[TENTATIVE] ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANT’S MOTION TO COMPEL A MENTAL EXAMINATION

Dept. 3

1:30 p.m.

November 12, 2019

1. Background Facts

Plaintiff, Louie Dubon filed this action against Defendant, Charles William Bradford for damages arising out of an automobile v. pedestrian accident. In response to form interrogatories, Plaintiff identified injuries to his right arm, loss of strength to right arm, right hand, right leg, right cheek, loss of front teeth, abdomen, and hips, high blood pressure, vertigo, loss of sexual capacity, loss of eyesight, hearing loss, memory loss, loss of balance, depression, anxiety, headaches, head trauma, contusions, fluid in the brain, and potential traumatic brain injury.

2. Prior Hearing

The Court was originally scheduled to hear Defendant’s motion to compel a neuropsychological examination on 10/09/19. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Court continued the matter to require (a) the parties to meet and confer further in an attempt to determine whether they can work out the terms of a stipulation that satisfies §2032.320 and (b) if the parties were unable to agree to the terms of a stipulation, to meet and confer concerning the scope of the proposed examination and the tests to be performed.

a. Garden Variety Emotional Distress Claim

Plaintiff continues to insist his traumatic brain injury and subsequent depression is nothing more than garden variety emotional distress that stems from the accident that forms the basis of the lawsuit. Plaintiff has not offered to enter into any stipulation in this regard. Notably, a traumatic brain injury is an injury that directly implicates one’s neuropsychological condition, and depression stemming from such injury is not normal emotional distress attendant to an automobile accident. The Court therefore finds Plaintiff must sit for a neuropsychological examination at this time.

b. Scope of Examination

It does not appear the parties met and conferred concerning the scope of the examination to be performed. Dr. Hinkin must limit his examination to the scope and manner set forth in the original notice of motion, dated 9/13/19, page 2, line 9 through page 3, line 23.

The motion sought to compel the examination on 10/19/19. 10/19/19 has passed. Counsel are ordered to meet and confer to agree on a date and time for the examination. If Plaintiff does not participate in the meet and confer in good faith, Defendant may unilaterally set the examination with at least ten days’ notice (extended per Code if by other than personal service).

c. Conclusion

The motion to compel is granted. Defendant is ordered to give notice.

Parties who intend to submit on this tentative must send an email to the court at sscdept3@lacourt.org indicating intention to submit on the tentative as directed by the instructions provided on the court website at www.lacourt.org.  If the department does not receive an email indicating the parties are submitting on the tentative and there are no appearances at the hearing, the motion may be placed off calendar. If a party submits on the tentative, the party’s email must include the case number and must identify the party submitting on the tentative.
