Tentative Rulings

Case Number: 18STLC12124    Hearing Date: March 02, 2020    Dept: 26

State Farm v. Ledezman, Jr., et al.

MOTION TO DEEM REQUESTS FOR ADMISSION ADMITTED

(CCP § 2033.280)

TENTATIVE RULING:

Plaintiff State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company’s Motion to Deem Requests for Admission Admitted Against Defendant Guillermo Ledezman, Jr. is GRANTED. DEFENDNT IS TO PAY SANCTIONS OF $260.00 TO PLAINTIFF’S COUNSEL WITHIN 30 DAYS’ NOTICE OF THIS ORDER.

ANALYSIS:

On October 19, 2019, Plaintiff State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company (“Plaintiff”) served Requests for Admissions on Defendant Guillermo Ledezman, Jr. (“Defendant”). (Motion, Reese Decl., Exh. A.) On December 17, 2019, Defendant served unverified responses to the Requests for Admission. (Id. at Exh. B.) Despite providing Defendant with an extension of the time to serve verified responses, to date, Plaintiff has not received verified responses to the discovery requests propounded on Defendant. (Id. at p. 2:1-3.) As a result, Plaintiff filed the instant Motion to Deem the Truth of Matters Specified in Requests for Admissions Admitted and Request for Monetary Sanctions (the “Motion”) on February 3 31, 2020. To date, no opposition has been filed.

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 Code of Civil Procedure sections 2023.010, 2023.030 and 2033.280, and have been properly noticed. Sanctions are granted against Defendant in the amount of $260.00, based on one hour of attorney time billed at $200.00 per hour, plus the $60.00 filing fee. (Id. at p. 2:4-7.)

Based on the foregoing, Plaintiff State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company’s Motion to Deem Requests for Admission Admitted Against Defendant Guillermo Ledezman, Jr. is GRANTED. DEFENDNT IS TO PAY SANCTIONS OF $260.00 TO PLAINTIFF’S COUNSEL WITHIN 30 DAYS’ NOTICE OF THIS ORDER.
