Case Number: BC672766 Hearing Date: August 11, 2020 Dept: 32
nawid wadood, et al.,
Case No.: BC672766
Hearing Date: September 2, 2020
[TENTATIVE] order RE:
motions to compel discovery responses
Department #32 will be dark for motions on August 11, 2020. The parties are ordered to email the Court’s clerk at SSCDept32@lacourt.org to inform the clerk whether they are submitting on the Court’s tentative or whether they are requesting a hearing. If any party requests a hearing, one will be scheduled. If the parties do not email the Court’s clerk before the hearing time to request a hearing, they will waive the right to be heard and shall submit to this tentative order, which shall issue.
Defendant Jeehye Berglund (“Defendant”) moves to compel responses from Plaintiff Nadia Slshakshir (“Plaintiff”) to: (1) Request for Production of Documents, Set One (“RPD”); (2) Form Interrogatories, Set One (“FROG”); and (3) Special Interrogatories, Set One (“SROG”). Defendant served the written discovery on Plaintiff by mail on February 27, 2019. Plaintiff’s responses were thus due by April 3, 2019. As of the filing date of these motions, Defendant has not received responses from Plaintiff. Plaintiff has not opposed the motions, and there is nothing in the record suggesting that she has complied with her discovery obligations. Accordingly, the motions to compel responses to the RPD, FROG, and SROG are granted per Code of Civil Procedure sections 2030.290 and 2031.300.
Defendant seeks sanctions against Plaintiff (but not Plaintiff’s counsel) totaling $930 in connection with the motions. The Court concludes that Plaintiff’s failure to respond to the discovery is an abuse of the discovery process. The Court finds that this amount is fair and reasonable under the circumstances. Therefore, the request for sanctions is granted.
CONCLUSION AND ORDER
Defendant’s motions to compel responses to the RPD, FROG, and SROG are granted per
Code of Civil Procedure sections 2030.290 and 2031.300. Plaintiff is ordered to serve verified responses, without objections, within thirty (30) days of notice of this order.
Plaintiff (but not Plaintiff’s counsel) is ordered to pay monetary sanctions in the amount of $930 to Defendant, by and through counsel, within thirty (30) days of notice of this order.
Defendant is ordered to provide notice of this order and file proof of service of such.
