Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC650662    Hearing Date: July 30, 2020    Dept: A

# 16. The Estate of Patrisia Robles, et al. v. Fernando Quintero, et al.

Case No.: BC650662

Matter on calendar for: Motion for Order for Release of Autopsy Photographs

Tentative ruling:

  1. Background

This is a wrongful death action. Defendant Fernando Quintero was an off-duty Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy involved in an auto accident at 2 a.m. that lead to the death of decedent Patrisia Robles. Plaintiffs The Estate of Patrisia Robles, through its successor-in-interest Yolanda Robles, Erick and Andrew Lujan, minors, through their guardian ad litem Eddie Lujan, allege Quintero was acting within the course and scope of his employment at the time of the incident. The County of Los Angeles was dismissed from the action.

Defendant Quintero now moves for a Court order compelling the Los Angeles County Coroner to release photographs of decedent. The motion is unopposed.

For the reasons set forth below, the Court grants the motion.

  1. Standard

    Code of Civil Procedure § 129 prevents the dissemination of any post-mortem photographs taken by a coroner unless, in pertinent part, a party obtains a court order and the party notifies the county’s district attorney of the request for court order at least five days before the order is signed. (C.C.P., § 129(a)(2).) The party must show good cause for the release of the images. (Ibid.) The decedent’s legal heirs or representative may also authorize the photographs’ release.

  2. Analysis

    The deposition of the coroner revealed the existence of photographs taken at the scene of the incident and at the coroner’s office. (Decl. Zurek, ¶ 3.)

    Defendant argues there is good cause for the release of photographs because the injuries sustained may show whether decedent was driving the vehicle at the time of the incident and whether she survived the collision. The defense’s forensic pathologist believes the photographs are essential to their evaluation. (Decl. Zurek, ¶ 4.)

    The Court finds that defendant has shown good cause for the release of the photographs. The Court notes that defendant timely served this motion on the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. Defendant is to submit a proposed protective order to the Court that adequately prevents the disclosure of the photographs to anyone other than defense counsel and the defense’s medical expert witnesses.

  3. Ruling

    The motion is granted. Defendant Quintero to provide the Court with a proposed protective order that adequately protects decedent’s privacy by limiting disclosure to defense counsel and defense counsel’s medical expert witnesses.
