Van v. Language Line Services, Inc., 041459

In an employment appeal brought by plaintiff challenging the trial court's order sanctioning her and finding her in contempt for disobeying a court order by refusing to attend a deposition noticed by defendant and engaging in other discovery violations related to her deposition, the orders of contempt and sanctions are reversed where there was no prior court order which plaintiff disobeyed and no determination as to whether plaintiff had a substantial justification for not attending her deposition or whether she had a valid objection to the various deposition notices served by defendant.
