IN THE COURT OF APPEAL OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA



SECOND APPELLATE DISTRICT



DIVISION FIVE



BRIAN J. KRAMER,



Plaintiff and Respondent,



v.



DANIEL ROBERT HANSEN,



Defendant and Appellant.



B198462



(Los Angeles County



Super. Ct. No. BC360526)



APPEAL from an order of the Superior Court of Los Angeles County, Gregory W. Alarcon, Judge. Affirmed.



Solomon Ward Seidenwurm & Smith, LLP and Edward J. McIntyre for Defendant and Appellant.



Law Offices of Thomas J. Weiss and Thomas J. Weiss for Plaintiff and Respondent.



Defendant, Daniel Robert Hansen, a contractor, appeals from a reconsideration order which ordered arbitration of six causes of action but denied the request to arbitrate all five remaining causes of action brought by plaintiff, Brian Kramer. Plaintiff filed suit when he was dissatisfied with the renovation of his home. Defendant has failed to provide a reporters transcript of the relevant proceedings or provide a suitable substitute.



Defendants failure to designate a reporters transcript or provide a suitable substitute warrants affirmance based on the inadequacy of the record. (Maria P. v. Riles (1987) 43 Cal.3d 1281, 1295; In re Kathy P. (1979) 25 Cal.3d 91, 102.) In numerous situations, appellate courts have refused to reach the merits of an appellants claims because no reporters transcript of a pertinent proceeding or a suitable substitute was provided. (Walker v. Superior Court (1991) 53 Cal.3d 257, 273-274 [transfer order]; Maria P. v. Riles, supra, 43 Cal.3d at pp. 1295-1296 [attorney fee motion hearing]; Ballard v. Uribe (1986) 41 Cal.3d 564, 574-575 (lead opn. of Grodin, J.) [new trial motion hearing]; In re Kathy P., supra, 25 Cal.3d at p. 102 [hearing to determine whether counsel was waived and the minor consented to informal adjudication]; Boeken v. Philip Morris Inc. (2005) 127 Cal.App.4th 1640, 1672 [transcript of judges ruling on an instruction request]; Vo v. Las Virgenes Municipal Water Dist. (2000) 79 Cal.App.4th 440, 447 [trial transcript when attorney fees sought]; Estate of Fain (1999) 75 Cal.App.4th 973, 992 [surcharge hearing]; Hodges v. Mark (1996) 49 Cal.App.4th 651, 657 [nonsuit motion where trial transcript not provided]; Interinsurance Exchange v. Collins (1994)30 Cal.App.4th 1445, 1448 [monetary sanctions hearing]; Null v. City of Los Angeles (1988) 206 Cal.App.3d 1528, 1532 [reporters transcript fails to reflect content of special instructions]; Buckhart v. San Francisco Residential Rent etc. Bd. (1988) 197 Cal.App.3d 1032, 1036 [hearing on Code Civ. Proc., 1094.5 petition]; Sui v. Landin (1985) 163 Cal.App.3d 383, 385-386 [motion to dissolve preliminary injunction hearing]; Rossiter v. Benoit (1979) 88 Cal.App.3d 706, 713-714 [demurrer hearing]; Calhoun v. Hildebrandt (1964) 230 Cal.App.2d 70, 71-73 [transcript of argument to the jury]; Ehman v. Moore (1963) 221 Cal.App.2d 460, 462 [failure to secure reporters transcript or settled statement as to offers of proof]; Wetsel v. Garibaldi (1958) 159 Cal.App.2d 4, 10 [order confirming arbitration award].)



The order denying the petition to compel arbitration is affirmed. Plaintiff, Brian Kramer, is awarded his costs on appeal from, defendant, Daniel Robert Hansen.
