Requests for Production of Documents

Requests for production [RFP] are requests for the opposing party to allow a party to inspect and copy the documents (including writings, drawings, graphs, charts, photographs, phono-records, and other data compilations which information can be obtained). In other words, it is a request for the other side to give you documents. The request must describe each individual document or category of documents with “reasonable particularity.” Once served, the opposing party has 35 days to give a written response and must produce the requested documents at the time and place indicated in the request.
