Harper v. Los Angeles County Metropolitan

Motion to Continue Trial filed by the Defendant is GRANTED IN PART. The trial is continued to April 28, 2020 at 8:30 in Department 29. The final status conference is continued to April 17, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.

The trial date is firm. The parties are ordered to inform their witnesses, including expert witnesses, of the new trial date immediately. No further continuances should be expected.

Good cause has not been shown for a continuance to October 2020. Defendant claims that a continuance to October is necessary to complete outstanding discovery. Good cause is shown when a party shows an “excused inability to obtain essential testimony, documents, or other material evidence despite diligent efforts.” California Rule of Court Rule 3.1332. This case is almost three years old. Defendant has not shown an “excused inability” to obtain the purportedly required discovery and has not provided any evidence that it has acted diligently during the three years that this case has been pending.
