Jensen v. Pioneer Dodge Ctr., Inc
In Jensen v. Pioneer Dodge Ctr., Inc., 702 P.2d 98, 101 (Utah 1985), the Utah Supreme Court dealt with a defendant that failed to respond in time to a request for admission that the defendant had "willfully and unlawfully converted plaintiff's property."
The Jensen court reversed the trial court's decision not to treat the matters requested as admitted, further stating that: "matters admitted are conclusively established as true unless the trial court, on motion by the defendant, permits withdrawal or amendment of the admissions." Id. at 100.
