Tentative Rulings Civil Law & Motion 4-12-24

  1. CL0001367     Christopher Pankey vs. [Confidential]

The parties may contact the Clerk’s Office for a copy of the tentative ruling.  Appearances are required. 

  1. CU0000090    Palleschi, Matthew, et al. v. Daniel Fraiman Construction, Inc., et al.

The motion of defendant Denton Cabinets, Inc. (Denton) to quash service of the complaint due to lack of in personam jurisdiction is granted. 

“When a defendant moves to quash service of process for lack of specific jurisdiction, the plaintiff has the initial burden of demonstrating facts justifying the exercise of jurisdiction. If the plaintiff meets this initial burden, then the defendant has the burden of demonstrating that the exercise of jurisdiction would be unreasonable.”  Snowney v. Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. (2005) 35 Cal.4th 1054, 1062 (quotations omitted).

“Generally speaking, a civil court gains jurisdiction over a person through one of four methods. There is the old-fashioned method—residence or presence within the state's territorial boundaries. There is minimum contacts—activities conducted or effects generated within the state's boundaries sufficient to establish a “presence” in the state so that exercising jurisdiction is consistent with “ ‘traditional notions of fair play and substantial justice.’ ” A court also acquires jurisdiction when a person participates in a lawsuit in the courthouse where it sits, either as the plaintiff initiating the suit.  Finally, a party can consent to personal jurisdiction, when it would not otherwise be available.

Global Packaging, Inc. v. Superior Court (2011) 196 Cal.App.4th 1623, 1629 (citations omitted).

This last jurisdictional basis is at issue herein.

“[F]orum and jurisdiction are distinct concepts with different legal implications.”  Id. at 1633.  “[A]n agreement to litigate in a certain location, a forum, [does not] necessarily imply an additional, separate agreement to submit to the jurisdiction of that forum, one in which personal jurisdiction would not otherwise be available[.] … Given the crucial role played by limits on jurisdiction in the American legal system, and in particular their importance as a preserver of individual liberty, … consenting to a location in and of itself [does not carry] with it a consent to personal jurisdiction.”  Id. at 1632.

Here, plaintiffs retained defendant Daniel Fraiman Construction to serve as the general contractor for a remodel of a single family residence located in Incline Village, Nevada.  Fraiman entered into subcontract agreements with a number of specialty subcontractors to

perform the work, including Denton.  Denton is a Nevada Corporation with its principal place of business in Reno, Nevada. Denton is a duly licensed Nevada contractor and does not hold a California contractor’s license.

The master contract between the general contractor and plaintiffs included section 12.f. (under payment terms) stating that “venue for any action arising under this Contract, shall be Nevada County.” (Italics added). 

The subcontract agreement between the general contractor and Denton included section 1, which, the court assumes arguendo, incorporated all terms of the master agreement by reference and made the same binding on Denton, including the venue provision. 

The subcontract also includes Paragraph 20 which expressly addresses both venue and jurisdiction for the subcontract indicating, in substance, that the parties consent to jurisdiction and venue in the city/state of the actual project.  (“The Parties further agree that any …  proceeding filed to enforce this Agreement, or arising out of the subject matter of this Agreement, shall be initiated and maintained only in the States of California or Nevada as determined by which state the Project is in. The venue for such an action shall be: if the Project is in California, the County of Nevada, Town of Truckee, or, if the Project is in Nevada, the County of Washoe, City of Reno. If any such action is removed to federal court for any reason, jurisdiction and venue shall be: if the Project is in California, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California in Sacramento, California, or, if the Project is in Nevada, the United States District Court for the District of Nevada in Reno, Nevada. Each of the Parties hereby consents to the jurisdictions of the foregoing courts and waives all objections to venue therein.).

On this record, plaintiff has not met its burden of proving facts justifying the exercise of jurisdiction over Denton.   The venue agreement for Nevada County, in this context, does not, by itself, imply an additional, separate agreement that Denton would submit to the jurisdiction of California.  There is insufficient evidence to establish that Denton consented to personal jurisdiction in California.  Denton’s motion to quash service is granted.

The court does not consider the argument under Code of Civil Procedure section 395.5 raised by Denton for the first time in its reply.

  1. CU0000562    Zeppenfeld, Don et al v. Reilley, Martin T. et al

The court, on its own motion, continues defendants’ motion for judgment on the pleadings until 24 May 2024, 10:00a.m.

Code of Civil Procedure section 683.160 provides in pertinent part:

(a) The judgment creditor shall serve a notice of renewal of the judgment on the judgment debtor. Service shall be made personally or by first-class mail and proof of service shall be filed with the court clerk. The notice shall be in a form prescribed by the Judicial Council and shall inform the judgment debtor that the judgment debtor has 60 days within which to make a motion to vacate or modify the renewal.

(b) Until proof of service is filed pursuant to subdivision (a), no writ may be issued, nor may any enforcement proceedings be commenced to enforce the judgment, except to the extent that the judgment would be enforceable had it not been renewed.

