SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
FOR THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES - CENTRAL DISTRICT
GUSTAVO PRIETO, ET AL.,
CASE NO: ****1826
[TENTATIVE] ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANT’S UNOPPOSED MOTIONS TO COMPEL AND MOTION TO DEEM RFAS ADMITTED
February 11, 2020
Defendant, AT&T Services, Inc. propounded special interrogatories, form interrogatories, RFAs, and RPDs on Plaintiff on 9/25/19. To date, despite multiple meet and confer efforts, Plaintiff has not served responses. Defendant therefore seeks an order compelling Plaintiff to respond, without objections, to the outstanding interrogatories and RPDs, deeming the RFAs admitted, and imposing sanctions.
Defendant’s motions to compel are granted. Plaintiff is ordered to serve verified responses to form interrogatories, special interrogatories, and RPDs, without objections, within ten days. CCP ;;2030.290(a),(b), 2031.300(a),(b).
Defendant’s motion to deem RFAs admitted is also granted. CCP ;2033.280(b).
Sanctions are mandatory. ;;2030.290(c), 2031.300(c), 2033.280(c). Defendant seeks sanctions in the amount of $847.50/motion. Defense Counsel bills at the rate of $175/hour. The Court awards one hour to prepare each form discovery motion. No opposition was filed and therefore no reply was necessary. The Court awards the requested 1.5 hours of time to appear, but only awards the time once. The Court therefore awards a total of 5.5 hours of attorney time at the requested rate of $175/hour, or $962.50 in attorneys’ fees. The Court also awards the requested $240 in costs.
Sanctions are sought and imposed against Plaintiff and his attorney of record, jointly and severally; they are ordered to pay sanctions to Moving Defendant, by and through its attorney of record, in the total amount of $1202.50, within twenty days.
Moving Defendant is ordered to give notice.
