Civil Practice – Requests for Admission – Service – Summary Judgment – Sanctions (access required)

Faulkerson v Allen. The defendant properly served his answer, request for admissions and counterclaims upon the plaintiffs by sending them in the mail to plaintiffs' last known address. Given the plaintiffs' failure to respond to the requests for admission and counterclaims, the trial court did not err by granting summary judgment in favor of the defendant. Since none of the contentions that the plaintiffs advanced on appeal were well grounded in fact or warranted by existing law or a good faith argument for the extension, modification, or reversal of existing law, imposing sanctions against the plaintiffs is appropriate.
