LAW & MOTION

 

SFL20982 MONROE v. FARRELL

The Motion to Quash the deposition subpoena for production of business records, filed by the Department of Child Support Services on 1/9/2020 (as amended on 1/29/2020), is GRANTED.

The requested business records sought by Ms. Monroe are confidential pursuant to California Family Code Section 17212. There are exceptions to the confidentiality provision but none of the exceptions are applicable. Additionally, there is no action pending before the court which would support the commencement of discovery. 

The court received and reviewed Ms. Monroe’s Affadavit to Strike Department’s Amended Motion to Quash. The court denies the request to strike the Amended Motion because there is no legal or factual basis to grant this request.

 

This court declines to issue a tentative ruling as to Ms. Monroe’s Application to Proceed to Reopen Litigation of Department’s Closed Case and her Notice to Remove Case to Equity Probate Within Ten Days. Ms. Monroe must present this application to the Presiding Judge of the Superior Court.
