Reynolds v. Bonar

Richard Reynolds filed a complaint against Christopher Bonar, claiming personal injuries arising from a motor vehicle accident. Bonar later filed a motion for sanctions for Reynolds' failure to comply with discovery, which the district court granted. Thereafter, Bonar filed a motion to dismiss based on Reynolds' failure to comply with the court's order. The district court granted Bonar's motion and dismissed the complaint without prejudice. Reynolds subsequently re-filed his complaint against Bonar. The district court later dismissed Reynolds' complaint with prejudice for failure to comply with discovery. The Supreme Court affirmed, finding no constitutional violation in the district court's dismissal of Reynolds' complaint with prejudice. The Court also imposed sanctions upon Reynolds.
