    Case Dismissed?

    I live in a foreclosed house I was renting in California. I answered an unlawful detainer and had a herring scheduled. Legal aid said I had a good case because of several things, the main one being utilities were shut off. The lease I had with the foreclosed owner was a month to month,

    My question is that I received in the mail a request for dismissal from the plaintiffs attorney. Does this mean I don't have to go to court now and if not, what happens next?

    Thank you in advance for your input.

    No that is not what it means. This is just a request for the case to be dismissed. You can answer this request with your own motion or just wait and let a judge make his decision.
    I am not a lawyer, this is not legal advice.
