Case No.: BC680927

[TENTATIVE] ORDER RE: MOTIONS TO COMPEL DISCOVERY RESPONSES FROM PLAINTIFF

Dept. 31

1:30 p.m.

February 20, 2020

Defendant’s motions are granted.  Plaintiff is ordered to serve verified responses to form interrogatories and demand to produce, inspect and copy documents and other tangible things, without objections, within ten days.  (Code Civ. Proc., §§ 2030.290(b), 2031.300(b); Sinaiko Healthcare Consulting, Inc., supra, 148 Cal.App.4th at 404.)

Defendant seeks sanctions against Plaintiff and Plaintiff’s counsel in the amount of $847.50 for each motion.  Sanctions are mandatory unless the party failing to timely respond to the discovery requests acted with substantial justification or the sanction would otherwise be unjust.  (Code Civ. Proc., §§ 2030.290(c), 2031.300(c).)  Although Defendant is entitled to sanctions, the Court finds Defendant’s request for sanctions to be excessive, given the motions are unopposed and virtually identical.  Therefore, the Court awards sanctions in a total amount of $882.50 (1-1/2 hour for preparing the motions at $175/hr, 2 hour for appearance time at $250/hr, plus $120.00 in filing fees).  Plaintiff and Plaintiff’s attorney of record are ordered to pay sanctions, jointly and severally, to Defendant, by and through counsel of record, in the total amount of $882.50 within twenty days.

Moving Party is ordered to give notice.
