CL20-084730             Rocky Top Rentals v. Warner

This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s application for writ of possession as well as its motion for leave to amend the complaint.  For the reasons discussed more fully below, both motions are denied without prejudice.

The matter is hereby set for a case-management conference (“CMC”) on May 15, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., in Department 6.  Counsel shall timely file a case-management statement prior to the CMC hearing.  (See Local Rule 4.00.8, subd. I [“At least fifteen (15) calendar days before the scheduled case management conference, each party shall file with the court and serve on all other parties a completed case management conference statement”], italics added.)   No appearances are required.

Discussion

I.                   Application for Writ of Possession

Code of Civil Procedure sections 512.010 et seq. govern applications for writs of possession.  Section 512.030 requires that, prior to the hearing on a writ of possession,  Defendants be served with: (1) a copy of the summons and complaint; (2) notice of the application for writ of possession and hearing; and (3) a copy of the application and any supporting affidavits prior to the hearing.  (Id. at subd. (a)(1)-(3); see also id. at § 512.020 [“Except as otherwise provided in this section, no writ shall be issued … except after a hearing on a noticed motion”].) 

Despite this application being originally filed in November 2021, no such notice or proof of service has been filed and none of the statutorily enumerated exceptions to the noticed motion require appear on their face to be met.  The petition is accordingly denied without prejudice for failure to satisfy the requirements of Section 512.010.

II.                Motion for Leave to Amend

Motions for leave to amend to file an answer are governed by Code of Civil Procedure section 473(a)(1), which provides that the same may be permitted “in furtherance of justice, and on any terms as may be [deemed] proper [by the court].”  Procedural requirements for the motion include: (1) a copy of the proposed amended pleading; (2) a separate declaration detailing the effect of the amendment, why it is necessary and proper, when the facts giving rise to the amended allegations were discovered, and why it was not made earlier.  (Rules of Court, Rule 3.1324(a)-(b) [“motion to amend a pleading before trial must … [i]nclude a copy of the proposed … amended pleading” and to detail the effects of the proposed amendment], italics added.) 

The general policy is to permit liberal amendment to pleadings where no prejudice is demonstrated.  (Nestle v. City of Santa Monica (1972) 6 Cal.3d 920, 939 [affirming the general rule allowing for liberal amendment of pleadings]; Simons v. County of Kern (1965) 234 Cal.App.2d 362-367-368].)  Failure to grant leave is a frequent source of reversible error.  (Douglas v. Superior Court (1989) 215 Cal.App.3d 155, 158 [“it is a rare case in which ‘a court will be justified in refusing a party leave to amend his pleadings so that he may properly present his case’ ”]; see also Edwards v. Superior Court (2001) 93 Cal.App.4th 172, 180 [“[l]eave to amend should be denied only where the facts are not in dispute, and the nature of the plaintiff’s claim is clear” but nonetheless no liability exists and no amendment would change the result].)

Here, Plaintiff has failed to satisfy the procedural requirements of Rule 3.1324, to wit: Plaintiff has not included with his motion or the supporting documents a proposed amended pleading.  Rule 3.1324 provides that such proposed amended pleadings must be included.  Accordingly, the motion for leave to amend is denied on procedural grounds but without prejudice to refile.


CU0000092                Doe, Angela R. v. Davis, John

This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s motion to compel further responses to her special interrogatories set two (nos. 75-80) and for corresponding monetary sanctions.  Defendant thereafter filed his own motion for protective order as to the same and also seeks monetary sanctions.  For the reasons discussed more fully below, Plaintiff’s motion is granted as prayed.  Defendant’s motion is denied.  Defendant is ordered to provide verified, further responses to Plaintiff’s Special Interrogatories, Set One, Nos. 75-80 within thirty (30) days of notice of the Court’s order. 

In connection with its own motion, Plaintiff is awarded attorneys’ fees and costs as prayed in the amount of $2,685.00.  In connection with Defendant’s unsuccessful motion for protective order, Plaintiff is awarded an additional $2,450.00 in attorney’s fees.

Analysis

I.                   Defendant’s Motion for Protective Order is Denied as Untimely

Code of Civil Procedure section 2030.090 provides that when “interrogatories have been propounded, the responding party … may promptly move for a protective order.”  (Id. at subd. (a).)  The term “promptly” is not precisely defined in the statute, but Section 2030.260 requires that, “[w]ithin 30 days after service of interrogatories, the party to whom the interrogatories are propounded shall serve the original of the response … on the propounding party ….”  (Id. at subd. (a).)  Failure to comply with the time requirements subjects the responding party to a waiver of “any right to exercise … any objection to the interrogatories, including one based on privilege or on the protection for work product ….”  (Id. at § 2030.290(a).)  “Common sense compels the conclusion that a trial court cannot extend a time period that has already expired.”  (People v. Am. Sur. Ins. Co. (1999) 75 Cal.App.4th 719, 727.) 

To give effect to the statutory scheme, it appears that a motion for protective order must, as a general rule, be filed before a party responds to SROGs (even if by objection) and certainly before the propounding party files a motion to compel responses to the same.  Our high court’s discussion of the subject in Fairmont Ins. Co. v. Superior Court (2000) 22 Cal.4th 245, supports the conclusion that the responding parties options are to either object or, alternatively to seek a protective order.

Of course, a party objecting to particular discovery requests … may seek a protective order. [Citations omitted.]  In such case, the burden is on the party seeking the protective order to show good cause for whatever order is sought.  [Citation omitted].

