I filed a medical malpractice complaint in 2008. Requests for rog's and docs was requested and completed on both sides. My case was dismissed in 2/2011 by my attorney at the time and re-filed in 2/2012 by another attorney who has since quit. After my case was re-filed, defense again requested rog's and doc's. I was supposed submit by last May I think... I didn't comply because I've been dealing with many health issues brought on by the botched surgery (I didn't consent to) I'm suing about. I only learned about the 'Motion to Compel' last night via the Internet. I just happened to look my case up on-line.. I did't receive anything via mail. 1) Do I need to appear on the 23rd? 2) If so, what do I need to have me with, if anything? Thank you for any advice on thisIf I comply and submit the requested information now, will I still need to appear next Wednesday for the 'Motion to Compel' and be prepared to 'explain' the delay? I already signed all medical release forms after my case was re-filed so they have all the needed medical/disability information. And, they have all other pertinent info related to my case because because I answered rog's and produced docs the first time my complaint was filed. It's not as if I've been holding back on info they need and don't have. They have it.
