Discovery: Requests for Admission

King v. State Fund [5/4/98] 1998 MTWCC 36 Although the M.R.Civ.P. provide that a request for admission is deemed admitted if not denied in thirty days, the WCC rules do not contain such a provision. Rather, the WCC rules treat a request for admission as a form of interrogatory, meaning that the WCC rules for compelling answers to interrogatories, and requesting sanctions where appropriate, govern the issue of remedy for respondent's late answers to a request to admit.
