Chadasama v. Mazda Motor Corp.
Citation:123 F.3d 1353 (11th Cir. 1997)
Plaintiffs were injured in an automobile accident. They sued Defendant, an automobile manufacturer, asserting claims for product liability, negligence and fraud, in connection with alleged defects in their automobile that led to their injuries. The parties engaged in discovery for a period of over two years. The Plaintiffs filed a motion to compel discovery, for which the court held a hearing. The resolution of the discovery disputes included a district order granting sanctions in Plaintiffs’ favor. The sanctions award struck Defendant’s answer and affirmative defenses, directed the clerk to enter a default judgment, awarded Plaintiffs expenses and attorneys fees, and vacated a previously entered protective order. The Court of Appeals reviewed the district court’s opinion and orders related to discovery in this case, specifically the orders compelling discovery and ordering sanctions.