“[T]here is no specified time period within which the renewal of judgment must be served on the judgment debtor. The statute instead provides that the judgment creditor may not initiate any enforcement proceedings unless and until the judgment debtor has been served with the notice of renewal.”  Goldman v. Simpson (2008) 160 Cal.App.4th 255, 262, n. 4.

Code of Civil Procedure section 681.020, provides: “An assignee of a judgment is not entitled to enforce the judgment under this title unless an acknowledgment of assignment of judgment to that assignee has been filed or the assignee has otherwise become an assignee of record under Section 673.”

Here, there has been substantial compliance with the requirements of section 683.160(a) and 681.020.  The parties have extensively litigated the renewal of judgment at issue in the Sonoma County Superior Court, Judge Honigsburg has ordered renewal of the same (with directions to correct two errors) and the court has notified all parties (including defendant Reilly) of the same through counsel.  See 7 March 2024 ruling in Case No. SCV-226091; Malek v. Blue Cross of California (2004) 121 Cal.App.4th 44, 72.  At present, however, it does not appear that a corrected, renewal of judgment has issued (as directed) or been formally served on defendant Reilly. 

It also appears that a corrected assignment was lodged for filing with the Sonoma County Court on March 18, 2024, but has not presently been filed. 

In order to ensure strict compliance with these statutory requirements, this court concludes that a continuance is warranted in the interests of justice.  The parties shall provide a status report to the court no later than 10 May 2024. 

  1.  CU0000836   Price v. Kitchen

See Probate Tentative Rulings.

  1. CU21-085797    Koslin And Koslin Construction Inc. vs. GV Development LLC

The motion for summary judgment is continued on the court’s motion to May 9, 2024 at 10:00 a.m.                 

         6.   CU0000873    DeOrnellas v. General Motors

Defendant’s Demurrer to the Fifth Cause of Action for Fraud in the First Amended Complaint is overruled.  Plaintiffs have adequately pleaded all elements of a cause of action for fraudulent concealment including General Motor (GM)’s knowledge of defects in the transmission and their failure to disclose the same to purchasers.  See, e.g., Hoffman v. 162 North Wolfe LLC (2014) 228 Cal.App.4th 1178, 1185–1186.  Contrary to the suggestion of defendant, a transactional relationship is not required in California for the manufacturer to have a duty to disclose. See OCM Principal Opportunities v. CIBC World Markets (2007) 157. Cal.App.4th 835, 851. Moreover, plaintiffs were was not required to plead a fiduciary relationship because they have pled that GM had exclusive knowledge of material facts unknown to plaintiffs, and that GM actively concealed material facts from plaintiffs.  See Heliotis v. Schuman (1986) 181 Cal.App.3d 646, 651.

Defendant’s Motion to Strike Punitive Damages from the First Amended Complaint is denied.  Plaintiffs have adequately pled fraudulent concealment.  As such the FAC is sufficient to support a demand for punitive damages.


Civil Law and Motion Tentative Rulings  4/5/2024

  1. CL0001218    Capital One, N.A. vs. Shannon M. Rojko

Plaintiff’s unopposed motion to deem Requests for Admission admitted is granted unless defendant serves fully compliant answers prior to the scheduled hearing for this matter.

  1. CL0001460    Nevada County Housing Development vs. [Confidential]

The parties may contact the Clerk's office to receive a copy of the tentative ruling. 

  1. CU0000608    Yvonne Evans vs. County of Nevada

Defendant’s demurrer is overruled.

“Government Code section 12940, subdivision (h) (section 12940(h)) … forbids employers from retaliating against employees who have acted to protect the rights afforded by the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) ( Gov. Code, § 12900 et. seq).”  Yanowitz v. L'Oreal USA, Inc. (2005) 36 Cal.4th 1028, 1035.  “Section 12940(h) makes it an unlawful employment practice for an employer “to discharge, expel, or otherwise discriminate against any person because the person has opposed any practices forbidden under this part or because the person has filed a complaint, testified, or assisted in any proceeding under this part.” Ibid.  “[I]n order to establish a prima facie case of retaliation under the FEHA, a plaintiff must show (1) he or she engaged in a “protected activity,” (2) the employer subjected the employee to an adverse employment action, and (3) a causal link existed between the protected activity and the employer's action.”  Id. at 1042.

First, plaintiff argues that plaintiff lacks standing because she was not an employee of the county at the time of the alleged retaliation. The court disagrees.  Section 12940(h) prohibits an employer from retaliating against “any person because the person has opposed any practices forbidden under this part or because the person has filed a complaint, testified, or assisted in any proceeding under this part.” (Italics added.) Reasonably construed, this prohibition of retaliation against “any person,” includes former employees allegedly subjected to retaliation.  To the knowledge of the court, no published California decision has considered whether this subdivision applies to retaliation against a former employee.  “California courts often look to Title VII in interpreting the FEHA.” State Dept. of Health Services v. Superior Court (2003) 31 Cal.4th 1026, 1040.  The United States Supreme Court has concluded that former employees are protected from retaliation under the analogous protections of Title VII.  See In Robinson v. Shell Oil Co. (1997) 519 U.S. 337, 339 (construing statutory term employee).  The court follows this authority in this context.

