Golub and Nguyen Succeed in Extricating Client via Motion for Summary Judgment

September 26, 2019
Beth Golub (Partner-San Diego) and Alex Nguyen (Associate-Los Angeles) succeeded in extricating a major technology company client via their Motion for Summary Judgment in an auto accident case. The plaintiff tried to belatedly add our client to the case after the statute of limitations ran by filing defective doe amendments and improperly relying on the relation back doctrine. Plaintiff's counsel attempted to argue that although plaintiff was not genuinely ignorant of our client's identities when she filed the complaint, the statute of limitations defense was barred by the doctrine of equitable estoppel. The Court granted Beth and Alex's motion, as the Court agreed plaintiff failed to raise a triable issue of material fact and it was unmoved by plaintiff's equitable estoppel argument.
