Is it of any consequence when a plaintiff fails to meet the deadline for submitting a final witness list? The plaintiff's legal team has missed multiple deadlines and its delays for other reasons are outrageous.

Sounds as if they get to use no witnesses.
Maybe they didn't have any and want to cause confusion by not answering!

You need to research the case law and prepare a strong written objection to the testimony of the undisclosed or tardily disclosed witness.

 

But depending upon your jurisdiction and the rules, failure to furnish the list may often be excused upon a showing of good cause or the absence of prejudice or absence of unfair surprise.

 

For example, if they designate a witness that has already been identified in other discovery materials and you failed to depose this witness during the discovery period, this would tend to be view differently than identifying a surprise witness whose name never appeared anywhere within the discovery.

 

If you didn't conduct any discovery, then you are going to be hard pressed to claim shock, surprise and prejudice!
