    OPINION *

    If a party gets four extensions of his discovery deadlines and blows through them all without justification, he may well not get a fifth chance. The District Court here was admirably patient with Paul Cox, but that patience is finite. It repeatedly warned him that it would dismiss his case unless he complied. When Cox flouted the Court’s deadline yet again, the Court was entirely justified in following through and dismissing the case with prejudice.

    There were multi-syllable words in the link. You can't expect someone who was in corporate to be able to read that. Plus @Old Man Jingles went to diploma mill school Georgia Tech
