1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 TRUSTEES OF UA LOCAL 159 HEALTH AND WELFARE TRUST FUND, et al., Plaintiffs, v. RUIZ BROTHERS PREFERRED PLUMBING, INC., et al., Defendants. _______________________________/ On May 26, 2010, defendants and cross-claimants filed an opposition to the motion to dismiss the cross-complaint, filed by cross-defendants U.A. Local 159, U.A. Local 342, Pipe Trades District Council No. 36, and Aram Hodess. In this opposition, defendants and cross-claimants assert that the court should deny the motion because "[t]here are no pleadings or briefs filed with this motion that identify the allegations made by crossdefendants," and the only documents filed in connection with the motion were the proposed order, a declaration by Adam J. Zapala, the exhibits to the Zapala Declaration, and a declaration by Scott Strawbridge. Although the court is not certain what is intended in this context by the phrase "identify the allegations made by cross-defendants," the court has nevertheless reviewed the docket entries, and finds that the assertion that there are "no . . . briefs" is incorrect. The documents referenced by defendants and cross-claimants are simply "attachments" to the filing. The memorandum of points and authorities in support of the motion which defendants and cross-claimants assert does not exist is accessible as Docket No. 53.
