What is a Motion to Compel?

A Motion to Compel may filed by the party themselves (if they are representing themselves), but is typically filed by the party’s attorney. A Motion to Compel should be filed with the appropriate court when the opposing party refuses to produce documents or answer questions in Discovery which the party feels is necessary for the case. The Motion will state why the information should be provided, outline how the opposing party has failed to answer, and ask that the judge compel the opposing party to produce the information through a written court order.
