Noting the split of authorities on this issue, this decision follows Cooksey v. Alexakis (2004) 123 Cal.App.4th 246 in holding that a party who seeks a continuance under section 437c(h), must show why the discovery necessary to oppose the motion for summary judgment or summary adjudication could not have been completed sooner, and accordingly requires the court to grant the continuance. Absent such a showing, it is not an abuse of discretion to deny the continuance even if there is no showing of prejudice to the defendant from the requested continuance.summary