 

Or a party may object to a particular discovery request, placing the burden on the party seeking discovery to enforce discovery through a motion to compel. [Citations omitted].  (Id. at 255.)

As noted in Fairmont, the question between the two methods of proceeding is primarily one of burden shifting.  By undertaking the protective order, Plaintiff is typically the party held to the initial burden.  Elsewise, they may object and place the burden on the propounding party to seek a motion to compel.  One exception of course, as this Court previously noted, is where a party objects to the number of requests made. Objections to the number of SROGs are not properly made by way of objection and must instead be made by motion for protective order.  (See Catanese v. Superior Court (1996) 46 Cal.App.4th 1159, 1165, disapproved on other grounds in Lewis v. Superior Court (1999) 19 Cal.4th 1232 [where proponent serves interrogatories “together with a supporting declaration, [the responding party] will then be put to the choice of answering without objection as to number or moving for a protective order”].)

Here, Defendant elected to address the subject discovery, originally propounded on or about December 5, 2022, by submitting objections without substantive response on or about January 3, 2023.  In response to Plaintiff’s meet-and-confer attempts, Defendant thereafter issued amended responses on or about January 18, 2023, again only interposing objections without substantive response.  Then, on January 30, 2023, nearly sixty (60) days after the original discovery was propounded, after responding twice, and after Plaintiff’s filed their motion to compel, Defendant filed his motion for protective order.  Defendant offers no case law in support of his contention that he may proceed in this fashion.

Assuming arguendo the Court has discretion to consider a motion for protective order filed after the time to respond has elapsed, after two sets of objections have issued, and after the other party has filed a motion to compel, the Court would decline to do so here.  Under those circumstances, the Court cannot find that Defendant moved “promptly” for the requested protective order and would similarly deny it on that basis.

Accordingly, Defendant’s motion for protective order is denied.  And while this failure precludes the Court from considering Defendant’s contention that the number of interrogatories is excessive or that the underlying declaration in support of the same is insufficient (such may not be raised in opposition to a motion to compel under Catanese), his other substantive claims raised in the opposition to the motion to compel will still be considered in the context of that motion.  Defendant is thereby afforded adequate protection in connection with these discovery requests.

II.                Motion to Compel Further Responses

(1)   Procedural Requirements

Prior to bringing a motion to compel further responses to SROGS, the moving party must first make efforts to meet and confer in good faith with the responding party; they must also file, concurrent with their motion, a declaration attesting to the same.  (See Code of Civil Procedure § 2030.300(b)(1).) Nonetheless, a discovery motion need not be denied automatically based upon the moving party’s failure to meet and confer in good faith.  (See Obregon v. Superior Court (1998) 67 Cal.App.4th 424, 434-435 [holding that judicial discretion is broad and “discovery should not be automatically denied” when meet-and-confer efforts are imperfect].) Additionally, any motion that seeks to compel further responses must be accompanied by a separate statement providing all information necessary to understand each discovery request and all the responses at issue. (Rules of Court, Rule 3.1345.)

Here, Plaintiff’s motion includes the declaration of his counsel, which, despite Defendant’s assertions, adequately demonstrates that meet and confer requirements were satisfied.  Defendant’s request to deny the motion on this basis does not comport with the ruling in Obregon.

Plaintiff has also filed a Rule 3.1345 compliant separate statement precisely identifying the requests at issue, Defendant’s verbatim response thereto, and the reasons why a further response should be compelled.

(2)   General Legal Principles

When the propounding party timely files a motion to compel further responses, the burden is on the responding party to justify any objections made or the failure to fully answer the interrogatories.  (Coy v. Superior Court (1962) 58 Cal.2d 210, 220-221; Fairmont, supra, 22 Cal.4th at 255.)  Here, Plaintiff’s motion is timely and the burden is on Defendant to justify any alleged deficiencies in the responses.

(3)   Defendant’s Objections to SROGs 75-80

Defendant does not substantively respond to any of the SROGs at issue.  In his initial January 3, 2023 response, he has interposed the following series of identical objections to each:

Objection, This request violates the attorney client work product doctrine and seeks the premature disclosure of expert information. Further, Defendant objects to Special Interrogatories No. 75 through 80 in that they violate CCP Section 2030.030 and 2030.240. No party shall as a matter of right propound to any other party more than 35 specially prepared interrogatories. Previously, Defendant objected to Special Interrogatories No. 36-74, which matter is still pending before the Court.

Defendant’s amended response to each of the SROGS was substantially similar and included only the additional objection that the material sought would violate the attorney-client privilege:

Objection, This request violates the attorney client privilege, attorney client work product doctrine and seeks the premature disclosure of expert information. Further, Defendant objects to Special Interrogatories No. 75 through 80 in that they violate CCP Section 2030.030 and 2030.240. No party shall as a matter of right propound to any other party more than 35 specially prepared interrogatories.

There are two objections raised in Defendant’s initial response for the Court to address as to each SROG: (1) propounding SROGs in excess of thirty-five in violation of Code of Civil Procedure sections 2030.030 and 2030.240; (2) violation of the attorney-client work-product doctrine by seeking premature disclosure of expert information.  In addition, as noted above, Defendant also raises a belated objection based on attorney-client privilege in both his amended response and opposition to the motion.  Two of these objections can be quickly addressed as to all of the SROGs.

