Guardado v. Superior Court (Mariposa Gardens), B201147

In the context of parties' power to assert a peremptory challenge to a judge, a ruling under Civil Code section 3295(c) that a plaintiff has demonstrated a substantial probability that he or she will prevail on a claim for punitive damages is not a "determination of contested fact issues relating to the merits" under Code of Civil Procedure section 170.6(a)(2).
