Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC679934    Hearing Date: March 29, 2021    Dept: 48

[TENTATIVE] ORDER RE MOTIONS IN LIMINE

Plaintiff’s MIL No. 1

Plaintiff California Décor seeks an order excluding a retrial of issues from Phase 1. Defendants argue that under European Beverage, Inc. v. Superior Court (1996) 43 Cal.App.4th 1211, all of the issues from Phase 1 must be relitigated because the judge who decided Phase 1 retired. Plaintiff argues that case only applies where the judge will be the trier of fact in both phases of the trial but here the second phase will be tried by the jury.

The holding in European Beverage is, “Where there has been an interlocutory judgment rendered by one judge, and that judge then becomes unavailable to decide the remainder of the case, a successor judge is obliged to hear the evidence and make his or her own decisions on all issues, including those that had been tried before the first judge . . .” (Id. at p. 1214.) This rule is inapplicable here because a judge will not “decide the remainder of the case.” A jury will decide Phase 2 of the case.

The motion is GRANTED.

Plaintiff’s MIL No. 2

Plaintiff California Décor seeks to exclude evidence or refence to Plaintiff’s attorney Lisa Jackson’s bar record regarding disciplinary action in Connecticut in 2005 and in California ending in 2010. Plaintiff argues that evidence is irrelevant and prejudicial. Defendant argues Jackson is a witness regarding the drafting of the lease and so her credibility is at issue.

Phase 1 of the trial determined the lease was valid and enforceable. Therefore, Jackson’s credibility as a witness is not relevant.

The motion is GRANTED.