As to the objection on the basis that the SROGs propounded are in excess of thirty-five in violation of Code of Civil Procedure sections 2030.030 and 2030.240, the Court has already addressed this identical issue in its prior order addressing a prior discovery motion for these parties.  Such objections are not properly made in opposition to a motion to compel.  (Catanese, supra, 46 Cal.App.4th at 1166 [where proponent serves interrogatories “together with a supporting declaration, [the responding party] will then be put to the choice of answering without objection as to number or moving for a protective order”].)

As to Defendant’s objection that disclosure of the requested information would violate attorney-client privilege, Defendant failed to raise this objection in his initial response on January 3, 2023.  (See Declaration of Tuan Ho, Exhibit ‘B’ thereto.)  He cannot now belatedly raise such an objection in an amended response or in his opposition to the motion to compel.  (See Scottsdale Ins. Co. v. Superior Court (1997) 59 Cal.App.4th 263, 274 [“failure to include an objection expressly based upon attorney-client privilege in the initial response results in waiver of the attorney-client privilege”]; see also Coy, supra, 58 Cal.2d at 216-217 [disapproving of a party “add[ing] new objections which had not been included with those [initially] served” and noting “there is no provision for the subsequent filing of objections”].)

Accordingly, the Court will further consider only Defendant’s objections that disclosure of the requested information would violate attorney-client work-product doctrine insofar as they seek premature disclosure of expert information.

  1. SROG No. 75

SROG no. 75 makes the following request: “State the name and address of the lab where you had your blood drawn in order to be tested for Herpes. Plaintiff is requesting the address of the local office of the lab that you went to, not the address of the lab in Ohio.” 

Plaintiff contends that the parties are suing each other in connection with alleged transmission of sexually transmitted infections and that the identity of the lab “is necessary for the issuance of a subpoena duces tecum for records relevant and probative of sexually transmitted diseases at issue in this matter.”  Plaintiff contends that the identity of the lab is not protected by attorney-client privilege, attorney work-product doctrine, and that substantive response does not require the disclosure of any expert information, including the identity, opinions, conclusions, legal research, or theories of said experts.

Defendant counters that the “information of consultants are protected unless disclosed through an expert exchange.”  More specifically, Defendant contends that the attorney work-product doctrine codified in Code of Civil Procedure section 2018.020 protects the “disclosure of identifying information of a party’s consultants prior to them being disclosed as testifying witnesses.  Defendant relies on our Third District Court of Appeal’s decision in South Tahoe Public Utility Dist. v. Superior Court (1979) 90 Cal.App.3d 135, in support of his position. 

South Tahoe is clearly distinguishable from the case at bar.  The interrogatory at issue in South Tahoe specifically requested that the responding party “disclos[e] … the names and addresses of experts it had consulted with and who might be called to testify at a presently unscheduled trial.”  (Id. at 137.)  It stated verbatim:

Have you consulted with any experts concerning any of the issues raised in the complaint? If so, please state the names, addresses, and fields of expertise of each of said persons, except those persons who will not under any circumstances whatsoever, including impeachment, be called by you as a witness in this action.” (Italics in original.)  (Id.)

The responding party noted that it had dealt with such consultants concerning the issues and that it had not decided whether or not to use the same at trial.  It declined to provide the information on the basis that such premature disclosure would violate attorney work-product doctrine.  The court ultimately held that “the demand for disclosure of the expert witnesses who might be called at trial was premature and the order compelling compliance therewith was an abuse of discretion.”  (Id. at 139.)

Here, Plaintiff makes no such request for the name and addresses of Defendant’s expert witnesses.  She seeks only the name and address of a lab where Defendant was tested for one of the infections at issue in the complaint and cross-complaint.  Defendant’s declaration in support of his opposition contains only the conclusory claim that it has engaged several consultants in preparation for this matter and that some have evaluated Defendant.  Defendant’s declaration fails to adequately establish that the lab in question is a consultant hired by the Defense or that the results ultimately to be produced were procured as part of some expert consultation that is otherwise presently protected from disclosure.

Defendant has failed to meet his burden to justify his failure to provide the requested information and he is ordered to provide further response as prayed.

  1. SROG No. 76

SROG no. 76 makes the following request: “State the name and address of the medical facility where you had your blood drawn in order to be tested for Herpes. Plaintiff is requesting the address of the local medical facility that you went to, not the address of the lab in Ohio.”  Plaintiff offers a substantially similar argument and justification for this request, to wit: the identity of the medical facility is necessary for the issuance of a subpoena and is not protected by any applicable doctrine.  Plaintiff contends that revealing the name and address of the medical facility performing testing does not require the disclosure of any expert information – identity or otherwise.  Defendant offers effectively the same objections as are discussed in No. 75.

Again, the Court is not persuaded and for the same reasons articulated in No. 75.  The Court finds Defendant has failed to meet his burden to justify his failure to provide the requested information and he is ordered to provide further response as prayed.

  1. SROG No. 77

SROG no. 77 makes the following request: “State the full name and address of the medical professional who provided the order for you to get your blood drawn in order to be tested for Herpes.”  Plaintiff argues that release of the identity of the medical doctor(s) is necessary for issuance of a subpoena and is not protected or require disclosure of expert information.  Defendant relies on the same general arguments and declaration statement in opposition.  Here, Defendant fails to adequately demonstrate in his moving papers that the doctor at issue who provided the blood-draw order is a retained consultant or expert or to explain otherwise how the disclosure of her or his name would in some fashion “require [Defendant] to reveal the consultants his attorneys have hired for the defense and prosecution of his cross-complaint.”

The Court finds Defendant has failed to meet his burden to justify his failure to provide the requested information.  He is again ordered to provide further response as prayed.

