On this week's episode of The Legal Difference, attorney Wes Gralapp talks about discovery during the process of a litigation. Discovery is a part of the litigation process that gives the opportunity to find out more about the claim made against you and the other party's evidence, so that you may refute it. In some cases, a resolution can be made at this point without having to go to court. There are different types of discovery: "Interrogatory" and "Request for Production of Documents". Wes goes into detail about each of these types and how they can help your case. He also describes a motion practice, which comes before trial and asks the court to decide on an issue that is pertinent to the case, such as definitively determining fault. The issue can be decided by the judge or a jury to make the future proceedings more efficient and straightforward for each party.
