No. Prior to filing the Complaint for PI due to a slip & Fall, I asked them for a copy of the Survelance Film in the lobby of the Theater. They responded with 1 Potograph of the plaintiff (me) slipping and falling. Sent that to an expert and he indicated that it appeared that the Photo had been monkeyed with (after I told him what was actually in the lobby) and it seemed to him a little strange. Now at this stage I Sent a Notice to Produce documents and the Film. Last week. They have not said anything. I called and asked if they had received it... and they have been as quite as a church mouse.... said nothing. THE TIME TO RESPOND HAS NOT ARRIVED. HOWEVER, BECAUSE I AM IN PRO PER ... I want to remind them - that THERE IS A DUTY TO PRESERVE EVIDENCE. I know - that the PHOTO THEY SENT - HAS to be totally inconsistant with the actual film.
Thank you Counselor - for the time and energy invested in the appropiate and compreshensive expression of the insightful letter. Thank you.
