Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC688607    Hearing Date: January 28, 2020    Dept: 29

Lafianza v. Costco Wholesale Corporation

The Unopposed Motion for an Order Continuing Trial is GRANTED IN PART. The trial is continued to June 12, 2020 at 8:30 a.m. The final status conference is continued to May 29 at 10:00 a.m.

Good cause has not been shown for a continuance to September. The fact that Plaintiff has ongoing medical issues for which future treatment is expected is not good cause for a continuance of the trial. Experts can testify as to Plaintiff’s expected future treatment and prognosis. A continuance to June 12, 2020 is sufficient to allow the parties time to complete the outstanding discovery.

The trial date is firm. The parties are ordered to inform their witnesses of the new trial date immediately. No further continuances should be expected. The parties must diligently prepare for trial, including expert discovery, even if they are hopeful that the case will settle.

Discovery and all other trial related deadlines are to be determined based on the new trial date.

Moving party is ordered to give notice.