  1. SROG Nos. 78, 79, and 80

SROG no. 78 makes the following request: “In your response to Special Interrogatory Number 4, you stated: ‘Defendant was prescribed Valacyclovir for diagnostic purposes.’ Please state the full name and address of the person that prescribed this medication. “

SROG no. 79 makes the following request: “In your cross complaint, at paragraph 16, line 12, you allege: ‘Davis also tested positive for Hepatitis C.’ With respect to said allegation, state all facts upon which you base your allegation that you have tested positive for Hepatitis C.”

SROG no. 80 makes the following request: With respect to the allegation noted in interrogatory 12 herein, (relative to testing positive for Hepatitis C), state the full name and address of the lab where you had your blood drawn that showed this positive test result.”

With respect to Nos. 78, 79, and 80, the parties again advance substantively identical arguments as those discussed in Nos. 75, 76, and 77.  And, for the same reasons discussed therein, the Court concludes Defendant has failed to meet his burden to show that the requested information would lead to premature disclosure of expert information in violation of South Tahoe.  He is ordered to provide further response as prayed.

III.             Requests for Sanctions

Code of Civil Procedure section 2030.300(d) provides for mandatory monetary sanctions “against any party, person, or attorney who unsuccessfully makes or opposes a motion to compel a further response to interrogatories, unless [the court]  finds that the one subject to the sanction acted with substantial justification or that other circumstances make the imposition of the sanction unjust.”  Section 2030.090(d) provides for the in the context of the unsuccessful making of or opposition to a motion. 

Given that the Court has granted Plaintiff’s motion and denied Defendant’s motion for protective order, it is self-evident that Defendant has both unsuccessfully made a motion under Section 2030.090 and also unsuccessfully opposed Plaintiff’s motion to compel further responses under Section 2030.300. The only remaining question is whether there are circumstances indicating “substantial justification” or other circumstances “mak[ing] the imposition of the sanction unjust.”  Defendant offers no compelling argument demonstrating the existence of such circumstances and the Court finds none exist.  Monetary sanctions are thus mandatory.

In connection with its own motion to compel, Plaintiff seeks $2,685 in attorneys’ fees and costs.  In its opposition to Defendant’s motion, Plaintiff seeks an additional $2,450 in attorney’s fees.  As to both, Plaintiff’s counsel has submitted a declaration attesting to the time spent, and the applicable rates of compensation. Plaintiff’s counsel indicates that he has twenty-two (22) years in civil litigation and that his current hourly rate is $350.00.  For the opposition, he seeks compensation for 7 hours.  For the motion to compel, he seeks compensation for an additional 7.5 hours and also a $60.00 as a filing fee.

Such fees and costs are reasonable under the circumstances and they are granted as prayed. No sanctions are awarded to Defendant.


CU0000356                Lucero v. Lutz

This matter is before the Court on Respondent’s unopposed motion for attorney’s fees.  Respondent seeks $1,620.00 in fees pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 527.6.  For the reasons discussed more fully below, Respondent’s motion is granted as prayed.  Respondent is directed to submit a conforming order within ten (10) days of the Court’s order.

Analysis

Motions for attorney’s fees made in connection with civil harassment order proceedings are governed by Code of Civil Procedure section 527.6.  Section 527.6(s) provides in pertinent part:  “The prevailing party in an action brought pursuant to this section may be awarded court costs and attorney’s fees, if any.”  “[T]he decision whether to award attorney fees to a prevailing party—plaintiff or defendant—under section 527.6[(s)] is a matter committed to the discretion of the trial court.”  (Krug v. Maschmeier (2009) 172 Cal.App.4th 796, 802.)  Defendant may seek recovery of attorney’s fees even where plaintiff’s action was brought in “good faith” and there is no showing of either malice or bad faith in bringing the action.  (See id. at 802-803 [“… both plaintiffs and defendants in section 527.6 proceedings have an equal opportunity to recover their fees, as well as costs, if they prevail”].)

Section 527.6 does not define “prevailing party” specifically for purposes of that statute, but the term is defined elsewhere in the Code of Civil Procedure.  However, Section 1032(a)(4) defines the term as including “a defendant in whose favor a dismissal is entered” or “a defendant where neither plaintiff nor defendant obtains any relief[.]”  (See also Adler v. Vaicius (1993) 21 Cal.App.4th 1770 [affirming trial court’s award of attorney fees to defendant as “prevailing party” where dismissal was entered in his favor].)  The latter definition is appropriate here and the Court will utilize that definition for purposes of Section 527.6.  (See id. at 1777 [“Since section 527.6 does not define ‘prevailing party,’ the general definition of ‘prevailing party’ in section 1032 may be used”]; see also Elster v. Friedman (1989) 211 Cal.App.3d 1439, 1443.)

Petitioner’s request for temporary restraining order was denied by the Court on October 10, 2022.  Thereafter, Petitioner’s request for a permanent restraining was denied on November 14, 2022.   Respondent is therefore, under the definition contained in Section 1032(a)(4), the “prevailing party” for purposes of this motion. 

Respondent seeks compensation for 5.4 hours of attorney time billed at $300.00 per hour.  In support of the requested fees, Respondent has the submitted the declaration of counsel, which attests to counsel’s experience and billing rate, and also contains an accompanying billing statement with a detailed breakdown of the time spent and activities completed in connection with this matter.  The Court finds both the billing rate and number of hours reasonable under the circumstances.

