Case Number: 18STLC12677    Hearing Date: September 10, 2020    Dept: 26

PETITION TO APPROVE COMPROMISE OF PENDING ACTION

(Prob. Code §§ 3500, 3600, et seq.; CCP § 372)

TENTATIVE RULING:

Petition of Kyeshia Smith to Approve Minor’s Compromise of Claim on behalf of minor Plaintiff Kywun Casey is GRANTED.

On October 10, 2018, Plaintiffs Diana Smith, Kyeshia Smith, and minor Plaintiffs Kywun Casey, Khloe Smith and Destiny Speaker, by and through their guardian ad litem Kyeshia Smith, filed the instant action for motor vehicle negligence against Defendants Susan Michelle Beck and Bradley L. Beck (“Defendants”). On October 24, 2018, the Court granted Kyeshia Smith’s (hereinafter “Petitioner”) application to be appointed the Minor Plaintiffs’ guardian ad litem.

Petitioner filed the instant Petition to Approve Compromise of Disputed Claim on Behalf of Minor Plaintiff Kywun Casey on June 11, 2020. To date, no opposition has been filed.

Court approval is required for all settlements of a minor’s claim. (See Prob. Code §§ 3500, 3600, et seq.; Code Civ. Proc., § 372.) “[A] minor, a person who lacks legal capacity to make decisions, . . . shall appear either by a guardian or conservator of the estate or by a guardian ad litem appointed by the court in which the action or proceeding is pending, or by a judge thereof, in each case.” (CCP § 372, emphasis added.)

Having reviewed the Petition, the Court finds it is complete and provides for a reasonable settlements to minor Plaintiff Kywun Casey based the injuries sustained and future prognosis. Proposed orders have been filed concurrently. Therefore, the Petition to Approve Minor’s Compromise of Disputed Claim is GRANTED.

Moving party to give notice.
