Government Claims Act opinion filing Monday

As expected, the Supreme Court will file on Monday morning its opinion in J.M. v. Huntington Beach Union High School District, which was argued on the December calendar.

The case raises the issue whether a claimant under the Government Claims Act must file a petition for relief from Government Code section 945.4’s claim requirement, as set forth in Government Code section 946.6, if he has submitted a timely application for leave to present a late claim under Government Code section 911.6, subdivision (b)(2), and was a minor at all relevant times.

The opinion can be viewed Monday starting at 10:00 a.m.