The Court is in receipt of Ms. Lucero’s proof of service, declaration, and purported settlement agreement between the parties filed on March 17, 2023.  The copy submitted to the Court does not appear to bear the signature of Mr. Lutz and the Court is not inclined to modify its prior tentative as a result of this filing or to otherwise give the unexecuted agreement any legal effect.

Accordingly, the Court exercises its discretion to grant the petition and awards fees in the full amount prayed.


CU19-083425             Fire Insurance v. Powermax et al.

This matter is before the Court for a continued hearing on Defendant/Cross-Defendant Powermax’s motion to dismiss based on failure to prosecute.  For the reasons discussed more fully below, Powermax’s motion is denied.

Analysis

Dismissal for delay in prosecution is governed by Code of Civil Procedure sections 581.410 et seq.  Section 583.410 provides that the “court may in its discretion dismiss an action for delay in prosecution pursuant to this article on its own motion or on motion of the defendant if to do so appears to the court appropriate under the circumstances of the case.”  (Id. at subd. (a).)  Any such dismissal “shall be pursuant to the procedure and in accordance with the criteria prescribed by rules adopted by the Judicial Council.”  As is relevant here, such dismissal may occur after either “[s]ervice is not made within two years after the action is commenced against the defendant” or “[t]he action is not brought to trial within … three years after the action is commenced against the defendant ….”  (Id. at § 583.420.)

Rule of Court 3.1342(e) provides a list of the relevant factors the Court must consider in the determination of this type of motion.   (See also City of Los Angeles (1976) 62 Cal.App.3d 543, 555.) Those include all of the following:

(1)  The court's file in the case and the declarations and supporting data submitted by the parties and, where applicable, the availability of the moving party and other essential parties for service of process;

(2)  The diligence in seeking to effect service of process;

(3)  The extent to which the parties engaged in any settlement negotiations or discussions;

(4)  The diligence of the parties in pursuing discovery or other pretrial proceedings, including any extraordinary relief sought by either party;

(5)  The nature and complexity of the case;

(6)  The law applicable to the case, including the pendency of other litigation under a common set of facts or determinative of the legal or factual issues in the case;

(7)  The nature of any extensions of time or other delay attributable to either party;

(8)  The condition of the court's calendar and the availability of an earlier trial date if the matter was ready for trial;

(9)  Whether the interests of justice are best served by dismissal or trial of the case; and

(10)  Any other fact or circumstance relevant to a fair determination of the issue.

(Rules of Court, Rule 3.1342(e).)  In addition to considering those factors, Rule 3.1342 also advises that the “court must be guided by the policies set forth in Code of Civil Procedure section 583.130.”  Section 583.130 provides that “the policy favoring trial or other disposition of an action on the merits [is] generally to be preferred over the policy that requires dismissal for failure to proceed with reasonable diligence in the prosecution ….”  (Id.)

Here, it is undisputed that the case falls within the timeframes authorizing discretionary dismissal under Section 583.410.  Nonetheless, having considered all of the foregoing factors, the Court declines to exercise its discretion to dismiss Powermax from AVI’s cross-complaint. 

The initial delay in serving Powermax was attributable to AVI’s prior counsel and was also complicated to some extent by Powermax being physically located in China, which mandated service through the relatively more time-consuming Hague process.  AVI’s prior counsel was less than diligent in pursuing service on Powermax, but upon appointment of AVI’s current successor counsel, actions were successfully undertaken in short order to effectuate service under Hague.  The interests of justice are not best served by a dismissal for prior counsel’s delay in serving Powermax.  Further, during a substantial portion of the time at issue in this motion, the Court was operating under COVID-19 emergency rules, which would have almost certainly resulted in a lengthy delay of the trial even had Powermax been timely served earlier in the case.  Finally, the Court does not find Powermax has made any affirmative showing of actual prejudice.

The interests of justice are best served by having the present matter heard on its merits in accordance with our Legislature’s dictates in Section 583.130.  Accordingly, Powermax’s motion is denied.


CU20-084577             Messenger et al. v. Forest River et al.

Before the Court is Defendants’ motion for a directed verdict relating to Plaintiffs’ express warranty claim.  Defendants argue that the trial evidence does not support a finding that Forest River breached its express warranty because Plaintiffs failed to show that “(1) the RV had a defect covered under Forest River's Limited Warranty; (2) that the RV was presented to Forest River or its authorized repair facility in this state for repairs; and (3) Forest River or its authorized repair facility failed to repair the RV to conform to warranty within a reasonable number of attempts.”  Def. Mot., 2: 5-9.  Plaintiffs argue that they presented substantial evidence for a jury to find a defect covered by Forest River’s written warranty and of DeMartini RV Sales’ (“DeMartini”) failure to repair the RV to conform to the warranty within a reasonable number of attempts.  Pl. Opp., 3:1-2, 4:10-11.  Also before the Court is Defendants’ deferred motion for nonsuit timely made and opposed on substantially the same grounds.  Plaintiffs have the better argument with respect to both motions.

[T]he power of the court to direct a verdict is absolutely the same as the power of the court to grant a nonsuit. A motion for a directed verdict is in the nature of a demurrer to the evidence, and is governed by practically the same rules, and concedes as true the evidence on behalf of the adverse party, with all fair and reasonable inferences to be deduced therefrom. Brassinga v. City of Mountain View (1998) 66 Cal.App.4th 195, 210.  A defendant is entitled to a nonsuit [or directed verdict] if the trial court determines that, as a matter of law, the evidence presented by plaintiff is insufficient to permit a jury to find in his favor.  In determining whether plaintiff's evidence is sufficient, the court may not weigh the evidence or consider the credibility of witnesses. Instead, the evidence most favorable to plaintiff must be accepted as true and conflicting evidence must be disregarded.... * * *  Colbaugh v. Hartline (1994) 29 Cal.App.4th 1516, 1521.

