Civil Procedure – discovery – sanctions — default judgment

Carl Dorn filed suit against the daughter of his deceased wife. Dorn alleged that the daughter, Marjorie Johnson, converted to her own use assistance payments that should have gone to her mother and, presumably, Dorn. After Johnson failed to comply with a court order to produce bank records of an account she held jointly with her mother, the circuit court, as a sanction, entered default judgment in favor of Dorn. Johnson appeals, arguing that the record does not support the circuit court’s discretionary decision to impose default judgment as a sanction. We affirm the circuit court. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
