Clinton v. International Organization Masters, Mates & Pilots

Annotate this Case
[Civ. No. 26330. Second Dist., Div. Four. Feb. 14, 1963.]

RICHARD H. CLINTON, Plaintiff and Appellant, v. INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION OF MASTERS, MATES AND PILOTS et al., Defendants and Respondents.

COUNSEL

Richard H. Clinton, in pro. per., for Plaintiff and Appellant.

Bodle & Fogel, George E. Bodle, Daniel Fogel and Lawrence Drasin for Defendants and Respondents.

OPINION

BURKE, P. J.

[1] This is an appeal from the order made November 1, 1961, "Denying Plaintiff's Motion for Reconsidering the Court's Order of Dismissal of the Petition and Complaint." The order dismissing the action was made October 20, 1961, in response to a motion of defendants International Organization of Masters, Mates and Pilots, West Coast Local No. 90 and Robert E. Durkin. The ground of the motion for reconsideration was judicial error--the dismissal had eliminated indispensable parties--; no fact not available upon the hearing of the motion to dismiss was presented. The order denying the motion to reconsider, under such circumstances, is not an appealable order. (Hunt v. United Artists Studio Inc., 79 Cal. App. 2d 619, 626 [180 P.2d 460].)

The appeal is dismissed.

Jefferson, J., and Bishop, J. pro tem., fn. * concurred.
