[TENTATIVE] ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO CONTINUE TRIAL

Dept. 31

1:30 p.m.

February 10, 2020

Plaintiffs, Jacqueline and Hudson Cohn (mother and son) filed this action against Defendants, William Sebastian Higgins, Hillary Susan Rose, and Kevin P. Higgins for damages arising out of an automobile accident. The accident occurred on 3/17/16, and Plaintiffs filed suit on 12/15/16. The original trial date was 6/15/18. The Court has twice continued the trial date per ex parte application.

At this time, Defendants move to continue the trial date from 4/07/20 for sixty days in order to complete discovery concerning Plaintiffs’ claimed damages. Defendants provide evidence that Plaintiffs did not timely respond to discovery, and when they served substantive responses, on 1/03/20, the responses revealed a number of treating psychologists not previously disclosed. Defendants also provide evidence that they attempted to obtain these doctors’ records through Plaintiffs’ authorization, but Plaintiffs did not sign the authorization forms; thus, Defendants are in the process of subpoenaing the records. Notably, no party opposes this motion.

The Court finds the excused failure to timely complete discovery constitutes good cause to continue the trial date and grants the motion. The 4/07/20 trial date is advanced to today’s date and continued to Tuesday, 6/09/20 at 8:30 a.m. in Department 31 of the Spring Street Courthouse. The 3/23/20 FSC date is advanced to today’s date and continued to 5/26/20 at 10:00 a.m. in Department 31. All discovery and expert cut-off dates are continued to reflect the new trial date.

Defendants are ordered to give notice.

Parties who intend to submit on this tentative must send an email to the court at sscdept31@lacourt.org indicating intention to submit on the tentative as directed by the instructions provided on the court website at www.lacourt.org.  If the department does not receive an email indicating the parties are submitting on the tentative and there are no appearances at the hearing, the motion may be placed off calendar. If a party submits on the tentative, the party’s email must include the case number and must identify the party submitting on the tentative.
