Change of Venue: Failure to Pay Transfer Fees Results in Dismissal

  The clerk’s mailing of a minute order to the parties is sufficient notice of the granting of a motion to transfer due to improper venue to start the 30-day clock running for payment of transfer fees. (Code of Civil Procedure section 399(a).) If transfer fees are not timely paid, dismissal is required.  (Southwestern Law School v. Benson (2019) BV032895, Appellate Division of the Los Angeles County Superior Court.)
