McKeague v. One World Technologies, Inc., 16-2148

In an appeal arising out of a personal injury case alleging design defect, in which the plaintiff's two lawyers did nothing to prosecute the plaintiff's claims within generous deadlines, received a second chance, and then failed to oppose a pending motion for summary judgment, the district court's refusal to grant yet another reprieve is affirmed where it did not abuse its discretion, because given the failure of plaintiff's lawyers to prosecute his claim and their repeated flouting of reasonable deadlines, the district court demonstrated a reasonable sense of nuance in doing the necessary balancing.
