ANALYSIS:

  1. Background

On October 5, 2018, Plaintiff Leilani Tuano (“Plaintiff”) filed an action for motor vehicle negligence against Defendant Sota Nam (“Defendant”). Defendant filed an Answer on December 14, 2018.

On August 24, 2020, Defendant filed the instant Motion to Compel Plaintiff’s Deposition and Request for Sanctions (the “Motion”). Plaintiff filed an Opposition on October 10, 2020 and a second Opposition on January 20, 2021. Defendant filed a Reply on January 21, 2021.

Before considering the merits of the instant Motion, the Court notes that Code of Civil Procedure section 2024.020 provides that parties must complete discovery on or before the 30th day before trial and must have any discovery motions heard on or before the 15th day before trial. (Code Civ. Proc., § 2024.202, subd. (a).)

As trial is scheduled for February 10, 2021, both the discovery cut-off and the discovery motion cut-off deadlines have passed. However, the Court notes that a motion to continue trial is scheduled for February 16, 2021. Thus, the Court CONTINUES this motion pending the outcome of Defendant’s request to continue the trial.

II. Conclusion and Order

To allow for the resolution of Defendant Sota Nam’s motion to continue trial, Defendant’s Motion to Compel Plaintiff’s Deposition is CONTINUED TO APRIL 7, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. in Department 25 at the SPRING STREET COURTHOUSE.

Moving party is ordered to give notice.