Baker v. American Horticulture Supply, Inc. (2010) 186 Cal.App.4th 1059, 1072.

            The Court has reviewed the relevant trial evidence.[1]  As a matter of law, the evidence presented by Plaintiffs (including the testimony of Plaintiffs and documentary evidence related to service visits) was sufficient to permit a jury to find in their favor in connection with all of the challenged issues.  In particular, there was sufficient evidence for a jury to conclude that (1) the RV had a defect covered under Forest River's Limited Warranty, namely a defect in connection with workmanship as to the electrical system; (2) the RV was presented to DeMartini in this county, the authorized repair facility of Forest River for repairs; and (3) Forest River or DeMartini failed to repair the RV to conform to warranty within a reasonable number of attempts.  As to the last point, there was testimony from plaintiff Ronald Messenger that he took the RV to DeMartini on two or perhaps three other occasions other than the two documented service visits in June/July 2018 and September-November 2018.  Ronald Messenger also testified, in substance, that the electrical issues persisted after the last documented service visit.  His wife, Claudia Messenger, offered corroborative testimony.  In determining these motions, this Court cannot weigh this evidence or assess Plaintiffs’ credibility.

            The motions are denied.


[1] The Court utilized its notes and independent recollection of the testimony.  An official transcript was not submitted in connection with these motions.


Moving Party’s attorney is to submit a formal order that sets out verbatim the tentative ruling herein and complies with California Rule of Court 3.1312 and is thereafter to prepare, file and serve notice of the order.

Probate & Conservatorship Tentative Rulings

March 24, 2023   9:00 am   Dept. 6

If a tentative ruling is not issued below for a matter which you believe should be on calendar, please contact OA@nccourt.net.

 

1.      P20-16660      In the Matter of LANCE L. WEBB

The biennial review hearing is continued on the Court’s own motion to April 14, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., in Department 6, to be heard concurrently with the upcoming accounting. The Court is in receipt of the biennial report from the Court Investigator (“CI”) for this review period.  The Conservatee appears to object to the continuation of the previously granted medical powers for treatment of major neurocognitive disorder (“dementia powers”).  Pursuant to Probate Code section 2356.5, the Court must appoint counsel for the Conservatee who must conduct an investigation and thereafter file a petition or report as may be deemed necessary.  (See id. at subd. (g).)

Dewey Harpainter is hereby appointed counsel for the Conservatee. The clerk is directed to provide Mr. Harpainter with a copy of the Court Investigator’s most recent report and any other documents from the Court’s file necessary for him to carry out his functions under Section 2356.5.  The Clerk shall also notice him of the continued hearing date.  No appearances are required.


2.      P21-16866      In the Matter of WILHELM DISSELHOFF

The Court is in receipt of the biennial report from the Court Investigator for this review period.  The conservatorship is continued in its present form and all prior orders remain in effect. The Court sets a biennial status review hearing for March 21, 2025, at 9:00 a.m., in Department 6. 

The Conservator’s last accounting was approved on or about March 26, 2021, and the new biennial accounting is due.  Conservator has not yet filed her current accounting petition.  A status hearing is set on the same for May 12, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., in Department 6.  Conservator shall timely file her accounting petition before the continued hearing date.  The Court will defer on the assessment or waiver of the court investigation fee in connection with the biennial review until such time as the Court rules on the forthcoming accounting petition.  No appearances are required.


3.      P21-16893      In the Matter of THE CHOATE 2007 LIVING TRUST

This matter is before the Court on the trustee’s third and final accounting.  The hearing is continued on the Court’s own motion to April 21, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., in Department 6.  The present petition is filed pursuant to Probate Code section 17200(b)(5), which concerns the “[s]ettling of accounts and passing upon the acts of the trustee ….”  Such petitions require thirty (30) days’ notice to all parties.  (Probate Code § 17203(a).  Here, the parties were noticed on March 7, 2023, which would provide only approximately seventeen (17) days’ notice.  No other procedural defects are noted.  Petitioner is directed to notice the required parties of the continued hearing date.  No appearances are required.


4.      P21-16907      In the Matter of SUSAN E. WALIMA

Appearances are required by counsel for all parties.  This matter is before the Court on the status of the first accounting.  More than one year has elapsed since the permanent conservator of the estate was appointed and a first accounting has not yet been filed.  (See Probate Code § 2620(a) [first accounting is due one year from the time of appointment].)   Conservator shall provide a status report regarding the first accounting and a time estimate as to when that will be filed.


5.      P21-16950      In the Matter of JESSICA ROSE

This matter is on for a petition for final distribution, report, waiver of accounting, and allowance of statutory fees.  The hearing on this matter is continued on the Court’s own motion to April 14, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., in Department 6.  Petitioner’s notice of hearing does not contain a proof of service showing timely service on and notice to decedent’s daughter, Ms. Heeshen.  Ms. Heeshen has waived an accounting in this matter, but the waiver filed with the Court does not include a waiver of the petition for final distribution.  Petitioner shall timely notice decedent’s daughter of the continued hearing date.  No other defects are noted. Petitioner has not yet submitted a proposed order.  No appearances are required.


