BC677822 PATRICK VARDAPOUR VS MAGDY ZOUEN ET AL

Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel Further Responses, Requests for Admissions

TENTATIVE RULING: The motion is DENIED. Moving party to give notice.

Case Number: BC677822    Hearing Date: January 13, 2020    Dept: 74

BC677822 PATRICK VARDAPOUR VS MAGDY ZOUEN ET AL

Plaintiff’s Motion for Issue or Evidence Sanctions and for Sanctions

TENTATIVE RULING: The motion is denied. The request for sanctions is denied.

Motion for Issue or Evidence Sanctions and for Sanctions

The motion seeks issue and evidence sanctions based on the failure to comply with a court order compelling production of documents.

Defendants maintain they have produced all documents in their possession. A respondent cannot be compelled to admit a fact in discovery, even where its truth is obvious. (Wimberly v. Derby Cycle Corp. (1997) 56 Cal. App. 4th 618, 634.) Plaintiff is arguing that he thinks defendants should have more documents. This is not a proper ground for a terminating sanction. That defendants did not produce documents which plaintiff produced to them earlier in this litigation does not establish they are withholding documents from the underlying actions.

The motion is denied.

Monetary Sanctions

The request for monetary sanction is denied. The request for monetary sanctions for a prior motion can only be brought as a separate motion for reconsideration.
