Our Illinois Litigaiton Defense Lawyers Explain The Written Discovery Phase Of Litigation

Illinois Civil Defense Lawyers

Illinois civil defense attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses the written discovery phase of litigation.

Illinois Civil Defense Lawyers

Our Illinois civil defense attorneys discuss the importance of written discovery in the preparation for depositions and civil trials.  Written discovery documents are written requests for detailed answers to a series of questions, requests for production of specific documents, and requests to admit certain facts to be true. Written discovery can reduce the number of issues in dispute at trial and it can often bring the parties closer to settlement by making the basis for each side's position clear.

In this article, our Illinois litigation defense lawyers also explain common objections to discovery requests. We discuss how those objections and other failures to adequately respond to discovery requests are resolved, first through correspondence between the attorneys in the form of 201(k) letters, and, if that fails, through motions to compel discovery and hearing before the court.

Motions For Summary Judgment Explained By Our Illinois Civil Defense Attorneys

Illinois litigation defense attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains how civil defense lawyers use motions for summary judgment to win cases without the expense of a trial.

Illinois Litigation Defense Attorneys

Our Illinois civil defense attorneys explain motions for summary judgment in civil litigation. Motions for summary judgment can be used to dispose of a claim without the need for a costly trial.  Courts will issue judgment in favor of the defendant without a trial if the defendant can show that there is no real factual dispute that must be proven before the judge or a jury, and that, based on the facts that the plaintiff cannot rebut, the law entitles the defendant to judgment in the case. Motions for summary judgment may be filed at any point after the pleadings have been filed, but are most commonlyl filed after written discovery and depositions, once most of the facts are apparent to both sides. If favorable settlement is not possible, motions for summary judgment are a key tool for terminating litigation before trial.
