Attorney steve’s ultimate deposition tips
An “interrogatory” is a written question sent by one party to the lawsuit to the other party (usually, the opposing party). A plaintiff may, for example, send interrogatories to the defendant, and the defendant may respond with interrogatories to the plaintiff. In a lawsuit, written interrogatories are one form of “discovery.” Discovery is one method by which a party to a case obtains details from the opposing party that could be helpful in the lawsuit – whether to win or defend the lawsuit.
You represent the opposing party with interrogatories, which are formal questions about the lawsuit. Interrogatories should only be served on parties to a case, unlike depositions, which can be aimed at non-parties. The Maryland Rules of Civil Procedure allow you to represent each party with thirty interrogatories. You can serve thirty interrogatories to one opponent and another thirty to the other if you have two opponents. Furthermore, the Maryland Rules do not mandate that all interrogatories be served at the same time to a group. You can serve some interrogatories at the start of the litigation and the others later, as long as the total number of interrogatories served on each opponent does not exceed thirty.
How to win a civil case
Learn what to do if the other side sends you a written discovery request. Requests for records, answers to written questions (called “interrogatories”), and admissions or denials of such details (called “request for admissions”) are examples.
You have thirty days to mail your written replies back to the other side if you have submitted discovery requests (which will most likely come in the mail). It’s dangerous to miss the thirty-day deadline. It’s possible that you’ll lose the case as a result of it.
Tap on one of the following sections to learn how to respond to discovery requests you’ve received:

How to Respond to Admissions Requests
You have thirty days to write written responses if you have obtained interrogatories (unless the court has ordered something else). Your written responses are not filed with the court. You actually return the original to the other group. The court can impose sanctions if you do not return your answers within thirty days.

A individual who has been served with interrogatories has thirty days to answer in writing. If you object, you must answer each interrogatory individually and fully in writing under oath. You’ll have to clarify why you’re objecting. Your responses and objections must be signed.
A individual who has been served with a Request for Production of Documents has 30 days to supply the documents from the date of service. Computer files, voice mails, emails, web sites, and text messages all fall into the category of “documents.”
