1 March 11, 2004. The notice does not sate a cause. On May 17, 2004 an Unlawful Detainer was
2 filed by the landlord against the Defendant pursuant to the said sixty day notice. The Plaintiff cannot

5 permits only minor amendments to be made, and furthermore, that a new cause of action cannot be
6 added unless the landlord can offer proof that a second sixty day notice was served alleging a different
7 cause of action than that stated in the complaint.
8 On Wednesday, June 9, 2004, the Plaintiff testified that she was in court “because [she] served
9 a 60-day notice because [she] wanted the apartment back. The Plaintiff further testified that she
10 [had] her nephew and [her] sister living with [her] and [she] needed the apartment because [her]
11 house [was] not big enough.” These purported grounds are not a basis upon which the Court can
12 award judgment in favor of the Plaintiff.
15 NEWS BROADCAST/ADMISSION SHOULD BE ADMITTED INTO EVIDENCE
16 At the time of trial the Plaintiff admitted to making statements to the news agency. She does
