Tomorrow morning, the Supreme Court will file opinions in two cases argued on the February calendar.

Flores v. Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital raises these questions:  (1) Does the one-year statute of limitations for claims under the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (Code Civ. Proc., § 340.5) or the two-year statute of limitations for ordinary negligence (Code Civ. Proc., § 335.1) govern an action for premises liability against a hospital based on negligent maintenance of hospital equipment?  (2) Did the injury in this case arise out of “professional negligence,” as that term is used in section 340.5, or ordinary negligence?

In John v. Superior Court, the court will address whether a defendant who has been declared a vexatious litigant and is subject to a prefiling order (Code Civ. Proc., § 391.7, subd. (a)) must obtain leave of the presiding judge or justice before filing an appeal from an adverse judgment.

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