Second, defendant argues that plaintiff has inadequately alleged exhaustion of administrative remedies.   Not so.  “Under the FEHA, the employee must exhaust the administrative remedy provided by the statute by filing a complaint with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (Department) and must obtain from the Department a notice of right to sue in order to be entitled to file a civil action in court based on violations of the FEHA.”  Morgan v. Regents of University of Cal. (2000) 88 Cal.App.4th 52, 63.  “The timely filing of an administrative complaint is a prerequisite to the bringing of a civil action for damages under the FEHA.”  Ibid.  Effective January 1, 2020, the applicable limitation period for the filing of a complaint with the Department is three years.  See Gov. Code § 12960(e)(5).  At bar, plaintiff alleges she was denied promotion by the auto auction company on March 15, 2019.  Plaintiff’s complaint includes a Department right to sue letter dated March 15, 2022.  As such, timely exhaustion has been properly pled.

Third, defendant argues that plaintiff has not properly plead a prima facie case.  The court is not persuaded.  Plaintiff adequately alleges that she engaged in a “protected activity.” Plaintiff alleges that she sought and obtained an order granting a new trial in Case No. CU15-081064, the Evans’ [previous employment] discrimination case against the County of Nevada,” and that defendant “orchestrated … improper garnishment orders in retaliation” for the same. Liberally construed, defendant has alleged that by seeking a new trial in the previous lawsuit she was assisting in a proceeding under FEHA.

 Plaintiff also adequately alleges that defendant, her former employer, subjected her to an adverse employment action.  She alleges that “it is likely” she was refused promotion by the auto auction company (her subsequent employer) because of defendant’s wrongful garnishment.  See, e.g., Hillig v. Rumsfeld (10th Cir. 2004) 381 F.3d 1028, 1033 (“an act by an employer that does more than de minimis harm … to a plaintiff's future employment prospects can … be regarded as an ‘adverse employment action’”); Hashimoto v. Dalton (9th Cir. 1997) 118 F.3d 671,  675 (“There is little question that the dissemination of adverse employment references can constitute a violation of Title VII if motivated by discriminatory intent. …  [Employer’s] dissemination of … negative job reference is an actionable employment decision.”)(quotations omitted).

For the reasons noted above, plaintiff has also alleged that a causal link existed between the protected activity by plaintiff and the ultimate employer action by the auto auction company. 

  1. CU0000712    SANDRA DEMARA vs. DOUGLAS VERNON

Defendant’s motion to continue trial is granted.  The court finds good cause has been shown for the continuance due to a party's excused inability to obtain essential testimony, documents, or other material evidence despite diligent efforts. See California Rules of Court, rule 3.1332(c)(6).  The currently set Trial, PTC, and MSC dates are vacated.

New dates are as follows:

Mandatory Settlement Conference:  October 21, 2024, 10:00 a.m. in Dept. 6;

Pre-Trial Conference: November 1, 2024, 11:00 a.m. in Dept. 6;

Trial Date:  November 12, 2024, 9:00 a.m. in Dept. 6 (5 day jury trial).


Civil Law and Motion Tentative Rulings  3-29-24

  1. CU0000728    Jessica Swindle vs. Blue Eagle Contracting, Inc.

Plaintiff’s unopposed motion to continue trial due to unavailability of counsel is granted.  The currently set trial and related dates are vacated.  A CMC is set for 5-13-24 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept 6 to select a new trial date.

  1. CU0001011    Joel Franks vs. Nationstar Mortgage LLC

On the court’s own motion, Plaintiff’s Writ of Mandamus is stricken.  Plaintiff, as a Personal Representative in civil litigation, is not permitted to appear in pro per unless Plaintiff is also a licensed attorney.  Hansen v. Hansen (2003) 114 CA4th 618, 621

On the court’s own motion, an OSC re sanctions is issued as to attorney Safora Nowrouzi, directing counsel to submit the MC-053 Order After Hearing for judicial signature and service on all parties to the action, as ordered in the court’s prior ruling on the motion to be relieved as counsel.  Such OSC is set for May 24, 2024, at 9:00 am in Dept. 6.

Additionally, an OSC re striking the complaint is hereby set for May 24, 2024, at 9:00 am in Dept. 6, is directed to the pro per plaintiff.  As a personal representative cannot appear in pro per in civil litigation (need cite), the complaint shall be stricken if Plaintiff does not obtain counsel.

  1. CU0001127    In the Matter of ACRT Pacific LLC

The Petition to Confirm Arbitration Award is granted.  Judgment shall enter against Loggers Unlimited Inc, in favor of ACRT Pacific LLC, in the amount of $309,854.61.

 CU0001159    Jon Landon vs. Harmony Ridge Resorts et al

Defendant’s demurrer is sustained and overruled as follows:

            First Cause of Action:  Sustained with leave to amend.  Plaintiff has not alleged a protected activity, or a prohibited activity that plaintiff refused to take part in.

            Second Cause of Action:  Sustained with leave to amend.  Plaintiff has not clearly alleged that his job performance was satisfactory.

