§ 6501. Notice of pendency; constructive notice. A notice of pendency
may be filed in any action in a court of the state or of the United
States in which the judgment demanded would affect the title to, or the

proceeding brought to recover the possession of real property. The
pendency of such an action is constructive notice, from the time of
