kathy pauline morris,

Plaintiff,

v.

hakob babajanyan, et al.,

Defendants.

Case No.: ****5885

Hearing Date: February 21, 2020

[TENTATIVE] order RE:

Motion to exclude plaintiff’s Designated Expert

Defendants Hakob Babajanyan and TLA Limousine, Inc. (“Defendants”) move to preclude Plaintiff Kathy Pauline Morris (“Plaintiff”) from calling her expert, Dr. Hyman Gross, M.D. (“Dr. Gross”), as a witness at trial because Plaintiff had not made Dr. Gross available for a deposition. In the alternative, Defendants seek to compel the deposition of Dr. Gross. The Court previously considered the motion on December 9, 2019, and continued the hearing to this date.

A court must exclude the expert opinion of any expert if the party offering that expert fails to make the expert available for deposition. (Code Civ. Proc., ; 2034.300, subd. (d).) Defendants concede that they took Gross’s deposition on February 4, 2020. (Declaration of Donavon Sawyer in Support of Status Report, ¶ 4.) Accordingly, the motion is denied.

Defendants now argue that the Court should preclude Gross’s testimony on other grounds. The Court cannot consider these arguments, as Defendants raised them for the first time in their February 6, 2019 filing rather than a noticed motion. Moreover, as far as the Court is concerned, the dispositive issue—Dr. Gross’s deposition—has been resolved. Therefore, the Court denies Defendants’ motion.

Plaintiff does not request sanctions. Defendants’ request for sanctions is denied. The Court finds that responsibility for this dispute lies equally with both parties. The parties should have resolved this issue without court intervention. Therefore, an award of sanctions for either party would be unjust.

CONCLUSION AND ORDER

Defendants’ motion to exclude Dr. Gross as a witness at trial is denied. Defendants’ request for sanctions is denied. Defendants shall provide notice and file proof of such with the Court.
