Under CCP 2033.410, a request for admissions that is not timely answered may be “deemed admitted” by court order, but the deemed admission is binding only on the party that made the admission.  An agent’s deemed admissions (for failure to timely answer requests for admission) do not bind the principal codefendant, even when the basis for the action against the principal codefendant is vicarious liability arising from the acts of the agent.).
