Case No.: BC566372    

#1 – Aboujaoude v. Adidas AG, et al. (BC 566 372)

On September 28, 2016 Plaintiff Salwa Aboujaoude filed a motion to transfer this case from the Central District to the West Judicial District (Santa Monica courthouse). The case was originally assigned to personal injury Department 93. On September 16, 2016, at a hearing on competing ex parte applications filed by the parties, Judge Randolph Hammock sua sponte determined the case was complicated and should be transferred to an Independent Calendar courtroom. At the direction of this court, the case was transferred to Judge Deirdre Hill in Department 49 of the Stanley Mosk courthouse. On September 28, 2016 (concurrent with filing this motion) Plaintiff filed a CCP § 170.6 challenge to Judge Hill and on September 29, 2016 Defendant Adidas America filed its own CCP § 170.6 challenge, both of which Judge Hill accepted as timely on October 4, 2016. The case was then reassigned to Judge Michael Johnson in Department 56.
