In the lawsuit styled Phyllis Grodzitsky, et al. v. American Honda Motor Co. Inc., Case No. 2:12-cv-01142-SVW-PLA (C.D. Cal.), the Hon. Stephen V. Wilson entered an order:
1. denying Defendant’s motion for summary judgment;
2. granting Plaintiff’s motion for leave to amend; and
3. denying as moot ex parte application to shorten time for hearing and the motion to strike Plaintiff’s renewed motion for class certification.
The Court said, “To sum up, the Court will deny the Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment without prejudice on the grounds that it is premature. The Court may consider such a motion after the class certification issue is resolved and proper discovery has taken place. The Court will grant the Plaintiff’s Motion to Amend, as it is no longer futile and the Court denied the previous motion for class certification without prejudice. The Court will consider the Plaintiff’s most recent renewed motion for class certification once it is fully briefed and will evaluate whether the Plaintiffs have sufficiently met the requirements to certify their new proposed class. Finally, the case is restored to the active calendar.”