6.      P21-16975      In the Matter of ELLIOTT ROBERT HASTINGS

This matter is before the Court on a first annual review of the limited conservatorship of the person only.  The Court not yet received a report from either the Court Investigator or Alta Regional (“Alta”).  The hearing is continued on the Court’s own motion to May 12, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., in Department 6.  The Clerk shall notify both the Court Investigator and Alta of the continued hearing date.   No appearances are required.


7.      P22-17036      In the Matter of ROBERT M. GRINNELL

Appearances are required by the Conservatee, Conservatee’s counsel, and proposed Conservator.  This matter is again before the Court on the proposed Conservator’s petition for permanent conservatorship.  As was noted in previous tentative rulings, the Court cannot proceed in the absence of the Conservatee.  The Court requests a status update from Conservatee’s counsel and intends to grant the amended petition unless there is an objection.  Conservator will need to submit updated letters and orders for the Court’s review. No orders are sought for powers under Probate Code section 2351-2358 (including medical powers) and none will be granted in connection with this amended petition.


8.      PR0000144     In Re White, James David

Appearances are required by counsel for all parties.  This matter is before the Court on Petitioner/Beneficiary’s petition for breach of trust, cancellation of deed, removal of co-trustees, and for appointment of successor trustee for special purpose.  Respondent Trustee filed her objection on December 6, 2022.  The Court is also in receipt of Petitioner’s supplemental briefing filed February 22, 2023, and Respondent’s reply thereto, which was filed on March 17, 2023.  The Court intends to set this matter for an evidentiary hearing and the parties are to meet and confer on an agreeable date for the same.


9.      PR0000205     In Re The 1993 Joseph B. and Julia A. Mello Revocable Trust

This matter is before the Court on a petition for approval of the first and second accountings, as well as for a Probate Code section 850 petition for return of an over-distribution made to a beneficiary.  The first and second accountings are approved as prayed.  Petitioner shall submit a proposed order within seven (7) days of this Court’s ruling becoming final as to the accountings only.

As to the Section 850 component of the petition regarding over-distribution, the Trustee has filed a notice of pending settlement and requests that matter be continued approximately forty-five (45) days for finalization of the same.  The hearing will be continued at the Trustee’s request to May 12, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., in Department 6.  No appearances are required.


10.  PR0000227     In the Matter of Shari Lavola Dean

This matter is before the Court on a petition to confirm succession of real property pursuant to Probate Code sections 13150 et seq.  The original Petitioner, Heather Bowler (“Bowler”), is not the successor of the decedent to an interest to a particular piece of real property.  (See Probate Code § 13151 [petition may be brought by “the successor of the decedent to an interest in a particular item of property that is real property”].)  Bowler instead brought the original petition on behalf of the named executor and beneficiary of the decedent’s will, Linda Valdes (“Valdes”), and contends she is authorized to do so by virtue of Valdes’ consent, which is purportedly attached to the petition but is not acknowledged.  Valdes has not assigned her interest in the estate to Bowler.  Argument was heard on March 10, 2023, and the matter was continued to the present date. 

Subsequent to the last hearing, Valdes has now directly filed her own supplemental petition to determine succession as well as additional briefing; attached to the additional briefing is a power of attorney for Bowler.  The supplemental petition directly filed by Valdes is granted as prayed.  Petitioner has already submitted a proposed order.  The original petition is denied as moot.  No appearances are required.

Probate & Conservatorship Tentative Rulings

March 27, 2023   1:30 p.m.   Dept. A

  1. P01-13442      In the Matter of Anthony M. Pagano

This matter is before the Court for a biennial review of the conservatorship of the person as well as for Conservator’s petition for approval of the eleventh account.  As to the review of the conservatorship of the person, the Court is in receipt of the biennial report from the Court Investigator for this review period.  The conservatorship is continued in its present form and all prior orders remain in effect. The Court sets a biennial status review hearing for February 24, 2025, at 1:30 p.m., in Department A.  Conservator shall pay the Court Investigator’s fee of $500.00 forthwith.

As to the eleventh accounting, it is approved as prayed.  Conservator does not seek any compensation in connection with her services as conservator and has already submitted a proposed order.  The hearing on the twelfth accounting shall be heard concurrently with the biennial review set for February 24, 2025.  No appearances are required.

 

  1. PR0000101     In Re Alvarez, Leroy Joseph

Appearances are required by the parties or their respective counsel.  This matter is before the Court on proposed Conservatee’s motion to quash a subpoena issued by Petitioner, Ms. Lee, for his financial records from Bank of America.  For the reasons discussed herein, the motion to quash is denied.  The Court will, however, issue a protective order limiting the use, release, viewing, and disclosure of any of the obtained records to the present matter and to the parties thereto or their respective counsel.  The parties shall timely meet and confer after the hearing to discuss the language of the proposed protective order.  Conservatee’s counsel shall thereafter, within ten (10) days of this Court’s ruling becoming final, submit the proposed, agreed-upon protective order to the Court for its review.  If the parties are unable to agree on the language of the order, each party shall, within the same timeframe, submit their own proposed order for the Court’s consideration.

The parties’ requests for monetary sanctions pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 1987.2 are denied.  The Court notes that an award of such sanctions is discretionary and the Court does not find 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.

 

            Discussion

Code of Civil Procedure section 1987.1 is the primary statute for the Court’s consideration of the present matter.  It provides most simply that a party may make a motion to quash a subpoena and that the Court has effectively plenary authority to fashion relief, including any of the following: quashing the subpoena in its entirety, modifying it, directing compliance upon terms and conditions fashioned by the court (including protective orders).  (Id.)  The Court may also “make any other order as may be appropriate to protect the person from unreasonable or oppressive demands, including unreasonable violations of the right of privacy of the person.”  (Id.)  The statute does not discuss in any great detail the bases on which it may make its determinations. 

