RE: John Doe v. John Poe

Dear ____:

On __________________, I served upon you, on behalf of your clients,
_____________with form interrogatories, special interrogatories, requests for Production
of documents and requests for admission. To date no responses have been received.

I have granted you several extensions, the most recent being until ________________.I
have still not received any responses. As you are more than 30 days late on my most
previous extension I must insist that your client’s provide me with their verified
responses, without objections.

Be advised that Code of Civil Procedure § 2023.010(d) states that failing to respond to an
authorized method of discovery is an abuse of the discovery process. Further, as your
client’s have failed to serve timely responses they have waived any right to objections,
pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure § 2030.290 for the form and special interrogatories,
and Code of Civil Procedure § 2031.300 for the requests for production of documents,
and Code of Civil Procedure § 2033.280 for the requests for admission.

Accordingly, I request that your clients submit verified responses to my form and special
interrogatories, requests for production of documents, and requests for admission,
without objections, within 10 days from the date of this letter.

It is my sincere intention to settle this matter amicably without the need for judicial
intervention. However, as I am entitled to your client’s verified discovery responses in
the event I do not receive your client’s verified responses, without objections, within 10
days from the date of this letter I will have no choice but to file motions to compel with
the Court and ask for attorneys fees and sanctions for your client’s failure to comply.

Very truly yours,
