What is a motion to suppress?

“[O]n a seasonable motion to suppress the deposition, accompanied by a meet and confer declaration under Section 2016.040, the court may determine that the reasons given for the failure or refusal to approve the transcript require rejection of the deposition in whole or in part.” (Code Civ. Proc., § 2025.520.)

Rule 5-220 states that an attorney shall not suppress evidence that he or his client has a legal obligation to produce. Lawyers are subject to discipline for participating in the suppression or destruction of evidence. (Bus. & Prof. Code §§ 6106, 6077; Rules Prof. Conduct, rule 5-220 (member shall not suppress evidence member has legal obligation to reveal or produce).)

The court has the inherent power to “provide orderly conduct of proceedings before it, or its officers” and to “amend and control its process and orders so as to make them conform to law and justice.” (Id., § 128.)

“Our discovery statutes are designed to ascertain the truth, not suppress it.” (Advanced Modular Sputtering, Inc. v. Super. Ct. (Mishin) (2005) 132 Cal.App.4th 826, 837.) “Any doubt about discovery is to be resolved in favor of disclosure.” (Id.; see also Perlan Therapeutics, Inc. v. Super. Ct. (Nexbio, Inc.) (2009) 178 Cal.App.4th 1333, 1346-1347, citing and discussing Advanced Modular, supra, 132 Cal.App.4th 835-837.)
