Case Caption: Novelle Watts, Jr. (Appellant/Plaintiff) vs. Two Plus Two, Inc., and Wayne Bell (Appellees/Defendants)Case Number: S.Ct. Civ. No.:2007-127Date: 08/24/2010Author: Hodge, Rhys S. Citation: Summary:

The Court holds that the Superior Court, when deciding whether to dismiss an action brought against multiple defendants for failure to prosecute, is required to weigh the six Halliday factors separately with respect to each defendant. The Court further holds that the Superior Court erred in its weighing of the Halliday factors in this case because only two of the six Halliday factors favored dismissal, and even then only slightly.
