[TENTATIVE] order RE:
motion to compel deposition
Plaintiff Behrouz Alipanahi (“Plaintiff”) filed this action against Defendant Gina Harris-Rey (“Defendant”) following a motor vehicle collision. Defendant moves to compel Plaintiff to appear for deposition. The unopposed motion is granted.
Defendant has the right to take Plaintiff’s deposition and is entitled to take Plaintiff’s depositions without leave of court. (See Code Civ. Proc., § 2025.210, subd. (a).) Per Code of Civil Procedure section 2025.450, if a party to the action fails to appear for deposition after service of a deposition notice and the party has not served a valid objection to that deposition notice, the party that noticed the deposition may move for an order to compel the deponent to attend and testify at deposition. (Code Civ. Proc., §2025.450, subd. (a).)
On May 15, 2018, Defendant noticed Plaintiff’s deposition for September 21, 2018. Defendant then re-noticed Plaintiff’s deposition for November 6, 2018, December 12, 2018, May 13, 2019, June 21, 2019, September 3, 2019, and February 26, 2020. (Declaration of Michael V. Madigan, ¶¶ 3-16.) To date, Plaintiff has not yet appeared for deposition. Accordingly, the motion to compel deposition is granted.
Defendant requests sanctions against Plaintiff and counsel-of-record. The Court concludes that sanctions are warranted per Code of Civil Procedure, section 2025.450, subdivision (g)(1). The Court imposes sanctions against Plaintiff and his attorney of record, Michael J. Libman, in the amount of $443.15, which Defendant requests as her reasonable expenses in bringing this motion. The Court finds that this amount is fair and reasonable under the circumstances.
CONCLUSION AND ORDER
Defendant’s motion to compel Plaintiff’s deposition is granted. Plaintiff is to appear for deposition at the offices of Mark R. Weiner & Associates at 655 N. Central Avenue, Suite #1125 in Glendale on March 6, 2020 at 10 a.m. unless Defendant stipulates to a different date, time, and/or location. Plaintiff and his attorney of record, Michael J. Libman, jointly and severally, are ordered to pay sanctions in the amount of $443.15 to Defendant, by and through counsel, within 30 days of service of notice of this order. Defendant shall provide notice and file proof of such with the Court.