            Third Cause of Action:  Sustained with leave to amend.  Plaintiff’s complaint lacks any information about dates or frequency of incidents and accusations that would allow the court to evaluate the totality of the circumstances.  Further, defendant’s accusations of a wide-ranging and successful criminal enterprise masterminded by plaintiff would appear to be inconsistent with age discrimination.

            Fifth Cause of Action:  overruled.  The litany of crimes defendant accuses plaintiff of committing, which are also ethical violations for a CPA, are sufficiently extreme and outrageous, and plaintiff has alleged resulting emotional distress.

            Sixth Cause of Action:  Sustained with leave to amend.  Plaintiff’s allegations in par 41 would be sufficient to plead a contract of continued employment, except that plaintiff has pled that defendant promised to leave himself 10% of stock in his own will, conditioned on plaintiff’s continued employment.

            Defendant’s motion to strike is denied as moot as to items 1-3.  The motion is denied as to the portions of the complaint outlined in item 4 of the motion to strike:  the allegations are relevant to plaintiff’s allegations that defendant began to criticize him irrationally.  Any issues of confusion or prejudice to the jury can be addressed by the court at the time of trial.

            Plaintiff shall file and serve an Amended Complaint within 10 days of service of Defendant’s Order After Hearing.

  1. CU21-085797 KOSLIN AND KOSLIN  vs. GV DEVELOPMENT

On the court’s own motion, this matter is continued to 4-12-2024 at 10:00 a.m. in Dept 6.  The court’s file does not contain Plaintiff’s response to moving Defendant’s separate statement, although Defendant’s reply references it.  Plaintiff shall file such document by 5 p.m. on March 29, 2024.


3-22-24 Law & Motion Tentative Rulings

  1. CL0001406     The CBM Group Inc. vs. Melissa Farnsworth
    Defendant’s February 12, 2024 motion to strike the entire complaint is dropped as moot.  An Amended Complaint was filed February 21, 2024 and an answer thereto was filed February 29, 2024.

2.         CL12-079031  Hills Flat Lumber Company vs. Matthew Vickers

The February 6, 2024 motion to intervene by MidFirst Bank is granted.  The February 6, 2024 motion to expunge lis pendens is continued for hearing until May 17, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. on the court’s motion. 

Because leave to intervene is granted by the court, the intervenor shall serve a copy of the order, or notice of the court's decision or order, granting leave to intervene and the pleadings in intervention in accordance with the specific requirements of  Code of Civil Procedure section 387(e)(2)(B).  Specifically, service must be “in the same manner for service of summons pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 415.10) of Chapter 4 of Title 5 of Part 2” of the Code of Civil Procedure Code and must be consistent with the requirements for service of a corporation under Code of Civil Procedure section 416.10.  Plaintiff’s former attorney is deceased; thus, service on counsel’s office address is insufficient.  Moreover, service of process on a corporation by mailing a document to its business premises is insufficient.

The  motion to expunge shall be renoticed for hearing on the date noted and served in the same manner as the order permitting intervention.

3.         CU0000771     State Farm General vs. Steven Null Chu

Defendant’s February 26, 2024 motion to stay is granted in part and denied in part. 

The court has weighed and considered the following factors: (1) The limited extent to which the civil action implicates the defendant’s Fifth Amendment rights (especially given that the criminal action relates to an alleged marijuana operation on a property different from the alleged marijuana operation and property at issue in the civil action; (2) the plaintiff’s significant interest in proceeding expeditiously with the civil action, and the potential prejudice the plaintiff could suffer with respect to the loss of evidence or fading of recollections by the passage of time; (3) the moderate burden imposed by the civil action on the defendant who will need, with the assistance of counsel, to make thoughtful decisions as to how to protect his rights in connection with both proceedings); (4) the court’s significant interest in managing its docket and in using judicial resources effectively;  and (5) the public’s significant interest in the timely resolution of both civil and criminal litigation. (See In re Alpha Media Resort Inv. Cases (2019) 39 Cal.App.5th 1121, 1132.)  On balance, the court believes that a limited stay is warranted to protect and balance the interests of all parties.  All discovery is permitted with one exception.  No deposition of Mr. Chu shall be conducted absent further authorization from the court.  Defendant may seek leave of the court to take this deposition once it has reasonably completed all other possible discovery.  Defendant, of course, may raise any objections to discovery permitted by law, including invocation of his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent if he chooses.  The parties shall meet and confer regarding a proposed protective order to prevent dissemination of discovery to the public prior to trial and addressing how discovery shall be filed under seal with the court if necessary as part of any pre-trial proceedings. 

4.         CU0000818     Edward Hoffman et al vs. Forest River, Inc. et al.
The court reconsiders and vacates its previous December 1, 2023 order granting Defendants’ unopposed October 3, 2023 motion for a stay.  The court now denies Defendants’ opposed motion for a stay. 

