Decision

Claimant, a pro se inmate, moves to compel answers to interrogatories allegedly served in December 2020.

In opposition to the motion defense counsel indicates that he did not receive the

interrogatories until April 2021 and has now provided claimant with a sworn response. There being no reply to the motion or obvious defect in the defendant's responses, the motion is denied as moot.
