MOTION TO COMPEL DEPOSITIONS AND REQUEST FOR SANCTIONS

MOVING PARTY: Plaintiffs Sherrae Hayes, Ph.D, Kalina Flores and Mia Watson

RESPONDING PARTY(S) Defendant The Regents of the University of California

PROOF OF SERVICE:

ANALYSIS

Motion to Compel Deposition of Defendant Regents’ PMQ

Counsel has not presented a meet and confer declaration which complies with CCP § 2016.040, which states: “A meet and confer declaration in support of a motion shall state facts showing a reasonable and good faith attempt at an informal resolution of each issue presented by the motion.” (Bold emphasis and underlining added.) After Defendant served its objection on October 11, 2019 (Gibson Decl., ¶ 6), Plaintiffs’ counsel only sent an email on September 24, 2019 which generally asserts that Plaintiffs are entitled to take the PMQ deposition for all areas Plaintiffs identified. Gibson Decl, ¶ 7; Exh. E. Although Gibson states that she conferred with Defendants’ counsel on November 26, 2019, December 6, 2019 and December 10, 2019 (Gibson Decl., ¶¶ 8 – 10; Exhs. F & G), there is no indication that she attempted to informally resolve each issue presented by deposition topics 16-35.

Accordingly, the motion to compel the PMQ deposition and request for sanctions is DENIED.

Motion to Compel Deposition of Jennette Valdivia

This should have been filed as a separate motion, with a separate filing fee paid.

Moreover, in the separate statement, Plaintiffs have not made the fact specific showing of good cause for the 17 categories of documents sought to be produced by Valdivia.

The motion to compel the deposition of Jennette Valdivia and request for sanctions is DENIED.