Plaintiffs allege the following claims against Defendants (1) breach of  written and implied warranties under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (claims one and two), violations of the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act (claims three and four), and violation of the Consumers Legal Remedies Act (“CLRA”)(count five).  Defendants argue that Plaintiffs’ claims are subject to a mandatory forum selection clause and request that this action be stayed to allow Plaintiffs to file their lawsuit in Indiana.  As part of the motion, Defendants offer to stipulate that the Song-Beverly Act and the CLRA will apply to Plaintiffs’ claims should they file an action in Indiana.  The court is not persuaded. 

“A mandatory forum selection clause such as the one at issue here is generally given effect unless enforcement would be unreasonable or unfair, and the party opposing enforcement of the clause ordinarily bears the burden of proving why it should not be enforced.  (Handoush v. Lease Finance Group, LLC (2019) 41 Cal.App.5th 729, 734.)  “However, the burden is ‘reversed when [, as here,] the claims at issue are based on unwaivable rights created by California statutes [in which case] the party seeking to enforce the forum selection clause bears the burden to show litigating the claims in the contractually designated forum “will not diminish in any way the substantive rights afforded ... under California law. ” ’ ” (Ibid.)

 “[A] comparison is necessary to determine whether enforcing a forum selection …clause would violate California's public policy embodied in its governing statutes.”  (Verdugo v. Alliantgroup, L.P. (2015) 237 Cal.App.4th 141, 157.)  “As explained above, a defendant seeking to enforce a mandatory forum selection clause bears the burden to show enforcement will not in any way diminish the plaintiff's unwaivable statutory rights.”  (Ibid.)By definition, this showing requires the defendant to compare the plaintiff's rights if the clause is not enforced and the plaintiff's rights if the clause is enforced. Indeed, a defendant can meet its burden only by showing the foreign forum provides the same or greater rights than California, or the foreign forum will apply California law on the claims at issue.” (Ibid.)

Defendants have not met their burden in this case. Plaintiffs contend that “a transfer to Indiana will always result in a diminution of the California consumer’s rights, including but not limited to waiver of jury trial, shortened statutes of limitations, and reduced, restricted, and/or otherwise unavailable remedies.”  Defendants have failed to establish that an Indiana forum provides the same or greater rights than California, or that Indiana will apply all applicable California law on the claims at issue without any diminution of Plaintiffs’ rights under California law. 

On the court’s own motion, a case management conference is set for Monday, April 15, 2024, at 9:00 a.m. in Dept. 6.

5.         CU21-085693 Nicole Wakus et al. vs. Michael Smallwood
Plaintiff’s unopposed February 26, 2024 motion to compel CalFire to comply with the subpoena for production of documents is granted.  Sanctions are awarded in the amount of $1050.00 under Code of Civil Procedure section 2025.450(g)(1) given that there has been no showing that CalFire acted with substantial justification or that sanctions would be unjust under the circumstances. 


3-15-24 Law & Motion Tentative Rulings

  1. CL0000840     Charles M. Hilkey vs. [Confidential]

The parties may contact the clerk’s office to obtain a copy of the tentative ruling.  Appearances are required for oral argument.  See Local Rule 4.05.3.

  1. CL0001080     JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. vs. Ryan Szalankiewicz

Defendant’s Motion to Set Aside Default and Default Judgment is denied. 

Evidence Code section 647 creates a legal presumption that the facts stated in a proof of service filed by a registered process server are true and that the service of process is valid.  Here, Defendant does not contend that he was not at the address in question on the date of service.  Defendant also does not state that the person described is not him.  Thus, Defendant has failed to overcome the presumption that he was validly served.

     
In addition or in the alternative, Defendant contends that he “found” the documents on November 16, 2023.  However, Default was not entered until November 30, 2023.  Defendant provides no explanation as to why he failed to file a responsive pleading after he “found” the documents.

Therefore, the motion to set aside default and default judgment is denied.  Defendant has failed to demonstrate mistake, inadvertence, or excusable neglect as required by Code of Civil Procedure section 473(b).

  1. CU0000128    Douglas Schultz v. Marianne Stevenson, et al.

    Defendant’s Motion to Change Venue to Family Court is denied.

Defendant urges this court to transfer this matter to the family law department and suggests, among other things, that Plaintiff lacks the ability to pursue this partition action under Code of Civil Procedure section 872.210, which provides, in pertinent part, that “an action between spouses or putative spouses for partition of their community or quasi-community property or their quasi-marital interest in property may not be commenced or maintained under this title [10.5].”  Resolution of this issue requires the court to consider whether it will recognize the decree of divorce of the parties by the Dubai Court of First Instance in the United Arab Emirates (“UAE”).

The United States is not a party to the Hague Convention on the Recognition of Divorces and Legal Separations, done at the Hague, June 1, 1970 (978 U.N.T.S. 399).  Nevertheless, “[t]he courts of this state may, but are not required to, execute the judgment of a foreign nation as a matter of comity. The doctrine of comity prescribes that a court of this nation recognize the judgment of a court of a foreign nation when the foreign court had proper jurisdiction and enforcement does not prejudice the rights of United States citizens or violate domestic public policy.”   In re Stephanie M. (1994) 7 Cal.4th 295, 314, citing Hilton v. Guyot (1895) 159 U.S. 113, 202–203; Victrix S.S. Co., S.A. v. Salen Dry Cargo A.B. (2d Cir.1987) 825 F.2d 709, 713.  “Extension or denial of comity is discretionary….”  Ibid.

