Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC670057    Hearing Date: October 31, 2019    Dept: 2

Candelas v. Nguyen, DDS

Four (4) Motions by Defendant, Manuel Nguyen, for Order Compelling Plaintiff’s Verified Responses to Form interrogatories, Set One; Special interrogatories, Set One; Request for Production of Documents, Set One; and Statement of Damages; Request for Sanctions, filed on 10/04/2019, are GRANTED.

Plaintiff, George Candelas, is ordered to provide verified responses to Form interrogatories, Set One; Special interrogatories, Set One; Request for Production of Documents, Set One; and Statement of Damages, without objections within 10 days. Cal Code Civ Procedure § 2030.290(b), § 2031.300(b), § 425.11(b). Untimely responses result in a waiver of objections.  Cal. Code Civil Procedure §2030.290(a), § 2031.300(a).

Imposition of sanctions against Plaintiff is warranted for the failure to timely respond to authorized methods of discovery, which is discovery abuse. Cal Code Civil Procedure § 2023.010(d).

Accordingly, the Court imposes total sanctions of $1,000 for all four motions against Plaintiff.

The Moving Party is ordered to give notice.
