The other side lied in the answers for request for admissions.

This answer was rated:

The other side lied in the answers for request for admissions. They also said very clear questions were unclear and didn't answer them. What can I do now? Can I file a motion to strike their answers because they lied? In the motion do I have to prove they lied with exhibits? Or do I file to compel truthful answers? NC federal

Thank you for your question.

As a litigator, I've run into this issue many times.

On the requests which they refused to answer, you need to file a motion to compel and request a ruling on their objections.

In regard to the untruthful answers, there is no procedure you can follow at this point. You cannot force a party to respond truthfully. However, if a party denied a request for Admission that they should have admitted, and you prove the denial false at the trial, you can collect your expenses in having to prove the truth and request sanctions after it has been proven at the trial.

Please let me know if you need further information.
