7 Memorandum of Points and Authorities Definitions set forth in the foregoing Notice of Motion and Motion are incorporated herein. Unlabeled section numbers herein refer to the Code of Civil Procedure. 1. Introduction This action by PLAINTIFFS is utterly without merit. As supported by ATTORNEY DECLARATION, It is the fourth action PLAINTIFFS have taken against HINDS on the same subject matter they have lost three times and have now come back a fourth time with the very same meritless allegations. As supported by ATTORNEY DECLARATION, PLAINTIFFS first attempt was an administrative action they filed with Los Angeles Housing Department (hereinafter LAHD ), case number [redacted]. They lost. LAHD determined that HINDS had lawfully evicted them. Exhibit H attached hereto sets forth a true and correct copy of an , sent internally within LAHD, indicating that the said case was closed in favor of HINDS. As supported by ATTORNEY DECLARATION, PLAINTIFFS second attempt was another administrative action they filed with LAHD, case number [redacted]. They lost again. LAHD again determined that HINDS had lawfully evicted them. Exhibit I attached hereto sets forth a true and correct copy of an , sent internally within LAHD, indicating that the said case was closed in favor of HINDS. As supported by ATTORNEY DECLARATION, PLAINTIFFS third attempt was a lawsuit filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, case number [redacted]. They lost yet again. The court dismissed the action. Exhibit J attached hereto sets forth a true and correct copy of the minute order issued on April, 00 granting HINDS s motion to quash service of the summons and dismiss the action. Exhibit K attached hereto sets forth a true and correct copy of the minute order issued on May, 00 denying PLAINTIFFS motion for reconsideration thereof.

8 Becoming increasingly vexatious, the PLAINTIFFS then filed this meritless action based on the very same set of facts. HINDS is entitled to due process, which includes the right to propound discovery, including the INTERROGATORIES, to obtain evidence from PLAINTIFFS in her defense. However, as supported by ATTORNEY DECLARATION 1 and, when served with the INTERROGATORIES and other discovery by HINDS, HAAS failed to respond after actually receiving it, and SIMONS refused to receive it, much less respond (the discovery sent via Certified Mail to SIMONS was returned unclaimed by the Postal Service). Nor did they respond to the M/C LETTER. This conduct is totally unbecoming of any serious plaintiff particularly in what is now their fourth round of attack on HINDS and it proves that the PLAINTIFFS know very well their case has no merit. By now it is transparent that the PLAINTIFFS sole purpose is harassment, including forcing HINDS to bring this motion to compel, thereby incurring attorney fees. And, while they have not succeeded in obtaining any relief from HINDS, they have indeed succeeded at harassing her. As supported by ATTORNEY DECLARATION, the PLAINTIFFS vexatious course of conduct has caused substantial emotional distress to HINDS, and quite reasonably so. As supported by ATTORNEY DECLARATION, the INTERROGATORIES are targeted to obtain admissible evidence, and/or to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence, that is relevant to HINDS S defense against this action.. The INTERROGATORIES Were Lawfully Propounded. After being served with process, a defendant in a civil action may propound discovery at any time without leave of court see as to interrogatories. In a limited civil action, discovery must comply with the Grabbag Rule of set forth in (a), which caps the total number of interrogatories, plus production demands, plus requests for admissions, at items per answering party. As supported by Exhibits A through D and ATTORNEY DECLARATION, SIMONS and HAAS were each served

9 with form interrogatories, special interrogatories, production demands, and no requests for admissions totaling items for SIMONS and items for HAAS.. PLAINTIFFS have Failed to Serve a Timely Response to the INTERROGATORIES. As supported by ATTORNEY DECLARATION, the INTERROGATORIES were served on PLAINTIFFS by mail on December, 00. The time for PLAINTIFFS to respond was therefore within days 0 days, plus days due to the mailing within California. Within 0 days after service of interrogatories, the party to whom the interrogatories are propounded shall serve the original of the response to them on the propounding party 00.0(a). In case of service by mail,... any... duty to... make any response within any period... after the service of the document, which time period... is prescribed by statute..., shall be extended five calendar days, upon service by mail,... 1(a). Section 1 applies to any method of discovery The th day after December, 00 was January 1, 00 which was the last day for PLAINTIFFS to timely respond. As supported by ATTORNEY DECLARATION 1, the M/C LETTER was served on PLAINTIFFS by mail on January 1, 00. This was done as a courtesy to them no meet and confer letter is required for a motion to compel responses to interrogatories when there has been no response. [M]eet-and-confer requirement of former Cal. Rules of Court, rule.1 (now embodied in 00.00, subd. (b)) did not apply when propounding party sought order compelling responses to interrogatories and sanctions for responding party's failure to respond within the statutorily permitted time Sinaiko Healthcare Consulting, Inc. v. Pacific Healthcare Consultants Cal.App.th As supported by ATTORNEY DECLARATION, PLAINTIFFS have neither served any response to the INTERROGATORIES, nor contacted HINDS to meet and

10 confer, nor had any counsel representing them contact HINDS, nor filed any motion for a protective order. Therefore, PLAINTIFFS have failed to timely respond to the INTERROGATORIES.. PLAINTIFFS have Waived Their Rights to Object or to Seek a Protective Order. If a party to whom interrogatories are directed fails to serve a timely response, the following rules apply: (a) The party to whom the interrogatories are directed waives... any objection to the interrogatories, , emphasis added. The party also waives the right to seek a protective order. When interrogatories have been propounded, the responding party... may promptly move for a protective order (a), emphasis added. If a protective order is to be obtained, relief must be sought: [ ] Promptly...; and [ ] Before expiration of the 0 day period within which to respond to the interrogatories... California Practice Guide Civil Procedure before Trial (00) The Rutter Group :1, italics in original. Thus, by failing to serve a timely response, PLAINTIFFS have waived their rights to object or to seek a protective order.. The Court Has Authority Grant the Motion and Compel PLAINTIFFS to Respond to the INTERROGATORIES provides, If a party to whom interrogatories are directed fails to serve a timely response... (b) The party propounding the interrogatories may move for an order compelling response to the interrogatories. Since the INTERROGATORIES have been lawfully propounded and PLAINTIFFS have not responded, the Court has the authority to grant the Motion and compel them to respond. / / / / / / / / / / / /

11 If the Motion is Granted, the Court Must Order PLAINTIFFS to Pay HINDS Her Expenses and Attorney Fees Incurred in Making the Motion, Even If PLAINTIFFS Serve Responses. 00.0(c) provides, The court shall impose a monetary sanction... against any party,... who unsuccessfully... opposes a motion to compel a response to interrogatories... (Emphasis added.) 0.0 provides, Misuses of the discovery process include... (d) Failing to respond... to an authorized method of discovery. 0.00(a) provides for a monetary sanction ordering that one engaging in the misuse of the discovery process... pay the reasonable expenses... incurred by anyone as a result of that conduct. (Emphasis added.) The court may award sanctions... even though no opposition to the motion was filed,... or the requested discovery was provided... after the motion was filed. California Rules of Court rule.0(a). As supported by ATTORNEY DECLARATION, HINDS S reasonable costs in making the motion are $0, and her reasonable attorney fees for counsel to represent him at the hearing hereon are $1,0. Therefore, if the motion is granted, the Court must order PLAINTIFFS to pay HINDS her costs of $0 and attorney fees of $1,0 incurred in making the motion, even if they serve responses.. Conclusion. For the foregoing reasons, the Court should GRANT the motion. Respectfully submitted, 1 Dated: Law Office of [redacted] Attorneys for Defendant Mary Hinds
