UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
SAN JOSE DIVISION
Case No. 16-cv-03226-BLF
ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO
APPOINT GUARDIAN AD LITEM
COUNTY OF SANTA CRUZ, et al.,
[Re: ECF 4]
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Before the Court is Plaintiff’s motion to appoint Mr. James De La Peña as guardian ad
litem for Plaintiff K.D., a minor. Mr. De La Peña is K.D.’s paternal grandfather and foster parent,
and declares that he has no interests adverse to K.D., and that the appointment is intended for this
litigation only. See ECF 4-1. Having considered Plaintiff’s submissions, the Court finds the
matter appropriate for submission without a hearing and Mr. De La Peña a suitable representative
for K.D.’s interests in this action. Accordingly, the Court GRANTS the motion to appoint
guardian ad litem for purposes of this action, and VACATES the hearing scheduled for September
29, 2016. Civ. L.R. 7-11(b).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: September 16, 2016
