Aksu v. County of Contra Costa et al
ORDER by Judge Charles R. Breyer denying 78 Motion for Partial Summary Judgment. (crblc1, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 4/2/2015)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
United States District Court
For the Northern District of California
No. C 12-04268 CRB
HASAN ARDA AKSU,
ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR
COUNTY OF CONTRA COSTA, et al.,
Plaintiff Hasan Arda Aksu moves for partial summary judgment against Defendant
Suzanne Porter, asserting that a Contra Costa Superior Court decision precludes Porter from
litigating her liability in the instant action. See generally Mot. (dkt. 78). The Court finds this
matter suitable for resolution without oral argument pursuant to Civil Local Rule 7-1(b),
VACATES the hearing currently set for April 3, 2015, and DENIES the Motion. The
elements of issue preclusion are not satisfied because the superior court did not decide the
identical issues present in the instant action, nor were those issues necessary to the superior
court’s decision. See Cooper v. Ramos, 704 F.3d 772, 784 (9th Cir. 2012).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: April 2, 2015
CHARLES R. BREYER
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
