Protective order regarding requests for admission in California

A protective order regarding requests for admission in California is the topic of this blog post. A motion for a protective order for requests for admission is filed pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 2033.080. The motion for a protective order should be served and filed with the Court before the date the responses to the requests for admission are due and must contain a meet and confer declaration under Code of Civil Procedure section 2016.040.

One common reason for requesting a protective order includes situations where the opposing party has propounded more than 35 requests for admission that do not relate to the genuineness of documents without attaching an executed declaration for additional discovery as required by Code of Civil Procedure section 2033.050.

Other possible reasons would be where the requests for admission are clearly not related to any conceivable triable issues in that particular case, and constitute an unwarranted annoyance on the moving party.

The burden of showing good cause is generally on the party requesting a protective order. However that is not true where the responding party seeks a protective order on the ground the number of request for admission is excessive, the burden is on the propounding party to justify the number served pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure § 2033.040(b)
