Heath v. Engle , 123 P.3d 1 (2005)

Heath v. Engle


The Supreme Court held that Engle's failure to timely answer the requests for admissions without a reasonable excuse, was sufficient to admit each request and find for Heath on summary judgment. Engle responded to the requests only after Heath filed for summary judgment in the case, weeks after the responses were due, and without any communication with the Plaintiff. Because Engle did not present any reasonable excuse for her grossly delayed answers, the trial court properly deemed them all admitted under the Oklahoma Rules of Civil Procedure.
