“[A]ppellants initiated the underlying suit and then essentially abandoned the proceedings they had set in motion. Appellants failed to participate in depositions even though the trial court and appellees attempted to make remote participation in the depositions possible. Not until appellees’ fourth motion to compel did the trial court impose death penalty sanctions on appellants and strike their pleadings. Under these circumstances, we conclude the trial court did not abuse its discretion in awarding  sanctions four times in response to appellants’ failure to appear at depositions and ultimately striking appellants’ pleadings.” Boktor v. U.S. Bank, No. 05-19-01306-CV (April 7, 2021) (emphasis added).
