(2) Motions to Compel Responses to Discovery

\r\n\r\n

Moving Party: Defendant Jacob Is A Dog, LLC dba\r\nSmartbox of Los Angeles

\r\n\r\n

Responding Party: None

\r\n\r\n

T/R: DEFENDANT’S\r\nMOTIONS TO COMPEL DISCOVERY ARE GRANTED.

\r\n\r\n

PLAINTIFF TO SERVE VERIFIED RESPONSES, WITHOUT OBJECTION, TO\r\nTHE SUBJECT DISCOVERY WITHIN 15 DAYS OF NOTICE OF RULING.

\r\n\r\n

DEFENDANT’S\r\nREQUEST FOR SANCTIONS IS GRANTED IN THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF $1,077.50.

\r\n\r\n

DEFENDANT TO NOTICE.

\r\n\r\n

If the\r\nparties wish to submit on the tentative, please email the courtroom at¿SMCdept54@lacourt.org¿with notice to opposing counsel (or self-represented party)\r\nbefore 8:30 am on the day of the hearing.

\r\n\r\n

The Court considers the moving papers. No opposition has been\r\nreceived.

\r\n\r\n

When timely\r\nresponses to interrogatories are not received, “[t]he party propounding the\r\ninterrogatories may move for an order compelling response to the interrogatories.” \r\n(CCP § 2030.290(b).) “If a party to whom a demand for inspection, copying,\r\ntesting, or sampling is directed fails to serve a timely response to it. .\r\n. [t]he party to whom the demand for inspection, copying, testing, or\r\nsampling is directed waives any objection to the demand, including one based on\r\nprivilege or on the protection for work product. . . . The party making\r\nthe demand may move for an order compelling response to the demand.” (CCP\r\n§ 2031.300(a)–(b).)

\r\n\r\n

Defendant\r\nmoves to compel responses to form interrogatories, set one, and requests for\r\nproduction of documents, set one, from Plaintiff. Defendant served discovery on\r\nPlaintiff on April 1, 2020. On June 4, 2020, Plaintiff served responses to\r\nrequests for admissions, but did not provide responses to the remaining\r\ndiscovery. Defendant, via email, requested responses to discovery several times\r\nover the last year, but to no avail. As of the filing of this motion, responses\r\nhave not been received. Plaintiff has not opposed this motion to show responses\r\nhave been served. The motions are GRANTED.

\r\n\r\n

Defendant\r\nseeks $1,077.50 in sanctions for each motion. As the motions are largely\r\nduplicative, the Court will allow a total award of $1,077.50 in sanctions.
