NORTH KINGSTOWNâTimothy Fry, ex-husband to convicted murderer Kimberly Fry, will be able to continue his civil suit against Rhode Island Hospital (RIH) and his familyâs former therapist Wendy Phillips after submitting court-ordered questions to the defendants.
Per Superior Court Judge Louis Matosâ July 31 order, Fry had until Sept. 14 to submit his answers regarding his suit, in which he claims that Phillips and RIH were negligent in their duties prior to his wifeâs killing of their daughter, Camden Alexis Fry, in 2009.
According to Craig Berke, spokesperson for the Rhode Island Judiciary, Fry had not submitted the court-ordered answers during his suitâs discovery phase as of Tuesday, which would result in the caseâs dismissal if he did not respond by Sept. 14.
âIn a civil case, [defendants] can prepare a list of questions to be submitted for [a plaintiff] to answer. It is very common, and the questions are about their background, employment, and their role in things that happened in connection with the case, and they are obligated to answer those questions.â
âHe delayed responding to the point that the attorneys for the defendants said âLook, he is not answering our questionsâ,â he continued.
Fryâs attorney Michael Sendley, however, stated that his client has submitted his answers to the defendants in his suit, and that the caseâs dismissal will not go forward per Matosâ conditional order.
