United States District Court, E.D. North Carolina, Western Division
March 6, 2014
RELIASTAR LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY, Plaintiff,
JOHN B. LASCHKEWITSCH, Defendant.
TERRENCE W. BOYLE, District Judge.
This matter is before the Court on defendant's "motion regarding sufficiency of plaintiffs answers and objections" [DE 65] and defendant's motion for discovery sanctions [DE 71]. In each instance plaintiff provided lengthy opposition memoranda which clearly demonstrate the frivolity and misleading nature of defendant's motions. Defendant did not respond to either memorandum by filing a reply memorandum, leaving plaintiffs statements unchallenged.
Plaintiff has demonstrated that it properly responded to defendant's requests for admissions. Accordingly defendant's first motion [DE 65] is DENIED.
Plaintiff has demonstrated that there is no merit in defendant's motion for discovery sanctions. Indeed, it is clear that defendant has attempted to mislead the court in his supporting memorandum to the motion. As there is no merit to the motion, it is DENIED.
