Tentative Rulings

Case Number: ****2005    Hearing Date: December 08, 2020    Dept: 29

Benham v. Market Place Long Beach et al.

The Motion for a Trial Preference Pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 36, subd. (a) is DENIED.

A party seeking a trial preference under section 36, subdivision (a) must prove that (1) the party is over 70 years of age; (2) the party has a substantial interest in the action as a whole; and (3) the health of the party is such that a preference is necessary to prevent prejudicing the party’s interest in the litigation.

Here, the parties do not dispute that the Plaintiff is 75 years old. However, while the health of the Plaintiff may be established by a declaration of counsel [see Code Civ. Proc. ; 36.5], counsel’s declaration here is not sufficient to establish that Plaintiff’s health is such that a preference is necessary to prevent prejudicing the party’s interest in the litigation. Counsel’s declaration is based on conclusory statements with little information regarding degree of impairment or the alleged decline.

In any event, the Court notes that the trial is set for April 12, 2021. If the court were to grant the motion, the trial would be set for April 7, 2021. The parties should treat the April 12, 2021 date as a firm trial date.

Moving party is ordered to give notice.
