Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC700649    Hearing Date: January 31, 2020    Dept: 27

[TENATIVE] ORDER RE MOTION FOR TERMINATING SANCTIONS

On April 3, 2018, Plaintiff filed this action against Defendants Laura Najera Mendoza and Mendoza Revocable Living Trust alleging negligence based on Defendants’ dog attacking Plaintiff.

On February 7, 2019, Plaintiff served Form Interrogatories, Special Interrogatories, Demands for Production of Documents, and Requests for Admission on Defendant Mendoza. Responses were due on March 14, 2019. Defendant Mendoza did not respond, and Plaintiff filed motions to compel and a motion to deem the Requests for Admission  admitted. Defendant Mendoza did not oppose the motions. On August 27, 2019, the Court granted the motions to compel, ordered the RFAs deemed admitted, and ordered Defendant Mendoza to serve verified responses without objection within 20 days of the date of the order. The Court ordered Plaintiff to give notice of the ruling.

On December 27, 2019, Plaintiff filed a motion for terminating sanctions. Plaintiff’s counsel states he gave notice of the August 27, 2019 ruling that same day and attaches a Notice of Hearing with a proof of service showing the notice was mailed on August 27, 2019 to Defendants. Plaintiff contends Defendants did not comply with the order and asks for terminating sanctions. Defendants did not oppose the motion.

In effect, Plaintiff is requesting that the Court strike Defendants’ answer and allow Plaintiff to proceed by default. (Van Sickle v. Gilbert (2011) 196 Cal.App.4th 1495, 1519.) However, before a court can strike an answer as terminating sanctions, enter default and allow a plaintiff to seek a default judgment, the plaintiff must show that it served a statement of damages on the defendant. Plaintiff has not shown that here. Accordingly, the Court cannot grant the requested sanctions.  The Motion is DENIED.

Moving party to give notice.

Parties who intend to submit on this tentative must send an email to the Court at SSCDEPT27@lacourt.org indicating intention to submit on the tentative.
