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

Dept. 27

8:30 a.m.

July 23, 2020

Claimant Emerald Grismore (“Claimant”), a minor, by and through her Guardian Ad Litem, Tawanda Pitre (“Petitioner”), has agreed to settle her claims against Defendants “Los Angeles Unified School District, et al.” in exchange for $5,500.  Court approval is required for all settlements of a minor’s claim.  (Probate Code §§ 3500, 3600, et seq.; Code Civ. Proc. § 372.) However, the Petition is deficient in the following ways:

  • The settling defendants have not been completely named.  Only LAUSD is named and it is not clear who “et al.” refers to.  Each defendant must be listed in Item 11b.  

  • Item 13b(2)(c) is checked, indicating that a Non-ERISA insured plan paid medical expenses, but Item 13a(1) and 13b(2)(e) state that $0 were paid.  

  • Item 14a and b are both blank. But, both Items 15a, 15b(2), and 15b(3) are checked, indicating Petitioner has paid or become obligated to pay for “attorney’s fees included in the total fee amount shown in Item 14a” and “other expenses included in the total shown in item 14b” in the amount of $1,375.  Also, Items 17a and 17c are blank.  

  • Item 16 is blank. 

  • Item 19b(1) is checked but states that zero dollars will be paid to the guardian of the estate of the minor. There is no Attachment 19b(1). 

  • Item 21 then requests the proceeds be distributed to a blocked account for the minor’s benefit.

The unopposed Petition to approve minor’s compromise is DENIED without prejudice.

Per California Rules of Court, Rule 7.952, Petitioner and Claimant must appear at the July 23, 2020 hearing, unless the Court finds good cause to excuse their appearance.  The Court excuses Petitioner and Claimant from appearing.  

Moving party to give notice.

Parties who intend to submit on this tentative must send an email to the Court at SSCDEPT27@lacourt.org indicating intention to submit on the tentative as directed by the instructions provided on the court website at www.lacourt.org.  

Dated this 23rd day of July 2020

Hon. Edward B. Moreton, Jr. 

Judge of the Superior Court
