, not in other courts.
Third, even if the Court did have jurisdiction over the party Plaintiff seeks to
enjoin, and did have a legal basis for acting, federal courts normally cannot interfere with
state court proceedings.

stopping state court eviction proceeding).
See Lizalek v. Milwaukee Cty., No. 12-C-1005, 2012 WL
