Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC684515    Hearing Date: January 31, 2020    Dept: E

MOTION FOR: (1) DETERMINATION OF GOOD FAITH SETTLEMENT; AND (2) SEALING REFERENCES TO SETTLEMENT AMOUNT

Date: 1/31/20

Case: Boyadzhyan, et al. v. Polaris Industries, Inc., et al. (BC 684515)

TENTATIVE RULING:

I. GOOD FAITH SETTLEMENT DETERMINATION

 

Defendant Polaris Inc.’s UNOPPOSED Motion for Determination of Good Faith Settlement is GRANTED. (See City of Grand Terrace v. Superior Court (1987) 192 Cal.App.3d 1251, 1261 [upon presentation of evidence of good faith of the settlement, the burden is on any challenging party to establish lack of good faith].) The Court determines that the settlement entered by plaintiffs Oganes Boyadzhyan and Karine Boyadzhyan and moving defendant was entered into in good faith.

Defendant Polaris Inc.is discharged from all liability on claims for equitable contribution and/or full or partial indemnity by other parties, joint tortfeasors, or co-obligors, in this or any other action arising from the same general set of facts.

II. MOTION TO SEAL

Defendant Polaris Inc.’s Motion for an Order to Seal References to Settlement Amount is GRANTED, subject to Polaris Inc. re-lodging with the Court of an unredacted copy as set forth below by 2/7/20.

The Court finds that: (1) There exists an overriding interest that overcome the right of public access to the records, namely, the interest of the parties in plaintiffs in complying with their agreement not to disclose the settlement terms or amount; (2) The overriding interest supports sealing the records; (3) A substantial probability exists that the overriding interest will be prejudiced if the records are not sealed; (4) The proposed sealing is narrowly tailored under the circumstances; and (5) No less restrictive means exist to achieve the overriding interests.

The Court makes such findings based on the fact that defendant has established the settlement agreement contains a provision not to disclose the terms of the agreement. However, the unredacted copy lodged with the Court did not comply with Cal. Rule of Court 2.251(b)(5), because the cover of the unredacted version did not identify it as “May Not Be Examined Without Court Order-Contains material from conditionally sealed record.” The unredacted Confidential Statement of Terms of Settlement between Defendant/Cross-Defendant Polaris Inc. and Plaintiffs Oganes and Karine Boyadzhyan lodged with the Court shall be returned to Polaris Inc. upon its re-lodging with the Court an unredacted copy in accordance herewith.
