HERMAN YEE VS ANN HON

Yee’s Motion in Limine #1, the October 21, 2019 minute order and the October 21, 2019 Notice of Ruling are devoid of any reference to Code of Civil Procedure section 1024. Yee’s counsel, moreover, attests only that “[o]n the morning of trial call plaintiff requested, in the alternative [i.e., to Plaintiff’s Motion in Limine #1], that the Court reopen discovery for the limited purpose of allowing defendants to be re-deposed about the new documents. That request was granted.

CROP PRODUCTION VS. CAPTIVA VERDE

The appeal followed a two-day bench trial with no motions in limine. The Court believes 50 hours is a reasonable amount of time to devote to the respondent’s brief in the context of this matter. The Court therefore deducts 27.75 hours of Alcazar’s time, or $5,134. Second, as regards oral argument, it is undisputed that Plaintiff’s counsel collectively spent a total of 156 hours in preparation time. This was excessive. In the Court’s view, no more than 80 hours of preparation time was reasonable.

While potential prejudice may support a motion in limine, it is not a reason to strike part of a pleading. As a result, the motion is denied as to this phrase. Paragraph 174 This is a statement requesting punitive damages in connection with the 4AC’s breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing claim. Because the demurrer as to this cause of action was sustained without leave to amend, the motion to strike paragraph 174 is denied as moot.
