I am in pro per and won a motion to deem admitted RFAs in my civil unlimited case. Opp. counsel then filed for reconsideration and was denied. Now he's filed a Writ with the Appellate Court and his pleadings do not specify the standard of review anywhere in any of the documents.
My initial research indicates that it is likely an abuse of discretion standard, but I remain uncertain and a call to the court produced nothing of value in determining this. Can anyone tell me what the standard normally is, or how it is that I can tell?
So far my research has turned up both de novo and abuse of discretion. Any assistance or statutes or case citings or practice manual info would be very helpful so I can properly frame my response to the correct standard. Thank you.