Defendant urges the court to not recognize the divorce decree of the Dubai court.  Per Defendant, the decision of the UAE court, based on Sharia law, prejudiced her rights and is contrary to California public policy.  Defendant specifically contends that she was denied a fair right to participate in those proceedings.  She further contends, in summary, that Sharia law is unequal, discriminatory and unfair with respect to spousal support, division of property, and custody rights.  The court is not persuaded.

As a preliminary matter, Defendant does not argue, and there is no evidence to suggest, that the UAE court lacked proper jurisdiction.  Moreover, it should be noted that the UAE court ultimately decided only two issues: dissolution and child custody.  There is no evidence to suggest that the Dubai court made any decisions with respect to either spousal support or division of property.

Secondly, the UAE specifically permits “non-citizens” such as Defendant to implement the law of their home country in dissolution matters pending in the UAE.   Here, the record presented establishes that Defendant, through counsel, participated in the UAE proceedings, and apparently did not request implementation of California law rather than UAE law in connection with the proceedings.  Parties, such as Defendant “who fail to avail themselves of the rights and safeguards which the law offers them cannot complain when such failure results in their [potential] disadvantage.” (See Marin Mun. Water Dist. v. North Coast Water Co. (1919) 40 Cal.App. 260, 263; see also Huntington v. Huntington (1953) 120 Cal.App.2d 705, 710 [if defendant “did participate in [a foreign divorce] action ... the defendant is inhibited from making a collateral attack upon the decree”]; Chaudry v. Chaudry (N.J.Super.Ct.App.Div.1978) 159 N.J.Super. 566, 576 [comity warranted where “[a]n analysis of the opinion of the appellate court in Pakistan satisfies us that the validity of the divorce was amply litigated and determined there in that country.”].)

Thirdly, and of great importance, the narrow issue presently before the court is whether to recognize the judgment of dissolution by the Dubai court and whether the parties are still spouses or putative spouses for purposes of Code of Civil Procedure section 872.210.  The court need not and does not decide whether to recognize the Dubai court’s judgment related to child custody.  (And as noted before, the Dubai court made no decision with respect to spousal support or property division.)  Defendant has failed to establish how recognition of the judgment of divorce has or will prejudice her rights or violate California public policy.  There has been no showing that application of UAE law and a judgment of divorce thereunder “is so offensive to our public policy as to be ‘prejudicial to recognized standards of morality and to the general interests of the citizens [of California] ....’ ”  (Wong v. Tenneco, Inc. (1985) 39 Cal.3d 126, 135–136.)  Nor has there been a showing how that judgment as to marital status, standing alone, has prejudiced Defendant’s rights.

As such, in the exercise of discretion, the court recognizes the divorce decree as it relates to the status of marriage alone.  Plaintiff and Defendant are not married and are not spouses.  Accordingly, Civil Code section 872.210 does not bar the present action for partition.

Lastly, there is no other good cause demonstrated to transfer this matter to the family court on the basis of Family Code section 200, Rules of Court, rule 5.30 or Code of Civil Procedure section 473(a)(1).  
5.  CU0000180    John Cano v. Jordan Jianino

Defendant’s Motion to Compel Plaintiff to Submit to Three Independent Medical Examinations is granted, subject to these conditions.

First, Plaintiff has a right to an audio recording of the examination pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 2032.530.  All examinations by Defendant must be audio recorded and a copy of the same provided to Plaintiff.  Should there be a compliance issue, Plaintiff can file an appropriate motion hereafter. 

Second, Plaintiff has a right to demand a detailed written report under Code of Civil Procedure section 2032.610.  Should there be a compliance issue, Plaintiff may file an appropriate motion hereafter. 

Third, any other discovery request, including a request for raw data, is not properly before the court as part of this motion.  The parties shall meet and confer and, as necessary, can file appropriate motions if relief is requested.

Fourth, Defendant’s objections to inquires related to physical and sexual abuse, alcohol and drug abuse, and financial stressors are overruled.  These are appropriate inquires for evidence of or which may lead to evidence of other possible causes of Plaintiff’s alleged neurological, emotional and psychiatric injuries. 

Finally, each examination shall be limited to six hours, excluding breaks. 

  1. CU0000289    Douglas Johnson, et al., vs. Starbucks Corporation

    Defendant’s Motion to Continue Trial is granted.  The court finds good cause has been shown for the continuance due to the unavailability of counsel. (See California Rules of Court, rule 3.1332(c)(3).)  The currently set Trial, PTC, and MSC dates are vacated.

As to Request 4.1: Plaintiff must state whether she had an automobile policy in effect and if so, provide all requested details.

Motion to Quash

Plaintiff’s Motion to Quash Deposition Subpoenas is granted in part.  Each subpoena is limited to the time period commencing in 1979 (approximately one year prior to the earliest reported back surgery).  Plaintiff’s request for discretionary sanctions against Defendant is denied. Defendant acted in good faith and with substantial justification and, on balance, the requirements of the subpoena were not oppressive.

