LAW & MOTION TENTATIVE RULINGS

DEPARTMENT 23

JUDGE SHELLY J. AVERILL

October 18, 2019 at 9:30 a.m.

 

 

  1. SFL64823-MARRIAGE OF ROSSINI:  Petitioner/Mother’s (hereinafter “Mother”) request to change venue to Sacramento County pursuant to CCP§397(c) is GRANTED.  Mother’s declaration contains sufficient detail to identify prospective witnesses in a custody or visitation matter to include the teachers, coaches and church youth group leaders of the children.  All of these potential witnesses are located in Sacramento which would require an approximate two (2) hour commute to Sonoma County.  Mother also identified the children as possible witnesses. Given the age of the children it is not unusual for a CCRC to interview the children in conjunction with any requested modification to custody or visitation orders.  Mother has described with particularity the inconvenience of the children in traveling to Sonoma County for the purpose of being witnesses. 
  2. SFL078814-MARRIAGE OF DONNELLY:  The motion of Thomas Wright to be relieved as counsel for Respondent/Wife pursuant to CCP §284(2) is GRANTED.
