Judge: Mark H. Epstein, Case: 20STCV17235, Date: 2023-02-28 Tentative Ruling

Case Number: 20STCV17235    Hearing Date: February 28, 2023    Dept: R

The motion to tax costs is DENIED.  Defendants prevailed in the action.  They are entitled to their statutory costs.  The court cannot deprive them of that relief based on plaintiffs’ articulation of MICRA’s inequities.  Of course, if plaintiffs’ appeal is successful, the cost award may well be vacated.
