LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1381, as introduced, Gallagher. Civil actions: quiet title.
Existing law permits an action to be brought to establish title against adverse claims to real or personal property or any interest in that property. Existing law grants the superior court complete jurisdiction over the parties to the action and the property described in the complaint.
This bill would make a technical, nonsubstantive change to this provision.
