Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC685601    Hearing Date: December 26, 2019    Dept: 4B

[TENTATIVE] ORDER RE: PETITION TO APPROVE MINOR’S COMPROMISE

Claimant Dimas Enamorado (“Claimant”), a minor, by and through his Guardian Ad Litem, Alma Enamorado (“Petitioner”), has agreed to settle his claims against Defendants Abel Zapata, Elizabeth Rafel Sanchez, and Valentino Valentinez in exchange for $75,000.00. If approved, $12,183.96 will be used for medical expenses, $18,750.00 will be used for attorney’s fees, and $2,818.52 will be used for non-medical expenses, leaving a balance of $41,247.52 for Claimant to be invested into a single-premium deferred annuity with Metropolitan Tower Life Insurance Company.

Court approval is required for all settlements of a minor’s claim. (Probate Code §§ 3500, 3600, et seq.; Code Civ. Proc. § 372.) The Court has reviewed the proposed settlement and finds that it is fair and reasonable. Further, the requested attorney’s fees, which amounts to approximately 25% of the total settlement, is fair and reasonable.

The unopposed Petition to approve minor’s compromise is GRANTED.

Per California Rules of Court, Rule 7.952, Petitioner and Claimant must appear at the December 26, 2019 hearing, unless the Court finds good cause to excuse their appearance. The Court finds that Claimant’s appearance is not necessary, but will require Petitioner to appear.

Moving party to give notice.

Parties who intend to submit on this tentative must send an email to the Court at SSCDEPT4B@lacourt.org indicating intention to submit on the tentative.