  1. CU0000673    County of Nevada v. Brooks Debruin, et al.

    Plaintiff’s unopposed Motion for Order of Discharge and Dismissal of Stakeholder is granted.  The court is in receipt of the Stipulated Judgment and will sign it as presented. 

    10.   CU0001011   Joel Franks vs. Nationstar Mortgage, LLC

Defendant’s demurrer is sustained in part.

As to the first and second causes of action under the Homeowner Bill of Rights (“HBOR”), the demurrer is sustained without leave to amend.  Plaintiff has not alleged facts to show that he is a “borrower” under the provisions of the HBOR, specifically, Civil Code section 2920.5(c)(1).  In the HBOR, “ a “borrower” means any natural person who is a mortgagor or trustor and who is potentially eligible for any federal, state, or proprietary foreclosure prevention alternative program offered by, or through, his or her mortgage servicer.” (Civil Code § 2920.5(c)(1).)  As Plaintiff has alleged only that his parents were the borrowers, and the HBOR does not extend protections to the Personal Representative of the Estate of a deceased borrower, he does not have standing.  Thus, the demurrer is sustained without leave to amend as to the first and second causes of action.

The remaining contentions of Defendant lack merit.  The HBOR does not require that tender be alleged or proved as a condition of relief.  The cases cited by Defendant on this point (Abdallah v. United Savings Bank (1996) 43 Cal.App.4th 1101, 1109; FPCI RE-HAB 01 10 v. E & G Investments, Ltd. (1989) 207 Cal.App.3d 1018, 1022; Arnolds Management Corp. v. 11 Eischen (1984) 158 Cal.App.3d 575, 574) pre-date the HBOR, which first went into effect in 2013.  Defendant’s assertions that they believed that they had spoken to the borrower cannot be addressed in a demurrer because they are neither in the complaint nor judicially noticeable.  “Because a demurrer challenges defects on the face of the complaint, it can only refer to matters outside the pleading that are subject to judicial notice.”  (Arce ex rel. Arce v. Kaiser Found. Health Plan, Inc. (2010) 181 Cal.App.4th 471, 556.)

As to the third cause of action, for violation of Business and Professions Code section 17200 (Unfair Business Practices), the demurrer is overruled.  “A general demurrer presents the … question … whether the plaintiff has alleged sufficient facts to justify any relief, notwithstanding superfluous allegations or claims for unjustified relief.”  (B & P Dev. Corp. v. City of Saratoga (1986) 185 Cal. App. 3d 949, 952-53.)  Plaintiff has alleged “unfair” business practices, including: accepting mortgage payments for six months after being informed that the borrowers were deceased, refusing payments on the grounds that the borrowers were deceased, adding late charges, and signing an alleged perjurious Declaration of Compliance with the Notice of Default.  Plaintiff has also alleged financial damages.  Plaintiff, thus, has sufficiently pled both prongs of a violation of section 17200: unfair practice and resultant financial harm.  Defendant’s factual assertions that contradict plaintiff’s allegations cannot be addressed in a demurrer.

Defendant shall file an answer to the sole remaining cause of action, the third cause of action, within 10 calendar days of receipt of the signed order after hearing. 

11.  CU0001057   Jeanette Enrichi Roppe v Michelle R. Szura

Plaintiff’s Motion to Strike the Rulings on the Motion for Summary Judgment and the Ruling on Demurrer is dropped.  Judge Anderson reviewed the proposed orders and objections thereto and has since signed the orders.  As such, the requested relief is moot.

Plaintiff’s Motion to Release Subpoenaed Documents is denied.  Evidence Code section 1560(d), provides, in part, that subpoenaed records delivered to the clerk of the court “shall remain sealed and shall be opened only at the time of trial … or other hearing, upon the direction of the judge … conducting the proceeding, in the presence of all parties who have appeared in person or by counsel at the trial … or hearing.  Records that are original documents and that are not introduced in evidence or required as part of the record shall be returned to the person or entity from whom received. Records that are copies may be destroyed.”  Thus, the documents shall be returned to the person or entity from whom they were received.  These records cannot be given to Plaintiff.

12. CU21-084358 Terry Brown vs. Micah Berry, et al.

Defendant’s unopposed Motion for Summary Judgment is granted.

Standard of Review

The function of a motion for summary judgment or adjudication is to allow a determination as to whether an opposing party cannot show evidentiary support for a pleading or claim and to enable an order of summary dismissal without the need for trial. (Aguilar v. Atlantic Richfield Co. (2001) 25 Cal.4th 826, 843.)  In analyzing motions for summary judgment, courts must apply a three-step analysis: (1) identify the issues framed by the pleadings to be addressed; (2) determine whether the moving party showed facts justifying a judgment in movant's favor; and (3) determine whether the opposing party demonstrated the existence of a triable, material issue of fact. (Sun v. City of Oakland (2008) 166 Cal.App.4th 1177, 1182-83; McGarry v. Sax (2008) 158 Cal.App.4th 983, 994; Hinesley v. Oakshade Town Center (2005) 135 Cal. App. 4th 289, 294.)

