Tentative Rulings

Case Number: 18STLC12003    Hearing Date: November 21, 2019    Dept: 94

MOTION TO DEEM THE TRUTH OF MATTERS IN REQUESTS FOR ADMISSIONS TO DEFENDANT AS ADMITTED AND FOR MONETARY SANCTIONS

(CCP § 2033.280)

TENTATIVE RULING:

Plaintiff Interinsurance Exchange of the Automobile Club’s Motion to Deem the Truth of Matters Specified in Requests for Admissions to Defendant as Admitted and for Monetary Sanctions is GRANTED.

ANALYSIS:

I. Background

On February 8, 2019, Plaintiff Interinsurance Exchange of the Automobile Club (“Plaintiff”) served Requests for Admissions on Defendant Eric Thomas Florence (“Defendant”). (Aguirre Decl. ¶ 4, citing to Exh. A.) To date, Plaintiff has not received any discovery responses to the propounded discovery requests from Defendant. (Id. ¶ 9.) 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 July 30, 2019.

II. Discussion & Order

 

Because Defendant has failed to serve any responses to Plaintiff’s Requests for Admissions, the unopposed Motion is GRANTED. Pursuant to CCP § 2033.280, the truth of the matters specified in Plaintiff’s Requests for Admissions to Defendant is hereby deemed admitted.

Because the Motion has been granted, monetary sanctions are mandatory under CCP § 2033.280(c). Given the simplicity of the Motion and the lack of opposition and reply, the Court awards Plaintiff $430 in reasonable attorney’s fees and costs as monetary sanctions against Defendant. Sanctions are to be paid within thirty (30) days from the date of Plaintiff serving a notice of this Order on Defendant.

Prevailing party is ordered to give notice.

Parties who intend to submit on this tentative must send an email to the Court at SMCdept94@lacourt.org as directed by the instructions provided on the court website at www.lacourt.org. If the department does not receive an email and there are no appearances at the hearing, the motion will be placed off calendar.
