The following tentative rulings will become the ruling of the Court unless a party desires to be heard.  If you desire to appear and present oral argument as to any motion, YOU MUST notify the Court by telephone at (707) 521-6547, and all other opposing parties of your intent to appear by 4:00 p.m. today, Tuesday, October 18, 2016.  Parties in small claims cases and motions for claims of exemption are exempt from this requirement.

1. MCV-236999, Capital One v. Samii

Defendant’s motion for binding arbitration is denied.


Plaintiff shall prepare an order consistent with this ruling.
