CASE NO: BC694439

[TENTATIVE] ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANT’S UNOPPOSED MOTIONS TO COMPEL

Dept. 3

1:30 p.m.

December 17, 2019

Defendant, Juan J. Castro propounded form interrogatories, special interrogatories, and RPDs on Plaintiff on 9/03/19. To date, despite multiple attempts to meet and confer, Plaintiff has not served responses. Defendant therefore seeks an order compelling Plaintiff to respond, without objections, to the outstanding discovery and to pay sanctions.

Defendant’s motions are granted. Plaintiff is ordered to serve verified responses to form interrogatories, special interrogatories, and RPDs, without objections, within ten days. CCP §§2030.290(a),(b), 2031.300(a),(b).

Sanctions are mandatory. §§2030.290(c), 2031.300(c). Defendant seeks sanctions in the amount of $1155/motion. Defense Counsel bills at the rate of $225/hour. The Court awards one hour to prepare each form motion to compel. The Court awards three hours to appear at the hearing; the Court finds it is not reasonable to require Plaintiff to pay for Defendant’s choice to retain an attorney outside of Los Angeles County. The Court awards a total of six hours of attorney time at the rate of $225/hour, for a total of $1350 in attorneys’ fees. The Court also awards three filing fees of $60 each, or $180 in costs.

Sanctions are sought and imposed against Plaintiff only and not against his attorney of record; he is ordered to pay sanctions to Defendant, by and through counsel of record, in the total amount of $1530, within twenty days.

Moving Defendant is ordered to give notice.

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.
