Discovery Objections

       Objections to discovery may be made when the scope and limits of discovery are breached. There are many situations when such objections may be made. Normally, objections cannot be made when discovery involves any non privileged material that is relevant to either party’s claim or their defense. This material includes the condition, custody, description, existence, location and nature of any documents or any other tangible aspects and the locations of anyone who knows of discoverable material. The court can order the discovery of any material that is relevant to the legal case being pursued. Objections can be raised when the material is privileged or not considered by that party relevant to the case. Also, any information that is relevant may not be admissible at the trial if it is already presumed that it will lead to the discovery of admissible evidence.

       Objections may also be made to the number or amount of depositions and interrogatories or on the length of depositions. These objections may be made if the discovery material is not reasonably accessible because of the cost or difficulty in accessing them. The court may still order the discovery even if objections are made if sufficient good cause is demonstrated.