“[W]hen a discovery request seeks information implicating the constitutional right of privacy, to order discovery simply upon a showing that the … test for relevance has been met is an abuse of discretion.”  (Williams v. Superior Court (2017) 3 Cal.5th 531, 556.)  The Court must instead, in addition to assessing relevancy, also engage in a balancing test wherein it considers the individual’s privacy interest against the stated need for the records.  (Lantz v. Superior Court (1994) 28 Cal.App.4th 1839, 1857, disapproved of on other grounds in Williams, supra, 3 Cal.5th 531.)  Where the threatened invasion of privacy is “extremely grave,” it may be appropriate for a court to conclude that “a compelling countervailing interest and an absence of alternatives will suffice to justify the intrusion ….”  (Williams, supra, 3 Cal.5th at 557.)  It is, however, not always true that a party seeking discovery of private information must always establish a compelling need or interest.  (Id.) 

“The party asserting a privacy right must establish a legally protected privacy interest, an objectively reasonable expectation of privacy given the circumstances, and a threatened intrusion that is serious.”  (Id. at 552.)  The party seeking the information may then “raise in response whatever legitimate and important countervailing interests disclosure serves, while the party seeking protection may identify feasible alternatives that serve the same interests or protective measures that would diminish the loss of privacy.”  (Id.)  The trial court then must balance the competing considerations in rendering its ruling.  (Id.; see also Hill v. National Collegiate Athletic Assn. (1994) 7 Cal.4th 1, 35-40.)

The subpoena makes the following request:

Any and all records from January 2018 to present regarding any and all accounts held in the name of Leroy Joseph Alvarez, Leroy J. Alvarez and Leroy Alvarez, either solely or as Trustee of Leroy J. and Phyllis M. Alvarez Family Trust or the Leroy J. Alvarez Trust including but not limited [to] any and all checking, savings, credit accounts, loans, safe deposit boxes and to include but not be limited to, signature cards, beneficiary designations, correspondence connected to the accounts, bank statements, loan applications, copies of checks, deposit receipts, wire transfers, cash withdrawals, and transfers into and out of the account. (Pruett Declaration in Support of Motion to Quash, Exhibit ‘A’.)

Here, there is little doubt that proposed conservatee has an objectively reasonable expectation of privacy in his private financial affairs, including his safety deposit box(es), bank records, beneficiary designations, loans, etc. as requested in the subpoena.  (See Valley Bank of Nevada v. Superior Court (1975) 15 Cal.3d 652, 656-657 [an individual has a constitutionally protected privacy interest in personal financial information]; see also Moskowitz v. Superior Court (1982) 137 Cal.App.3d 313, 315-316, disapproved of on other grounds in Williams, supra, 3 Cal.5th 531.)  Petitioner does not assert otherwise. 

The primary question for the Court is accordingly whether the countervailing interest, to wit: the determination of whether proposed Conservatee is a vulnerable individual in need of a conservatorship, outweighs his right to privacy.  The Court finds in this particular instance that it does.  Conservatee’s bank records are relevant, including those of the related trust, insofar as they could at least conceivably reveal a pattern of fraud, financial abuse, or else evidence that the proposed Conservatee is substantially unable to resist undue influence.  Conversely, they may reveal the opposite, but these are questions directly relevant to the Court’s consideration of the ultimate question of whether a conservatorship of the estate is warranted.  (See Probate Code § 1801(b).) 

In considering the above-recognized privacy interests and balancing such interests against Petitioner’s need for the information in the present case, the Court finds that the interest in disclosure of the documents, subject to an appropriately-fashioned protective order limiting their use and disclosure, outweighs the Conservatee’s privacy interests.

 

  1. PR0000159     In Re Brookman, Audrey Joy Lewis

Appearances are required by all parties or their respective counsel.  This matter is before the Court on a petition for appointment of a guardian of the estate.  At the hearing on March 10, 2023, the Court continued the matter to the present date with the expectation that Petitioner would be filing an amended petition.  The Court has not yet received the amended petition and requires a brief status update from counsel as to when the same will be filed as well as a proposed future court date.

 

  1. PR0000213     In the Matter of the Brown Donner Lake Irrevocable Grantor Trust

Trustee’s petition to confirm trust assets is granted as prayed.  Trustee is directed to submit a conforming order to the Court within seven (7) days of the Court’s order.  No appearances are required.

 

  1. PR0000236     In re the Matter of Katherine Walsh

This matter is before the Court on a petition for probate of will and for letters testamentary.  This is an ancillary administration.  Petitioner is the duly-appointed executor of the estate in Scott County, Iowa.  The Court is favorably inclined to grant the petition as prayed, but notes it is missing proof of publication.  The hearing is continued on the Court’s own motion to April 24, 2023, at 1:30 p.m., in Department ‘A’.  If Petitioner is already in possession of proof of publication, it may submit the same at or prior to the hearing on March 27, 2023.  Otherwise, no appearances are required.

 

  1. TP21-7890      In the Matter of Christine Lipnosky

The Court is in receipt of the biennial report from the Court Investigator for this review period.  The conservatorship is continued in its present form and all prior orders remain in effect. The Court sets a biennial status review hearing for March 24, 2025, at 1:30 p.m., in Department A.  The Court Investigator has concluded that Conservatee has sufficient assets and the court investigation fee of $500.00 is to be paid forthwith.  No appearances are required.
