What happens if the plaintiff does not answer summary judgment

Recommended Posts

Facts and evidence put forward at Summary Judgment are generally viewed 'in the light most favorable to the nonmoving party'.  If you submitted some pretty solid evidence and the other side failed to counter that evidence, you will most likely prevail by default.  Now, it's possible they unintentionally missed the deadline and will file a response at some point, and the judge will probably allow their response in the interest of preventing a 'miscarriage of justice'.
