Sanchez v. Kern Emergency Medical Transportation Corp.Annotate this Case
Plaintiff was injured during a high school football game and was provided ambulance services by defendant. Plaintiff filed suit alleging that the standby ambulance crew was grossly negligent in not properly assessing his condition and immediately transporting him to the hospital in the standby ambulance. The trial court granted defendant's motion for summary judgment. The court denied judicial notice of a court record by defendant because it was not relevant or necessary to the resolution of the appeal; the trial court did not abuse its discretion in sustaining defendant's objections to the challenged portions of an expert's declaration; plaintiff failed to demonstrate that he raised a triable issue of material fact on the issue of causation and the court found no reversible error; and the court denied defendant's motion for sanctions, finding that the appeal was not so obviously lacking in merit that any reasonable attorney would agree it was totally and completely without merit. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment.
