Case Number: 19STLC03674    Hearing Date: February 05, 2020    Dept: 26

Hirschbach Motor Lines, Inc. v. Andalon, et al

MOTION TO DEEM REQUESTS FOR ADMISSION ADMITTED; SANCTIONS

(CCP § 2033.280)

TENTATIVE RULING:

Plaintiff Hirschbach Motor Lines, Inc.’s Motion to Deem Admitted Matters served on Defendant Jose J. Andalon, is GRANTED. DEFENDANT IS TO PAY SANCTIONS OF $510.00 WITHIN 30 DAYS’ NOTICE OF THIS ORDER.

ANALYSIS:

On September 9, 2019, Plaintiff Hirschbach Motor Lines, Inc. (“Plaintiff”) served Requests for Admissions on Defendant Jose J. Andalon (“Defendant”). (Motion, Tapper Decl., Exh. A.) To date, Plaintiff has not received verified responses to the discovery requests from Defendant. (Id. at ¶5.) As a result, Plaintiff filed the instant Motion to Deem the Truth of Matters Specified in Requests for Admissions to Defendant as Admitted and for Monetary Sanctions (the “Motion”) on December 18, 2019.

Defendant has not provided verified responses to the discovery propounded by Plaintiff nor filed an opposition to the motion. There is no requirement for a prior meet and confer effort before a motion to deem requests for admission can be filed. Further, the motion can be brought any time after the responding party fails to provide the responses.

The Court finds the failure to respond a misuse of the discovery process. Sanctions are appropriate under CCP §§ 2023.010, 2023.030 and 2033.280, and have been properly noticed. Sanctions are granted against Defendant in the amount of $510.00, based on two hours of attorney time billed at $225.00 per hour, plus the $60.00 filing fee. (Motion, Tapper Decl., ¶6.)

Based on the foregoing, Plaintiff’s Motion to Deem Requests for Admission Admitted is GRANTED.

DEFENDANT IS TO PAY SANCTIONS OF $510.00 WITHIN 30 DAYS’ NOTICE OF THIS ORDER.

Moving party to give notice.
