Okay

The order would be controlling so if a judge states that no discovery is to take place until a CMC that would be applicable; but it is always a good idea to address any discovery by filing a protective motion (citing the order) in order to avoid possible sanctions for not responding to discovery. CCP 2023.010 allows for sanctions for failing to respond; they would not likely be issued if the discovery is against a court order but since judges may make mistakes seeking a protective order is the most prudent.

CCP 2023.030 allows for sanctions for the misuse of discovery - please see:

Does a "motion for discovery" have to be filed with the court or only served on plaintiff before time to respond begins being calculated?

A motion needs to be filed; but a party can engage in discovery without filing a motion; for example, the party wishing to send discovery requests would simply serve it on the person they wish to get the information from;

a motion needs to be filed (not just discovery served on party) before the time to respond begins being calculated (& sanctions imposed after)?

A discovery motion is when a party objects to discovery, or the requesting party is filing a motion to compel discovery.

If the judge issues an order that such a motion cannot be filed unless there is a meet and confer meeting between the parties, and a conference with the judge, that would be the required step.

If a party files a motion, then the other party can seek sanctions for violation of a court order.

If the order states no discovery is to take place until a CMC then there would first need to be a CMC, then discovery could be served.

Time to respond begins when the party is served.
