IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA
United States of America,
Charles M. Prosser, d/b/a Prosser’s
Septic Tank Service,
C/A No.: 1:16-866-JMC-SVH
This matter comes before the court on the motion of the United States of America
(“the Government”) to compel Charles M. Prosser, d/b/a Prosser’s Septic Tank Service
(“Defendant”), to respond to the Government’s First Set of Interrogatories and First Set of
Requests for Production served on Plaintiff on September 23, 2016. [ECF No. 20]. The
motion indicates that the discovery requests were duly served and that full and complete
responses have not been made within the time prescribed by Fed. R. Civ. P. 26. By letter
dated December 1, 2016, counsel for the Government requested responses from Defendant
by December 11, 2016, in order not to interfere with the court’s scheduling order. [ECF
No. 20-2]. Counsel for the Government represents that as of December 23, 2016,
Defendant had not answered or responded to the discovery requests. [ECF No. 20 at 2–3].
In light of the foregoing, the court grants the Government’s motion to compel.
Defendant is directed to provide responses to the discovery requests by January 10, 2017.
Because Defendant failed to timely respond to the discovery, any and all objections are
deemed waived under Fed. R. Civ. P. 33(b)(4).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
December 27, 2016
