Save Time, Money & Angst -- MEET and CONFER

more+
less-

The purpose of the “meet and confer” requirements set forth in C.C.P. §§ 25.450(b)(2)), 2025.480, 2030.300(b), 2031.310(b), 2032.250 and 2033.290 was for the lawyers to revisit their position, in good faith discuss a resolution and avoid unnecessary discovery motions.

Despite a party's threat that they will seek sanctions, no court is going to award sanctions if you don't meet and confer in good faith and in fact will sanction you if you don't. See C.C.P. §2033.290.
