UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SAN JOSE DIVISION
May 14, 2013
ARMANDO RODRIGUEZ, PLAINTIFF,
BARRITA, INC., ET AL, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Paul S. Grewal United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER DENYING REQUEST FOR ATTORNEYS' FEES (Re: Docket No. 168, 170)
As part of his two motions to compel, Plaintiff Armando Rodriguez ("Rodriguez") seeks attorneys' fees from Defendants Barrita, Inc., et al ("Barrita"). The court ruled on the underlying motions on the record and as reflected in the minute order from the hearing. The court briefly addresses here the sanctions request. Given the late timing of Rodriguez's request for the insurance documents and his numerous requests for admission, interrogatories, and requests for production for the limited period of discovery, the court finds Barrita was substantially justified in opposing the motions.*fn1 The sanctions request is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
