[TENTATIVE] ORDER FINDING MOTION TO QUASH DEPOSITION SUBPOENAS MOOT

Dept. 31

8:30 a.m.

September 16, 2020

Plaintiffs, Yair and Julie Ohana filed this action against Defendants, A&A Ready Mixed Concrete, Inc. and Lorenzo Taylor (collectively, “Defendants”) for damages arising from a motor vehicle accident.

Defendants propounded deposition subpoenas for production of business records to various entities requesting Plaintiff Yair Ohana’s (“Plaintiff”) medical records on 3/3/20. Plaintiff provides it objected to the subpoenas and attempted to meet and confer with Defendants concerning the scope and duration of the subpoenas. Plaintiff provides the meet and confer efforts continued until 3/27/20, where Defendants offered to withdraw the original subpoenas if Plaintiff agreed to Defendants amended subpoenas. Plaintiff asserts he attempted to continue meeting and conferring over the proposed amended subpoenas but did not receive a response from Defendants, so Plaintiff filed the instant motion that same date, 3/27/20.

Plaintiff’s motion was originally set to be heard 5/27/20. Based on current conditions, including but not limited to the spread of COVID-19, the court continued the hearing to 9/16/20 and ordered Plaintiff to give notice. (4/23/20.) Plaintiff filed notice of such on 5/4/20.

On 8/31/20, Defendants filed their opposition stating that the deposition subpoenas at which Plaintiff’s motions are directed were withdrawn on 3/30/20. Defendants state they thereafter issued amended subpoenas on 4/1/20, 5/7/20, 7/6/20, and 7/22/20; with no objections being asserted to the most recent 7/22/20 subpoenas. Moreover, Defendants state they have reserved the date of 12/3/20 for an IDC concerning the subject discovery dispute, which Plaintiff has agreed to participate in. (See Opp. Perkins Decl. ¿¿ 34-35, Exhs. CC-DD.)

Because the original subpoenas were withdrawn and amended subpoenas have been issued, the court finds Plaintiff’s motion is moot. The court orders the parties to continue to meet and confer regarding the subpoenas and to participate, if necessary, in the 12/3/20 IDC before filing any further motions concerning the subject discovery.

The sole remaining is whether sanctions should be imposed. CCP § 1987.2(a) permits the Court, in its discretion, to impose sanctions if it finds the motion was made or opposed in bad faith or without substantial justification or that one or more of the requirements of the subpoena was oppressive.

The court does not make such a finding in this case. Defendants’ evidence shows that on 3/27/20, Plaintiff gave Defendants approximately 20 minutes to respond to an email concerning the motion before filing it. The Court understands that the deadline to file a motion to quash was that same date. However, that deadline was not jurisdictional (see Slagle v. Superior Court (1989) 211 Cal.App.3d 1309, 1313) and, in light of the Defendants’ amended subpoenas, Plaintiff should not have incurred attorneys’ fees to file the motion while the parties were meeting and conferring over the subpoenas. For the foregoing reasons, the Court does not impose sanctions in Plaintiff’s favor. A demand that Defendants respond to an email within 20 minutes is not a reasonable attempt to meet and confer before filing the subject motions.

Plaintiff is ordered to give notice.

Parties who intend to submit on this tentative must send an email to the court at sscdept31@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. If the parties do not submit on the tentative, they should arrange to appear remotely.
