Robinson v. Jones Waldo Holbrook & McDonough, PC, 2016 UT App 34 (Feb. 19, 2016)

Feb 19, 2016

 The district court granted summary judgment in favor of defendant law firm in this malpractice action. Plaintiff attempted to oppose the motion by seeking additional time under Rule of Civil Procedure 56(d). Affirming, the Utah Court of Appeals held that the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying plaintiff’s request for time, where plaintiff failed to “explain what facts would likely be uncovered by further discovery” or discuss whether there had been adequate opportunities and a conscientious effort by the party for pursuing discovery.
