Judge: Mark C. Kim, Case: 22LBCV00319, Date: 2023-03-09 Tentative Ruling
Case Number: 22LBCV00319 Hearing Date: March 9, 2023 Dept: S27
Plaintiff seeks an order
consolidating 22LBCV00319 with 22LBCV0019.
Plaintiff filed its motion on 12/07/22 and set it for hearing on 1/26/23
in Department S26. On 1/26/23, S26
denied the motion, finding it should have been filed in Department S27, which
has the lower-numbered case. The Court
continued the hearing to 3/09/23 in Department S27.
The motion is denied. Local Rule 3.3(g)(1) requires cases to be pending
in the same department before being consolidated. 22LBCV00319 is pending in Department S26 and
22LBCV00190 (mis-cited as 22LBCV0019 throughout the moving papers) is pending
in Department S27. Notably, on 10/17/22,
this Court entered an order finding the cases NOT related. Absent an order relating the cases, the cases
cannot be consolidated.
Plaintiff is ordered to give notice.
