Smith v. Davidson et al
ORDER DENYING Plaintiff's 74 Motion for Sanctions, Signed by Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen. (MWil)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
District Judge Mark A. Goldsmith
Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen
LYNN M. DAVIDSON, ET AL.,
Before the Court is Plaintiff’s motion for sanctions [Doc. #74], in which he claims that
Defendant Misty Wojnarowicz disobeyed this Court’s January 30, 2014 Order to answer
Plaintiff’s interrogatories regarding the current mailing address of unserved Defendant
Deborah Ellis and other information regarding Ms. Ellis. In my Order [Doc. #71], I
stated, “If they don’t know where Ellis lives, they shall so indicate.”
According to Plaintiff’s motion, Wojnarowicz’ response to his interrogatories was, “I
do not have information responsive to this request.” The Plaintiff may not like this
response, and he may be frustrated that Ms. Wojnarowicz has no information to help him
locate Ms. Ellis, but this is a proper response to both interrogatories.
Accordingly, Plaintiff’s motion for sanctions [Doc. #74] is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: February 24, 2014
