27 In its moving papers, Quality provides the court with three (3) separate basis
28 upon which to grant the motion as to all of Plaintiffs’ causes of action.

1 Additionally, Quality provides specific basis for granting the motion as to each of
2 the six (6) asserted causes of action. In opposition, Plaintiffs lob in a
3 “consolidated” brief which fails to meaningfully address any of the arguments in
4 support of Quality’s motion. And more importantly given Quality’s limited role as
5 nonjudicial foreclosure trustee, Plaintiffs fail to detail the actions that Quality
6 purportedly took which would remove it from the protections afforded under the
7 exhaustive statutory scheme governing nonjudicial foreclosures. Since Plaintiffs
8 failed to substantively oppose the motion, the court should grant the pleading.
9 THERE ARE NO FACTS THAT CAN BE ALLEGED WHICH WOULD
CURE THE DEFECTS IN THE PLEADING SO IT IS PROPER TO DENY
10 LEAVE TO AMEND.
11 Plaintiffs have already once amended their flawed pleading and even the

12 amendment fails to cure the defects. In their response, Plaintiffs provide no


additional facts or offer of prove as to facts that could or would be alleged to

14 remedy the defects. For this reason, when the court grants Quality’s motion, it is
15 proper to deny leave to amend.
16 CONCLUSION
17 Plaintiffs fail to state any cognizable claim against Quality. Moreover,
18 Plaintiffs were already given an opportunity to amend the pleadings and even with
19 the benefit of counsel, cannot produce facts to support their claims. Quality
20 requests that Plaintiffs’ FAC be dismissed forthwith, with prejudice.
