It is true that when a party fails to challenge a disclosure request in a timely fashion, inquiry into the propriety of the information sought is foreclosed (see CPLR 3122; Coffey v Orbachs, Inc., 22 A.D.2d 317) but that doctrine does not apply to disclosure requests which are "palpably improper", and the challenged discovery and inspection notice is [92 A.D.2d 936 Page 937]
