Following Tsasu LLC v. U.S. Bank Trust, N.A. (2021) 62 Cal.App.5th 704, this decision applies CCP 764.060 according to its clear terms, holding that the lien of Ridec an encumbrancer for value and without actual or constructive knowledge could not be expunged in favor of a defendant named in a prior in rem quiet title suit but never properly served.  The statute expressly protects subsequent purchasers and encumbracers for value and without notice.  It is constitutional and cannot be avoided by courts in favor of what they believe is better public policy.
