#19-104 Shalabi v. City of Fontana, S256665. (E069671; 35 Cal.App.5th 639; San Bernardino County Superior Court; CIVDS1314694.)

#19-104 Shalabi v. City of Fontana, S256665. (E069671; 35 Cal.App.5th 639; San Bernardino County Superior Court; CIVDS1314694.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal reversed the judgment in a civil action. The court limited review to the following issue: Code of Civil Procedure section 12 provides: “The time in which any act provided by law is to be done is computed by excluding the first day, and including the last, unless the last day is a holiday, and then it is also excluded.” In cases where the statute of limitations is tolled, is the first day after tolling ends included or excluded in calculating whether an action is timely filed? (See Ganahl v. Soher (1884) 2 Cal.Unrep. 415.)
