Case No. C15-1175RSL ORDER UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 11 Defendant. 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 This matter comes before the Court on “Plaintiffs’ Motion to Deny or Strike Defendant’s Request for a Medical Reversionary Trust.” Dkt. # 174. Defendant has not, however, requested that the Court impose a medical reversionary trust, making plaintiff’s motion premature. In addition, the Court is not inclined to resolve issues related to the appropriateness of various remedial options before hearing testimony and considering the evidence at trial. While the Court undoubtedly has the discretion to impose a medical reversionary trust, whether one would be appropriate in this case will depend on S.L.P.’s circumstances and an evaluation of what is in her best interests. Plaintiff’s motion is therefore DENIED. 22 DATED this 4th day of August, 2020. 23 24 A 25 Robert S. Lasnik United States District Judge 26 ORDER - 1
