United States Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit.

Decided August 21, 1978.

Opinion November 17, 1978.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Eliot A. Landau, Woodridge, Ill., for plaintiffs-appellants.

James R. Schirott, David R. Novoselsky, Chicago, Ill., for defendants-appellees.

Before CUMMINGS, SPRECHER and BAUER, Circuit Judges.


The court, having read the briefs, addressed itself to the record, and heard oral arguments, finds no abuse of discretion and no violation of constitutional rights in the lower court's order dismissing the appellants' case under Rule 37(b) for noncompliance with pre-trial discovery orders. Similarly, we find no abuse of discretion in the lower court's denial of leave to file a third amended complaint.
