Coretta MCMILLON and Roosevelt Norman, Plaintiffs-Appellees v. EUROPEAN SERVICE, INC. d/b/a European Motors and Ali Moghimi, Defendants-Appellants
Decided: March 31, 2021
Before MOORE, GARRETT, STONE, JJ.
G. ALI MOGHIMI Appellant, In Proper Person RONALD KIP GATES Counsel for Appellees, Coretta McMillon and Roosevelt Norman ARTHUR GILMORE, JR. Counsel for Appellees/ Intervenors, Car Solutions, Inc., Tracey Smedley, and Jahangir J. Nejad
Mr. Ali Moghimi filed this untimely appeal seeking review of the trial court's dismissal of his petition for damages for wrongful seizure. The matter was placed on our docket in error. The record reflects that the clerk of the Monroe City Court mailed notice of signing of judgment to Mr. Moghimi on October 22, 2019, and that Mr. Moghimi did not move for new trial. Mr. Moghimi did not file a motion for appeal until January 17, 2020, a total of 87 days after the mailing of notice of judgment. “An appeal from a judgment rendered by a city court or parish court may be taken only within 10 days from the date of the judgment or from the service of notice of the judgment, when such notice is necessary.” La. C.C.P. art. 5002.
Accordingly, this appeal is DISMISSED.
