Petitioner’s unopposed motion to bifurcate marital status and enter a status only judgment is GRANTED. Petitioner shall submit a status only judgment to the court.
SFL075553 BLOOM DISSOLUTION
Respondent’s Request for Order filed on 9/26/19, seeking to compel responses to Form Interrogatories, set #2, and to compel responses to a Request for Production of Documents, set #2, is GRANTED. Respondent’s request for discovery sanctions is GRANTED.
There is no responsive declaration filed by the Petitioner. The declaration of Ann Larson (Petitioner’s former attorney), filed on 10/18/19, fails to state the reasons why the discovery has not been complied with. The Memorandum of Points and Authorities, also filed on 10/18/19 only addresses Petitioner’s allegation that Respondent’s meet and confer attempts were insufficient. The court finds that Respondent’s meet and confer attempts were adequate.
Petitioner shall pay to Respondent, the sum of $1600 no later than 12/6/19. Petitioner is ordered to fully respond to the following: Form Interrogatories, set #2, items 7, 8, 9 and Request for Production of Documents, set #2, items 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
Respondent shall submit a proposed Order consistent with this tentative ruling.
