Court upholds summary disposition after injury victim is late in filing answers to requests to admit
Gwendolyn Brooks-Wiley sued the Frankenmuth Mutual Insurance Company for PIP benefits after a motor vehicle collision. The insurer filed Requests to Admit which the injured woman's attorneys did not timely answer. The insurer then sought a ruling that the requests were "deemed admitted" and that it should be summarily dismissed from the action. The trial judge agreed and dismissed the case; on appeal, the dismissal was upheld.
