732014-05-06 MINUTES OF PROCEEDINGS - Motion Hearing held on 5/6/2014 before Magistrate Judge Nancy J. Koppe. Crtrm Administrator: Alana Kamaka; Pla Counsel: Melanie L. Thomas; Def Counsel: Gregory Schulman; Gary Call (for 3rd Party Defendant Turney Development); and Kristopher Zeppenfeld (for 3rd Party Defendant Thor Construction); Court Reporter/FTR #: 3:01:42 - 4:15:28; Time of Hearing: 3:01 - 4:16; Courtroom: 3A; Before the Court are 48 Motion to Compel; 49 Motion for Sanctions re Discovery; 50 Motion to Amend/Correct Complaint; and 58 Motion for Sanctions re Discovery. Motion to Compel #48, is denied as to any incidents that ocurred after the plaintiff's fall. Court finds that the incidents ocurring after the plaintiff's fall are not relevant as stated on record. Interrogatory #20 and Request for Production of Documents #1, the Court will require the defendant to become completely certain as to whether all of the documents that fall within the scope of those discovery requests have been provided and shall so certify as to same. Motion for Sanctions #49 and #58: Regarding Request for Admissions #28 and #29, the Court finds that the plaintiff was seeking the application of the law, however, it was poorly worded. The Court further finds the word "walkway" to be ambiguous. Therefore, the Motion is denied as to those two requests for admissions. However, the Court will allow the plaintiff to serve new request for admission seeking those admissions that have to be worded in a more accurate manner. The defendant will have to answer that admission. The new request for admission will have to be served within 7 days of today's date. The defendant will have to respond within 7 days of the serving of that request for admissions. Regarding Request for Admission Numbers 24-26, the Court finds those were answered by the defendants, they were appropriate at this stage and that defendant certainly had a good faith proper basis to preserve that objection as stated on record. As to Attorneys Fees, the plaintiff sought an award of attorneys fees, however, the Court denied the motion. The defendant withdrew the counter motion for attornye fees; and therefore, the Court denied the motion as moot. After hearing arguments on the Motion for Leave to Amend #50, the Court takes the motion under submission. A Written Order will be issued.
