Hearing Date: November 21, 2019
[TENTATIVE] order RE:
motion to compel deposition
Cross-Complainant Dai Sook Yoo (“Yoo”) moves to compel the deposition of Cross-Defendant Shin Kwang Park (“Park”). Park opposes the motion, which is granted.
Per Code of Civil Procedure section 2025.450, if a party to the action fails to appear for deposition after service of a deposition notice and the party has not served a valid objection to that deposition notice, the party that noticed the deposition may move for an order to compel the deponent to attend and testify at deposition. (Code Civ. Proc., §2025.450, subd. (a).)
Yoo has the right to take Park’s deposition without leave of court at any time after Park appeared in the action. (See Code Civ. Proc., § 2025.210, subd. (a).) Yoo noticed Park’s deposition for February 26, 2019, April 5, 2019, and September 27, 2019. Park has not sat for deposition, as Park has claimed unavailability for all these dates. (See Declaration of Amelia McDonald, ¶¶ 3-13.) Yoo has therefore demonstrated that Park has failed to appear for deposition.
In opposition, Park argues that he properly objected to Yoo’s deposition notice on the basis that Park was unavailable on the noticed date. A party may object to a deposition notice based on an “error or irregularity” in the deposition notice. (See Code Civ. Proc., § 2025.410, subd. (a).) Yoo’s unavailability is not an error or irregularity in the deposition notice. Moreover, Yoo afforded Park three opportunities to appear, and each time Park claimed to be unavailable, which suggests that Park is not acting in good faith. Accordingly, Park’s objections were not proper. Park must appear for deposition.
Park also argues that his unavailability “is an issue to be worked out between the parties and does not require court intervention.” (Opposition, at p. 4.) Yoo has noticed Park’s deposition for multiple dates, and Park has yet to identify a date certain on which he will appear for deposition. Court intervention is therefore warranted.
CONCLUSION AND ORDER
Yoo’s motion to compel Park’s deposition is granted. Park shall appear for a deposition within thirty (30) days of notice of this order, unless Yoo stipulates to extend the deadline. Yoo shall provide notice and file proof of such with the Court.
