TENTATIVE RULING

I. Third Party JAMES DICKMAN’s Motion to Quash Judgment Creditor NOAH’s ARK PROCESSORS, LLC Application and Order for Appearance and Examination of Third Party JAMES DICKMAN and related Subpoena Duces Tecum is DENIED. The Alternative Motion for Protective Order is DENIED.

II. The Judgment Debtor Examination of Third Party JAMES DICKMAN is CONTINUED to Thursday, April 2, 2020 at 8:30 a.m. in Dept. SE-F.

Opposing Party to give Notice.

Third Party JAMES DICKMAN moves to quash a subpoena duces tecum ordering him to bring specified documents to a debtor’s examination under CCP §1987.1, or alternatively for a protective order. Dickman argues that Plaintiff is seeking a third judgment debtor examination (less than three months after the second examination) for no other purpose other than to harass, annoy, and oppress Mr. Dickman, and to cause Mr. Dickman unwarranted burden and expense.

CCP §1987.1(a) provides, as follows: “If a subpoena requires the attendance of a witness or the production of books, documents, electronically stored information, or other things before a court, or at the trial of an issue therein, or at the taking of a deposition, the court, upon motion reasonably made by any person described in subdivision (b), or upon the court’s own motion after giving counsel notice and an opportunity to be heard, may make an order quashing the subpoena entirely, modifying it, or directing compliance with it upon those terms or conditions as the court shall declare, including protective orders. In addition, the court may make any other order as may be appropriate to protect the person from unreasonable or oppressive demands, including unreasonable violations of the right of privacy of the person.”

The Motion to Quash and alternate Motion for Protective Order are denied. The Court does not find that the subpoena at issue is being used for no other purpose than to harass, annoy, or oppress Mr. Dickman. Rather, based on the evidence presented, the Court finds that Plaintiff has adequately attempted to meet and confer with Mr. Dickman with respect to the scope of the subpoena(s) at issue given Mr. Dickman’s previous objections to the scope of the subpoenas at the first and second debtor’s exams. The Court has reviewed the subpoena duces tecum attached as Exhibit 7 to the Declaration of John R. Bamford and finds that the third subpoenas are limited in scope to documents which may contain information pertaining to Mr. Dickman’s purported disregard of the corporate form.

Sanctions are denied.
