When a party to whom interrogatories are directed fails to respond, under CCP § 2030.290(b) a party propounding the interrogatories may move for an order compelling a response.

For a motion to compel initial responses, no meet and confer is required. All that needs to be shown is that a set of interrogatories was properly served on the opposing party, that the time to respond has expired, and that no response of any kind has been served. Leach v.