Requests for Judicial Notice

Defendant’s Request for judicial notice of Plaintiff’s Complaint is granted.

Background

Plaintiff sues various doctors, a medical hospital and a rehabilitation facility alleging medical malpractice.  Defendant Claydon files the present motion for summary judgment.

Analysis
The standard of care of a physician is that degree of skill and care usual in the profession in the place in which he or she practices. (4 Witkin, Summary of California Law, 8th Ed., p. 2778.) Whether a physician’s conduct was below the standard of care is a question that can only be resolved by expert testimony. This is because “[T]he standard of care against which the acts of a physician are to be measured is a matter peculiarly within the knowledge of experts; it presents the basic issue in a malpractice action and can only be proved by their testimony . . . .” (Landeros v. Flood (1976) 17 Cal.3d 399, 410.)  Expert testimony is also required to establish actual and legal causation in a medical malpractice action. The “plaintiff . . . must prove by reasonable medical probability based upon competent expert testimony that a defendant’s acts or omissions were a substantial factor” in causing the injury. (Bromme v. Pavitt (1992) 5 Cal.App.4th 1487, 1493.)

Defendant Claydon has presented the expert testimony of Thomas Chang, D.P.M., and Mario Luna, M.D., which establishes that Dr. Claydon’s care and treatment of decedent met the standard of care, and was not the legal cause of Plaintiff’s alleged injuries.

Plaintiff has failed to file any competing expert declarations and, in fact, has filed a notice of non-opposition to the present motion.

Thus, there is no triable issue of material fact and Defendant Claydon is entitled to judgment as a matter of law.

Conclusion

Defendant Claydon’s unopposed motion for summary judgment is granted.

  1. PR0000500     In Re Charles T. Whittlesey

The Petition to Administer Estate is continued to May 12, 2024 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept. 6.  There is no proof of publication. The Petition indicates at item 5(a)(7) that there is “issue of a predeceased child.”  The predeceased child appears to be Autumn (named in the will) but the Petition does not identify the name or address of the issue, that issue has not been served with the Notice or Petition, and the issue has not signed a waiver of bond.  Additionally, the Proof of Service of the Notice of Petition to Administer Estate is improperly executed.  The proof of service is signed by Petitioner; the papers must be mailed, and the proof of mailing signed, by someone who is not a party to the case.  Moreover, the date of mailing (item 4(a) on the proof of mailing) has not been filled out.

Respondent Ryan’s motion to dismiss the Petition for Recission of Will, Undue Influence, Fraud, Financial Elder Abuse, Quiet Title, And Cancellation Of Deed is denied.  Respondent has cited no authority for the court to dismiss the Petition.  The gravamen of the motion appears to be an argument about the Petitioner McBrien’s credibility and lack of evidence to support the Petition.  Those are arguments that moving party can make at trial; however, a trial on the Petition has not been set and not taken place.

  1. PR0000334     In the Matter of Thomas Wayne Kirk

The petition for temporary conservatorship of the person is granted; the petition for temporary conservatorship of the estate is denied without prejudice.  The application for appointment of counsel for conservatee is granted; Dewey Harpainter is hereby appointed as counsel.  The court notes that the petition and capacity declaration suggest that the conservatee has severe dementia, but the petition does not request neurocognitive powers.  If neurocognitive powers are sought, an amended petition for permanent conservatorship must be filed seeking those powers.  An amended capacity declaration must also be filed which addresses the ability of conservatee to attend a court hearing.  The hearing on the petition for appointment of a conservator of the person and estate is confirmed for May 17, 2024, at 9:00 a.m. in Dept. 6.

  1. PR0000475     In Re Bond, Michael

There are two competing Petitions; both appear to be in order and either one could be granted.  As this appears likely to be a contentious case, the court exercises its discretion to appoint Matt Quentmeyer, a private professional fiduciary, as executor of the estate.  No appearances are required.

  1. PR0000478     In Re: Miller, Mark F.

As the proposed Conservatee has objected to the Conservatorhip, Barry Pruett is appointed to represent the proposed Conservatee.  The court investigation fee is waived.  A Review hearing is set for 4-26-24 at 9:00 a. m. in Dept. 6.

  1. PR0000480     In Re Dentoni, Mary

Appearance required by petitioner Diana Dentoni as to the Petition to Remove Executor and the Petition for Probate.  It appears that the sole asset of the estate is a trust asset and not subject to probate, thus it appears that probate is unnecessary.  As to the Petition to Remove Executor, it appears that a Petition to Remove Trustee would be the more appropriate procedure.  The court notes that the Petition for Probate is incomplete, as the bond portions have been left blank and the proof of service has not been filled out correctly; additionally, there is no proof of publication and the DE-147 form has not been filed.

  1. PR0000492     In the Matter of Judith Marie Carver

The Petition is continued to 4-26-24 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept. 6.  There is no Notice or proof of service in the file, nor is there proof of publication.  No appearance is required.

  2. PR0000493   In the Matter of Walter T Branson (Petition for Probate)
