ALCAL SPECIALTY CONTRACTING, INC. V. ENERGY INSPECTORS CORPORATION

Superior Court (2011) 202 Cal.App.4th 24, 33 (Tiffin), states, “As we have explained ante, the clear language of the statute indicates that the Legislature has not extended the umbrella of section 877.6 to obligors on separate contracts or other contractual obligations despite the fact that all obligors are obliged to the plaintiffs. Nor is this in any way unreasonable, despite Cummins's claim that it will discourage the parties from settling in a case like this.

BEL-AIR ASSOCIATION VS HOLDING COMPANY OF BEVERLY HILLS, LLC

A party opposing a motion for determination of good faith settlement has the burden of proof to show a lack of good faith. Cal. Code of Civ. Proc. §877.6(d). The proposed settlement calls for J&F to pay $97,500. Since plaintiff’s damages are a brief service outage, this settlement appears to be within a reasonable range of defendant’s actual liability. This is especially true given that under Tech-Bilt a settlor should pay less in settlement than if found liable at trial.
