Sutter Health v. Eden Township Healthcare Dist., 146002

In a motion under Government Code section 970.6, which permits a local public entity to pay a judgment in up to 10 annual installments upon a showing that prompt payment would impose an 'unreasonable hardship,' the trial court's grant of the motion is: 1) affirmed as to the trial court's grant of installment payment relief under section 970.6 where the District's financial straits readily support a finding of 'unreasonable hardship'; but 2) reversed as to the retroactive portion of the trial court's order where, although the postjudgment interest rate established by section 984 is appropriate prospectively, there is no statutory basis for reducing the interest accrued prior to the trial court's grant of relief under section 970.6.
