Plaintiff's case dismissed for failing to timely file answers to Interrogatories
In O'Kopski v. Fantuzzi, et al., the Court defined the minimum boundaries of what must be shown to dismiss a plaintiff's case for failing to provide discovery. The Plaintiff failed to file answers to Interrogatories and Requests to Produce for several months. The Defendants then filed a Motion to Compel and secured an order requiring that answers be filed within 14 days. The Plaintiff complied--well, sort of-- by filing partially responsive answers that were not signed under oath. The trial judge dismissed her claim and the dismissal was upheld on appeal.
