The trial court did not abuse its discretion in granting defendant summary judgment due to plaintiff’s failure to file an adequate statement of disputed facts, even after the trial court had noted the defects in plaintiff’s first-filed statement and given plaintiff another chance. By giving plaintiff a second chance, the trial court did exactly as Parkview Villas Assn., Inc. v. State Farm Fire & Casualty Co. (2005) 133 Cal.App.4th 1197 instructs. Having done so, the trial court did not abuse its discretion in granting summary judgment when plaintiff failed to correct its statement’s defects.
