Case Blurb; Easton Sports; Dismissal an extreme sanction

Posted by rjbiii on September 4, 2007

Justice requires that any sanction imposed be proportionate to the circumstances. Dismissal of a claim or defense is an extreme sanction and should be imposed only in extreme situations where there is evidence of willfulness, bad faith, or substantial fault by a non-complying party. Easton Sports, Inc. v. Warrior Lacrosse, Inc., 2006 WL 2811261 (E.D. Mich. 2006).
