Event description

Description

The process of discovery in a civil lawsuit allows a party to obtain information and documents relevant to the suit, which helps the parties know ahead of time what evidence might be presented at trial, or to resolve the case prior to trial through settlement or summary judgment. This class explores when and how to use two important types of discovery requests, interrogatories and requests for admission, in California state court.


Class covers:

  • The purpose of interrogatories (questions to another party regarding contentions, facts, witnesses and documents in the case)
  • The purpose of requests for admissions (statements another party must deny or admit)
  • Common uses for these discovery tools
  • How to use form interrogatories and requests for admission, and when to bring motions to compel responses
  • How to respond to these discovery requests, including making appropriate objections
