SAN DIEGO - A California federal judge on June 16 denied a claimant's request for an interlocutory appeal on the basis that the claimant did not prove that any controlling issues of law are at issue that would justify an appeal before a final judgment is issued (Mariana Nelson et al. v. Standard Insurance Co. et al., No. 13-188, S.D. Calif.; 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 81749).
