ERICKA HERNANDEZ, ET AL. VS CRYSTAL HUDSON

Case No.: 20STCV01435    

The Court finds good cause to excuse the appearances of counsel, the guardian ad litem and the minor. No appearances are necessary.

The Court has reviewed the Amended Petition to Approve Compromise of Pending Action of a Minor (Tyrin Harris, Age 13), filed on 12/31/2020 as well as the Supplemental Declaration of Jeffrey L. Molchan, filed on 01/06/2021. The Court finds that the settlement is reasonable, and based thereon, approves and GRANTS the petition.

The Court has considered the Declaration of Jeffrey L. Molchan in support of the fee request. The Court finds that on the current record, and in consideration of the factors set forth in Cal Rules of Court, Rule 7.955(b), a fee of 25% of the gross settlement is reasonable.

The Court approves the following distribution of the settlement proceeds:
