Gymnastics Federation fails to obey court order

Lawyers representing gymnast Thema Williams are seeking to have have the T&T Gymnastics Federation's defence to her multi-million dollar lawsuit against it, struck out. Senior Counsel Marin Daly signalled his intention to file an application during a case management hearing before Justice Frank Seepersad in the Port-of-Spain High Court on Tuesday.

Daly complained that the federation disobeyed Seepersad's order in relation to disclosing documents pertinent to Williams' lawsuit.
