1. Background Facts

Plaintiff, Kate Sanchez, a minor by and through her GAL, Ebodio Sanchez, filed this action against Defendant, LAUSD for damages arising out of an incident that occurred during PE class. Plaintiff was found unconscious on the black top during class. As a result of the incident, she suffers from headaches, memory issues, forgetfulness, sleeping disturbance, emotional issues, and continuous headaches. She also suffers from parenchymal atrophy, which could continue to impair her cognitive functioning over time and/or lead to premature death.

2. 6/14/19 Motion to Compel IME

On 6/14/19, the Court heard and considered Defendant’s motion to compel Plaintiff to sit for an IME with a mental health examiner. The Court held that Plaintiff must do so, and found the examination must be limited to eight hours, Plaintiff’s mother could observe the examination through a window, and the raw date from the IME must be turned over to Plaintiff’s attorney at the conclusion of the examination.

3. Renewed Motion to Compel IME

At this time, Defendant renews its motion to compel IME, contending Counsel, after communicating with a number of providers, cannot find one who is willing to agree to the terms of the examination required by the Court in the 6/14/19 order.

The parties have resolved all issues relating to the raw data at this time. The sole issue remaining is whether Plaintiff’s mother can view the examination through a window. Defendant contends it cannot find an examiner who will agree to this condition. Plaintiff contends the Court specifically indicated, at the prior hearing on the motion, that it would not reconsider this issue.

The Court wishes to hear from Counsel for Defendant, at the hearing, concerning the nature of the examiners’ concerns about having Plaintiff’s mother view the examination through a window. Could a one-way window be used, so Plaintiff’s mother can see Plaintiff but Plaintiff cannot see her mother? Could Plaintiff face away from her mother during the examination? The Court does not wish to impede the examination, but also wishes to protect the minor child from a painful experience at examination. Counsel for both sides must be personally present at the hearing to discuss reasonable alternatives to ensure the examination can go forward.
