Ricketts v. McCormack, No. B210123

In a putative class action lawsuit against the County of Los Angeles and its registrar-recorder claiming failure to fulfill the statutory duties under Civil Code section 2941(c) to stamp and record reconveyances within two business days as required, trial court's judgment in favor of the defendants is affirmed as the indexing is a distinct function, separate from recording a document, and is not part of section 2941(c)'s stamp-and-record requirement.
