[TENATATIVE] ORDER CONDITIONALLY GRANTING PETITION TO APPROVE MINOR’S COMPROMISE

Dept. 3

1:30 p.m.

December 4, 2019

Plaintiff filed this action against Defendant for damages arising out of a fall at Defendant’s school. Plaintiff is now seventeen years of age, but was just shy of fifteen years old when the accident occurred; Plaintiff was in a class for students with special needs at Defendant’s school. Plaintiff suffered two broken ankles as a result of the fall, continues to have pain when he walks long distances, and may need additional surgery in the future.

At this time Plaintiff, by and through his GAL and attorney of record, has agreed to settle all claims with Defendant for the total amount of $582,000. If the settlement is approved, $26,137.64 will be used for medical expenses, $203, 700 for attorneys’ fees, and $19,005.88 for costs of suit. $300,000 will be used to purchase a single premium deferred annuity, and the remaining $33,156.48 will be placed in a blocked account.

The Court has reviewed the settlement and finds it fair and reasonable. The Court also finds the 35% contingency fee fair and reasonable concerning the difficulty and duration of the litigation.

Per CRC 7.952, Petitioner and Plaintiff must appear at the hearing unless the Court finds good cause to excuse their appearance. Plaintiff is seventeen years old, and the Court will therefore require him to personally appear and testify. If Plaintiff’s special needs are such that he cannot meaningfully appear and testify, Petitioner should be prepared to address those needs at the time of the hearing. If the Court is satisfied with Plaintiff’s and Petitioner’s testimony at the hearing, the petition will be granted.

Petitioner is ordered to give notice.

Dated this 4th day of December, 2019

Hon. Jon Takasugi

Judge of the Superior Court
