Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC655731    Hearing Date: February 19, 2020    Dept: 74

BC655731 YONG HWAN KIM ET AL VS SIMCO CONSTRUCTION ET AL

Plaintiff’s Unopposed Motion to Deem Matters Admitted and for Sanctions

TENTATIVE RULING: The motion is GRANTED. Plaintiffs are awarded sanctions in the amount of $600, against Chae Chul Sim dba Simco Construction, payable within 15 days. The court sets an OSC re striking the answer filed by Chae Chul Sim dba Simco Construction for failure to obtain counsel on March 19, 2020 at 8:30. Moving party to give notice.

On August 23, 2018, the court deemed related and consolidated cases BC655731 and BC593197, with BC593197 as the lead case. This order shall be entered in both cases.

The court finds defendant’s failure to respond a misuse of the discovery process. Sanctions have been sufficiently noticed. However, the court reduces the hourly rate ($670) and hours spent preparing this motion (2 hours) because both are unreasonable in light of counsel’s experience and the simplicity of this unopposed motion. (Kim Decl. ¶ 15.) The Court awards no time for reviewing an opposition and preparing a reply because there was no opposition. The Court finds one hour in appearance time is reasonable.

Accordingly, the court grants sanctions for a total of 2 hours to prepare the motion and appear at the hearing, at $300.00 per hour, plus one $60 filing fee, for a total of $660.
