LIVE ZOOM: Civil Lawsuit Basics: Interrogatories and RFAs: Getting Another Party to Answer Questions in Writing

Thursday, February 29, 2024: 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.


--- ZOOM INFORMATION WILL BE EMAILED TO REGISTRANTS PRIOR TO CLASS START TIME FOR CLASSES HELD VIA ZOOM---


The process of discovery in a civil lawsuit allows a party to obtain information and documents relevant to the suit. This helps the parties know ahead of time what evidence might be presented at trial, or to resolve the case prior to trial. This class explores when and how to use two different tools for getting a party to a lawsuit to answer questions in writing – interrogatories and requests for admission (“RFAs”) – in California state court civil cases.   

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 (RFAs – statements another party must deny or admit)
  • Common uses for these discovery tools
  • How to use official “form" interrogatories and requests for admission
  • When to bring motions to compel responses
  • How to respond to these discovery requests, including how to make appropriate objections

Class approved for Court Interpreter Minimum Continuing Education (CIMCE) credit.
