Torts — Dismissal — Fraud on the court — Trial court did not abuse discretion by dismissing personal injury suit for fraud on the court where plaintiff fraudulently concealed his history of chronic low back pain by falsely testifying about his medical history during deposition — Appeals — Defendant’s death did not render appeal moot, as personal injury actions survive the death of the alleged tortfeasor — Under circumstances where appeal was ready for decision aside from pending oral argument, and it was appellant who requested oral argument, defendant’s death required appellate court to cancel scheduled oral argument and decide appeal on the briefs
