What is Lawsuit Discovery?
Defendant files ANSWER
Fact finding occurs through DISCOVERY
Any and All MOTIONS
Possible JUDGMENT, MEDIATION or SETTLEMENT is entered.
A TRIAL may occur when settlement is not reached.
In the litigation process, once the complaint and answer has been filed and the lawsuit begins to develop, the next stage is the fact finding process known as Discovery. During Discovery, each party will filed a series of requests with the opposing party known as interrogatories (asking the opposing party to answer questions), production (asking for documents to be produced) and admissions (asking the opposing party to admit or deny questions). The party must then respond to the Discovery in a given time period. If the party continually fails to answer such requests, a Motion to Compel may be filed with the Court asking the judge to make the party comply with the Discovery requests.
