Date Description Notes

04/29/2016 Exhibits filed in support of: Four volumes of exhibits in support of Petition for writ of mandate/prohibition
05/02/2016 Order filed. The court has completed its initial review of the petition for writ of mandate filed April 29, 2016. The petition indicates the action involves a claim for relief under Business and Professions Code section 17200. [...] Further, the petition does not comply with the format provisions of rule 8.29(a) and (b) of the California Rules of Court[...] The petition is stricken pursuant to California Rules of Court, rule 8.204(e)(2)(B). Within 10 days of the filing date of this order, petitioner is ordered to file an amended petition that complies with Business and Professions Code section 17209 and rule 8.29(a) and (b) of the California Rules of Court. The amended petition must include a corrected proof of service which reflects full compliance with rule 8.29(a) and (b) of the California Rules of Court. No other changes are to be made to the petition. Petitioner need not file a new set of exhibits.
05/03/2016 Filed petition for writ of: Amended petition in compliance with order filed May 2, 2016 regarding Business and Professions code section 17209. Amended exhibits not required.
05/04/2016 Order filed. Plaintiffs filed two exhibits (exhibit Nos. 7 and 8) under seal in the respondent court. As the two exhibits were filed under seal in the trial court, they must be filed under seal, at least initially, here. (Cal. Rules of Court, rule 8.46(b)(1).) Defendants are ordered to file exhibit Nos. 7 and 8 under seal by Friday, May 6, 2016. The court reserves the right to order those exhibits unsealed. (Cal. Rules of Court, rule 8.46(e)(3).)
05/05/2016 Exhibits filed in support of: Exhibits 7 and 8, filed under seal, per this court's May 4, 2016 order Initially filed under seal May 5, 2016 UNSEALED Per May 19, 2016 order.
05/06/2016 Order filed. Defendants, Local TV, LLC and Local TV Finance, LLC, have lodged exhibit Nos. 7 and 8 which were filed under seal in the respondent court. As these over one-half decade old documents were filed under seal in the respondent court, they must be filed under seal, at least initially, here. (Cal. Rules of Court, rule 8.46(b)(1)1.) The court has reviewed the two exhibits which were filed under seal in the respondent court. A present, there appears to be an insufficient justification for sealing any of the two exhibits. [...] Also, no sealing order has been filed which complies with rule 2.550(d) 2. As permitted by rule 8.46(e)(3)3, the court may order the documents unsealed. The court will permit any party to file papers on the question of whether to unseal the documents or, in the alternative, return any of them to defense counsel. [...] Any justification to maintain any document in a sealed fashion must be presented under oath. The matters to be sealed must be specifically identified and placed in quotation marks. The declarations may be filed under seal but the court reserves the right to order them unsealed in whole or in part. The responses to this order are ordered filed by May 23, 2016, and may be via e-mail at 2d1.clerk5@jud.ca.gov. Any party shall have May 31, 2016, to likewise respond to any other party's arguments. In compliance with NBC Subsidiary (KNBC-TV), Inc. v. Superior Court, supra, 20 Cal.4th at page 1217, copies of this order are to be provided to the Los Angeles Metropolitan News Enterprise, the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Los Angeles Daily Journal, and the Los Angeles Times.

05/26/2016 Alternative writ or OSC issued. The court has read and considered the petition for writ of mandate filed on April 29, 2016, and amended petition filed May 3, 2016.
