[TENTATIVE] ORDER RE: DEFENDANT’S MOTION TO COMPEL PLAINTIFF’S RESPONSES TO WRITTEN DISCOVERY; REQUEST FOR MONETARY SANCTIONS

Dept. 27

8:30 a.m.

April 13, 2021

On March 17, 2017, Plaintiff Arthur Y. Wada (“Plaintiff”) filed this action against Defendants Tri-Pacific Termite Company, John McCauley, and Carlo Covino (collectively, “Defendants”) arising from a March 17, 2015 motor vehicle v. bicycle collision.

On August 4, 2020, Defendants served Requests for Admissions, Set Two; Form Interrogatories, Set Two; Special Interrogatories, Set Two; and Requests for Production of Documents, Set Two.  On August 17, 2020, Plaintiff served objections.  On October 1, 2020, Defendants filed these Motions to compel and deem admitted. 

Defendants moves to compel Plaintiff’s responses and deem admitted on the grounds that no verified responses have been received.  However, objections do not need to be verified as they are distinct from discovery responses.  (See, e.g., Code Civ. Proc., § 2030.250.)  A response composed solely of objections, as in this case, need not be verified by the party. (Blue Ride Ins. Co. v. Superior Court (19988) 202 Cal.App.3d 339, 344-345.)  Accordingly, Defendants’ Motions are DENIED.  To the extent Defendants challenge the validity of Plaintiff’s objections, these motions are to be construed as motions to compel a further response, which are premature as the parties have not participated in an Informal Discovery Conference as required by the Court’s First Amended Standing Order Re: PI Court Procedures (2/24/2020). 

Accordingly, the hearings are taken off-calendar until Defendants schedule and attend an IDC.  If the issues are not resolved at the IDC, Defendants may re-file the Motions and indicate that they were previously filed within the time to bring a motion to compel a further response.   

Moving party to give notice.

Parties who intend to submit on this tentative must send an email to the Court at SSCDEPT27@lacourt.org indicating intention to submit on the tentative as directed by the instructions provided on the court website at www.lacourt.org.  

Dated this 13th day of April 2021

Hon. Edward B. Moreton, Jr.

Judge of the Superior Court
