SFL 60090 Chapman v. Goldsberry

Respondent’s Request for Order to Compel Discovery Responses and for Sanctions is GRANTED.

The court finds that Petitioner’s initial responses were untimely. Respondent gave Petitioner an extension of time to respond and set forth a deadline of 4/21/17.  Instead of producing the discovery answers on 4/21/17, Petitioner mailed her responses on 4/21/17 which resulted in Respondent receiving the responses on 4/24/17, As such, any objections that Petitioner may have had to the interrogatories and the document requests, are deemed waived.

As to the Form Interrogatories, Petitioner is ordered to provide complete answers to Form Interrogatory number 6, 7, and 17. The answers shall be signed under oath pursuant to CCP 2030.250(a).

As to the Special Interrogatories, Petitioner is ordered to provide complete answers to Special Interrogatory number 6 and 7. The answers shall be signed under oath pursuant to CCP 2030.250(a).

As to the Request for Production of Documents, Petitioner is ordered to provide complete answers to Request number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, and 15, and she must produce the requested documents that are in her possession and/or control.  The answers shall be signed under oath pursuant to CCP 2031.250(a).

All answers and documents are due no later than 8/11/17. 

Petitioner shall pay discovery sanctions to Respondent in the amount of $1000, payable at the rate of $100 per month until paid in full.  The monthly payments shall commence on 9/1/17 and shall be due no later than the 5th of each month. The court finds that Petitioner did not act with substantial justification when she refused to produce the documents that were requested of her.
