[TENTATIVE] ORDER TAKING MOTION TO COMPEL OFF CALENDAR

Dept. 3

1:30 p.m.

January 8, 2020

The Court continued the hearing on this motion to compel a second IME from 12/26/19 to 1/08/20.  The Court indicated the motion would be taken off calendar if Plaintiff attended the second IME on 12/27/19.  The Court is hopeful that Plaintiff attended the IME on 12/27/19, and the Court’s tentative ruling is to take the motion off calendar as moot.  If Plaintiff did not appear for the IME on 12/27/19, Counsel must appear at the hearing and be prepared to address the status of the IME and any issues relating to imposition of sanctions. 

Defendant is ordered to give notice. 

Parties who intend to submit on this tentative must send an email to the court at sscdept3@lacourt.org indicating intention to submit on the tentative as directed by the instructions provided on the court website at www.lacourt.org.  If the department does not receive an email indicating the parties are submitting on the tentative and there are no appearances at the hearing, the motion may be placed off calendar.  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.

[TENTATIVE] ORDER

Dept. 3

1:30 p.m.

December 26, 2019

1. Background Facts

Plaintiff, Taufi Jose Sanki filed this action against Defendant, City of Los Angeles for damages arising out of a motorcycle accident that occurred when Plaintiff’s motorcycle encountered a pothole on a city street.

2. Motion to Compel Second IME

Defendant filed and served this motion to compel a second IME on 12/03/19, setting it for hearing on 12/26/19. Plaintiff opposes the motion due to insufficient filing and service. Sixteen court days after 12/03/19 falls on 12/26/19, but Defendant failed to add five additional days due to the mail service of the moving papers. The motion is therefore improperly served per CCP §1005(b), and is denied.

Notably, any reply to the opposition was due on or before 12/18/19. As of 12/20/19, the Court has not received any reply to the opposition, either online or in its courtesy copy box. The Court will not consider a late-filed reply.

3. Motions to Compel Responses to Discovery

Defendant propounded a Corrected First Supplemental Demand for Inspection and Production of Documents and Corrected First Supplemental Interrogatory on 5/30/19. To date, despite a meet and confer attempt, Plaintiff has not served responses. Defendant therefore seeks to compel responses to the discovery and also seeks imposition of sanctions.

Notably, while Plaintiff did oppose the motion to compel a second IME, Plaintiff did not oppose these motions to compel. Defendant’s motions are granted. Plaintiff is ordered to serve verified responses to the outstanding discovery, 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 $800/motion. Defense Counsel values his service at the rate of $400/hour; the Court reduces this rate to $200/hour. The Court awards the requested one hour to prepare each motion to compel. The Court awards the requested one hour to appear, but only awards the time once. The Court awards a total of three hours of attorney time at the rate of $200/hour, for a total of $600 in attorneys’ fees.

Sanctions are sought and imposed against Plaintiff and his attorney of record, jointly and severally; they are ordered to pay sanctions to Defendant, by and through counsel of record, in the total amount of $600, within twenty days.

Defendant is ordered to give notice.

Parties who intend to submit on this tentative must send an email to the court at sscdept3@lacourt.org indicating intention to submit on the tentative as directed by the instructions provided on the court website at www.lacourt.org.  If the department does not receive an email indicating the parties are submitting on the tentative and there are no appearances at the hearing, the motion may be placed off calendar. 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.
