Discovery question

Postby DNA1984 » Fri May 14, 2010 12:59 am

I had question on my test about discovery standards and one of the questions asked about attorney managed. I know attorney managed is claim or defense. However, there was a choice that was claim or defense and non-privileged. I wasn't chose claim or defense as my answer, but I am not sure if it's right. I don't really see how non-privileged fits in striclty as the standard. What do you guys think the right answer was?

You should re-read your original question, because it's utterly incomprehensible. In fact, it is so incomprehensible nobody else has bothered to respond, because they don't understand what you're asking.

Or maybe they just don't know the answer...

This is what my question on the test was.

The "standard" for attorney managed discovery is:
a)claim or defense
b)claim or defense and non priveleged

What do you guys think it is?

R. 26(b)(1) allows for discovery of "nonprivileged matter relevant to any party's claim or defense."

The damn prof mentioned the "standard" as claim or defense about 20 times in class and never said anything about it included non priveleged info. I know it's implicit, but it threw me off b/c I wasn't sure wtf it had to do with the "standard" per se. Maybe the scope... but no standard end of rant!

Maybe you should not be such a dick and get off your computer for a few minutes and learn some people skills. 16K posts, jesus christ man, ever think that if you weren't such an asshole you wouldn't be restricted to internet forums in making social contact with others...

Maybe you're the one who should learn some people skills, instead of getting your panties in a bunch because someone went out of their way to help you. Ever think that if you weren't such a dickwad someone would have pointed out the Federal rules of civ pro to you earlier so you could use it as a study aid

You're right, I have no people skills. I have no friends that would have pointed that out to me. Thanks internet friend. Next time, I'll read the "goddamn civil rules of procedure."
