Appellate court rules against Ontario in airport suit

A judge has been ordered to take another look at her decision to require Los Angeles to release nearly 400 documents to Ontario in connection with the lawsuit between the two cities regarding control of Ontario International Airport.

The Fourth State Court of Appeals in Riverside ruled this week that Riverside Superior Court Judge Gloria Connor Trask should reconsider her ruling, which she issued last December, according to a report in the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.

Attorneys for Los Angeles, owner of the airport, argued that the documents should remain sealed because to released them would violate attorney-client privilege.

Ontario’s attorneys called that claim bogus and said Los Angeles failed to show why releasing the documents would violate the confidentiality of either party, the report stated

Los Angeles has 30 days from March 10 to file a motion that would set up a hearing with Trask.
