Case Number: 18STLC08242    Hearing Date: November 20, 2019    Dept: 94

Cornelia v. Harris et al.

MOTION TO COMPEL RESPONSES TO INTERROGATORIES AND REQUEST FOR PRODUCTION OF DOCUMENTS; DEEM REQUESTS FOR ADMISSION ADMITTED

(CCP §§ 2030.290; 2031.300; 2033.280)

TENTATIVE RULING:

Plaintiff Hanh Cornelia’s (1) Motion to Compel Responses to Form Interrogatories, Set One; Request for Monetary Sanctions; (2) Motion to Compel Responses to Special Interrogatories, Set One; Request for Monetary Sanctions; (3) Motion to Compel Responses to Requests for Production of Documents, Set One; Request for Monetary Sanctions; and (4) Motion to Deem Requests for Admission, Set One, Admitted; Request for Monetary Sanctions, are GRANTED. Verified responses without objections to the interrogatories and requests for production are to be served within 20 days. Sanctions are awarded against Defendant Delaney Marie Harris in the amount of $1,215.00, to be paid to Plaintiff, by and through her counsel, within 30 days.

ANALYSIS:

Plaintiff Hanh Cornelia (“Plaintiff”) filed the instant action for motor vehicle negligence against Defendant Delaney Marie Harris on June 12, 2018. On April 15, 2019, Plaintiff filed a motion to compel discovery motions set for hearing on May 8, 2019. Plaintiff filed the instant discovery motions (“Motions”) on July 2, 2019. To date, no oppositions have been filed.

It is undisputed that Defendant has not provided any verified responses to the discovery at issue propounded by Plaintiff. (Motions, Barrientos Decl., ¶¶ 2-8, Exh. A.) There is no requirement for a prior meet and confer effort before a motion to compel initial responses can be filed. Further, the motion can be brought any time after the responding party fails to provide the responses. Based on the foregoing, Plaintiff is entitled to an order that Defendant serve verified responses to the interrogatories and document demands, without objections. (Code Civ. Proc., §§ 2030.290, 2031.300.) The responses are due within 20 days. Plaintiff is also entitled to an order deeming the requests for admission admitted against Defendant. (Code Civ. Proc., § 2033.280.)

The Court finds Defendant’s failure to respond a misuse of the discovery process. (Code Civ. Proc., § 2023.010, subd. (d).) Sanctions have been sufficiently noticed; however, the amount requested is excessive given the simplicity of these nearly identical motions. Defendant Delaney Marie Harris is ordered to pay sanctions in the amount of $1,215.00, based on three (3) hours of attorney time billed at $325.00 an hour, plus four filing fees of $60.00 each, within 30 days. (Motions, Barrientos Decl., ¶ 9.)

Moving party to give notice.
