                                                                                                                  PETITION FOR REVIEW OF APPEAL COURT'S DECISION

Petitioner James Constant, in propria persona, respectfully petitions this honorable court for review of the appeal court's decision. On 11/16/10, the Court of Appeal, Fourth Appellate District, Division Two Opinion affirmed the trial court's judgments in Cases E049886 (costs) and E049988 (Motion to Set Aside Judgment under Code of Civil Procedure section 663). The appeal court remained silent on petitioner's Motion to Void Judgment under Code of Civil Procedure section 473(d).1

I. STATEMENT OF ISSUES PRESENTED FOR REVIEW

1. When presented with a Motion to Void a Judgment pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 473(d), as in EXHIBIT 1, does a court have discretion to remain silent and avoid addressing its fundamental jurisdiction in writing?

2. Does the evidence presented in EXHIBIT 1 show that the judgment in this case is void for precluding petitioner from participating in his case at trial?

3. When silent on a first motion pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 473(d), does a court have discretionary powers to certify its decision on a second motion pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 663, as an unpublished opinion pursuant to California Rules of Court rule 8.1115?

4. Shall this court determine the motion presented in EXHIBIT 1 sua sponte without further delay?
