RULE 26.3 DISCLOSURES AND DISCOVERY NOT TO BE FILED

« Back

 

(a) Papers Not to be Filed. The following papers must be served upon other attorneys or unrepresented parties, but not filed with the clerk:

(1) disclosures required under Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(a)(1) and (2);
(2) interrogatories under Fed. R. Civ. P. 33;
(3) requests for production or inspection under Fed. R. Civ. P. 34;
(4) requests for admissions under Fed. R. Civ. P. 36;
(5) the responses thereto.

(b) Conventionally-Served Verification. As stated in D. Kan. Rule 5.4.2, registration as a Filing User constitutes consent to electronic service of these documents. However, a party's original signature verifying answers to interrogatories must be served conventionally. The verification may be served as a separate document if it references the interrogatory answers with adequate specificity (e.g., "plaintiff's answers to defendant's Interrogatory Nos. 1 through 10, which answers were served by e- mail on March 1, 2003").

(c) Certificate of Service. A party serving such disclosures and discovery must, at the time of service, file with the clerk a certificate of service stating the type of disclosure or discovery or response served, the date and type of service, and the party served.
