District Court of Appeal, First District, Division 2, California.

STANDARD RADIO AND TELEVISION COMPANY, a corporation, Plaintiff and Respondent, v. CHRONICLE PUBLISHING COMPANY, a corporation, Et al., Defendants and Appellants.

Civ. 18221.

Decided: June 29, 1960

Rea, Frasse, Anastasi, Clark & Chapman, Burnett, Burnett & Somers, San Jose, for appellant. Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp, Macklin Fleming, Los Angeles, for respondents, Screen Gems, Inc., Associated Artists Productions, Inc., Lester S. Tobias, Official Films, Inc., Barney Mackall, National Telefilm Associates, Edward M. Gray, Hygo Television Films, Inc., Louis H. Goldstein. Moses Lasky, Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison, San Francisco, Westinghouse Broadcasting Co., Inc. (Cal.) and Philip G. Lasky. Cooper, White & Cooper, San Francisco, for Chronicle Publishing Co., Joseph O. Tobin, Charles Thieriot, E. L. Labadie, Phyllis M. Tucker, Helen M Cameron, Harold See and Ortega Investment Co. Loeb & Loeb, Los Angeles, and Ruffo & Chadwick, San Jose, for Loew's, Inc., and Maurie Gresham. Rankin, Oneal, Luckhardt, Center & Hall, San Jose, Beilenson, Meyer, Rosenfeld & Susman, Beverly Hills, for MCA TV, LTD. and H. P. Long.

This is a companion case to Standard Radio and Television Company v. Chronicle Publishing Company, et al., 1 Civ. 18222, Cal.App., 6 Cal.Rptr. 246. Defendants moved the court for a change of venue from Santa Clara County to the City and County of San Francisco. The motion was denied and defendants filed this appeal.

Since we have concluded in 1 Civ. 18222 that the state court does not have jurisdiction over the subject matter of the litigation, this appeal is now moot. It is therefore dismissed.

STONE, Justice pro tem.

KAUFMAN, P. J., and DRAPER, J., concur.
