United States District Court, S.D. Illinois
November 3, 2005.
WILKE WINDOW & DOOR COMPANY, INC., Plaintiff,
PEABODY COAL COMPANY, Defendant.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: CLIFFORD PROUD, Magistrate Judge
Before the Court is plaintiff's Motion to Compel. (Doc. 19).
Plaintiff served discovery requests on defendant on September
13, 2005. Defendant has not responded to those requests. The
letters between counsel that are attached to the motion suggest
that defendant's attorney took the position that Defendant did
not have to answer the discovery requests because they were
"late." Presumably this means that they were not served by the
date set in the scheduling order for service of initial written
discovery. However, Defendant apparently did not serve objections
raising that point.
Objections not stated within thirty days are waived. See,
Upon consideration and for good cause shown, plaintiff's Motion
to Compel (Doc. 19) is GRANTED. Defendant Peabody Coal Company
is ordered to answer plaintiff's interrogatories and to produce
the documents requested by plaintiff on or before November 14,
IT IS SO ORDERED.
