Appearances required.

3.     SCV-258046, Atallah v Patel

 

Defendant’s motion for relief from waiver of jury trial is granted, without prejudice to Plaintiff’s right to raise the issue of whether there are issues triable by a jury by way of in limine motion.  (See, Rutter, Civil Trials and Evidence, § 4.154.)

 

4.     SCV-259109, Turpel v Rummonds: 

 

The motion to amend is granted.

 

 

5.     SCV-259119, Pahlavan v Pahlavan:  

 

This hearing has been continued several times.  The first continuance was to give Defendant the opportunity to respond to Plaintiff’s late-filed opposition.  At the last hearing, Plaintiff requested a continuance so she could request a court reporter and indicated that she intended to present additional evidence in response to the reply brief.  Based on what has been presented so far, the court’s tentative ruling is to grant the special motion to strike.  The court will reserve a final ruling until the hearing and it can hear Plaintiff's request to present further evidence.

 

 

6.     SCV-259836, Drimauso v Direct Flow Medical, Inc.:  

 

The unopposed motion to stay is granted.
