2. Document Requests
These require parties to produce documents that could be material evidence at trial. They include requests for emails, contracts, and other files related to the case in question.
These are written questions by one party requiring answers under oath from another. These can range from basic inquiries to specific legal points. A party can serve up to 40 interrogatories, depending on court orders. After service, the opposing side has up to 30 days to file their responses.
4. Inspection Orders
They allow attorneys access to suit properties to evaluate their conditions before arguing ownership rights. Inspection orders are standard in real estate matters such as residential property leases, boundary line conflicts, and other scenarios that necessitate physical inspections.
5. Requests for Admission
These are similar to interrogatories in that they pose written questions to be answered under oath by the respondent. However, they differ slightly as they only focus on matters already established by the evidence presented during discovery. Requests for admission allow one party to verify previously disclosed facts or legal points to save time otherwise spent arguing the same issues during trial.
Subpoenas require third parties not directly involved with the case to produce documents or evidence related to the dispute. These are standard where parties need access to records from outside sources to obtain further information about claims made by either side.
To learn more about other discovery requests and their admissibility in court, consult an attorney or research Greene County, Missouri, Circuit Court information.
