Frank contributed his commentary to an article on Law360 exploring attorney success stories and tips in using sanctions motions. Frank said, “I once learned a valuable lesson — from the giving side — regarding the serious effects of noncompliance with the discovery process. I was defending a negligence and personal injury case and had served written discovery. Plaintiff and his attorney failed to respond to my request as required, even following a court order compelling them to do so. I then brought a motion seeking an issue sanction from the court, requesting it order that my client did not owe plaintiff a duty of care, which was granted. With the court’s order eliminating the first element of negligence, plaintiff was forced to dismiss with prejudice his complaint.” Read the full article here (subscription required).
