Case Number: BC673389 Hearing Date: December 03, 2019 Dept: 4B
[TENTATIVE] ORDER RE: PLAINTIFF’S MOTION TO SET ASIDE/VACATE JULY 5, 2019 DISCOVERY ORDER
On August 23, 2017, plaintiff Teesha Green (“Plaintiff”) filed this action against defendants Alyssia Bianca Chavis and Adebhyo Adegoriola Samuel (“Samuel”) for motor vehicle negligence arising out of an August 28, 2015 automobile accident. Samuel served Form Interrogatories, Special Interrogatories, Request for Production of Documents, and Request for Admissions on Plaintiff on November 8, 2018. On February 14, 2019, Samuel sent a meet and confer letter, but according to Samuel, Plaintiff did not respond and did not serve discovery responses.
On April 2, 2019, Samuel filed motions to compel Plaintiff’s responses. Plaintiff did not oppose and did not appear at the hearing. On July 5, 2019, the Court granted Samuel’s motions to compel and deem requests for admission admitted, and imposed monetary sanctions in the amount of $630. Plaintiff now seeks to vacate or set aside the July 5 order. Samuel does not oppose.
Plaintiff argues she did not receive notice of the motions to compel and deem admitted, she served the verified discovery responses on June 17, 2019 by email and first class mail, and she did not learn about the discovery motions until July 8, 2019. Plaintiff’s counsel attaches a June 17, 2019 email transmitting the verified discovery responses to defense counsel. Also, Plaintiff’s counsel attaches emails showing that counsel for the other defendant Chavis was equally ignorant of the discovery motions.
The filed versions of the discovery motions each attach a proof of service showing service on Plaintiff’s counsel by mail on April 1, 2019, but not service on counsel for the other defendant Chavis. Whether or not Samuel properly served Plaintiff with the discovery motions, by the time of the July 5, 2019 hearing they were moot as Plaintiff had already served verified discovery motions.
Accordingly, the Court GRANTS the unopposed motion and sets aside the July 5, 2019 order.
Moving party to give notice.
