EXPLANATION

Pursuant to the Rules on Civil Procedure, the foregoing Motion to Dismiss was
served on counsel for the plaintiff and this Honorable Regional Trial Court of

in the office of the counsel for respondent, and due to the considerable distance
between the Cities of Calamba and Quezon City, and personal service would have
resulted in the Motion not being filed on time to the detriment of the parties.
