Madison County Circuit Judge William Mudge on June 27 granted the defendant's motion to compel discovery in a lawsuit over a lost membership at the Collinsville Recreation Club.
Robert Dorman of Collinsville filed suit against David Tarrant last October, alleging Tarrant started rumors about him, which led to a vote against him and his ouster from the club.
Dorman also claims he lost his 125th interest in the equity of the corporation's assets. He is seeking a judgment of more than $50,000.
Mudge gave the plaintiff until July 9 to file responses to the defendant's discovery.
Tarrant filed a motion, requesting the court to compel the plaintiff to respond to his written discovery requests within 14 days of the motion filed June 11.
The defense motion to compel stated Tarrant served interrogatories and requests for production of documents to the plaintiff on April 28, but plaintiffs have not responded.
William L. Berry of William Berry and Associates in Collinsville represents the plaintiff.
John F. Cunningham of Brown & James in Belleville represents the defense.
Madison County Circuit Court case number: 11-L-1118.
