Despite having more than seven months to answer discovery, U.S. District Judge William D. Stiehl has not responded to interrogatories and a request for production served on him, says a plaintiff in a St. Clair County personal injury suit.
In his suit against the federal judge, Amos C. Mosby, Jr. claims he was driving on McClintock Avenue in Belleville on Aug. 13, 2011, around 1:20 p.m. when Stiehl, driving on Garden Boulevard near its intersection with McClintock, ran a stop sign and caused a collision.
Stiehl has denied the allegations and has asked that the case be dismissed.
A hearing scheduled earlier this month on Mosby's motion to compel discovery answers from Stiehl was continued until July 15.
Circuit Judge Robert LeChien presides.
Mosby is represented by Amy Collignon Gunn of the Simon Law Firm in St. Louis.
Stiehl is represented by David C. Berwin of Evans & Dixon in St. Louis.
Stiehl presides as federal judge in the Southern District of Illinois. He was nominated by President Ronald Reagan and has served since 1986. He was born in 1925.
