I would really appreciate if somebody can give me some advice about this , I don't know what to do
Ok , I got summons , I already replied , one month later They started the discovery Process (admissions, productions of documents and interrogatories ) I replied on time , 5 days later I received this letter
I FIND YOUR OBJECTIONS TROUBLING .YOU OBJECT TO A NUMBER OF REQUESTS ON THE GROUNDS THAT THE PARTIES ARE IN THE MISDT OF DISCOVERY AND ESSENTIALLY THAT PLAINTIFF HAS NOT YET PROVEN IT'S CASE TO YOUR SATISFACTION .
These are not relevant grounds to object .It is true that the parties are in the misdt of Discovery and as such,you The Defendant have a duty to respond with full,honest and complete answers to our valid requests. Further, one party to case is not required to prove it's case to the satisfaction of the other before the other party is required to respond to Discovery requests.
Finally I must ask you provide a full,complete and honest answer to Interrogatory 13 ( THE INTERROGATORY # 13 WAS "STATE THE NAME OF EVERY FINANCIAL INSTITUTION (BANK CREDIT UNION, ETC ) THAT HAS , OR HAS HAD WITHIN THE PAST TEN (10 YEARS ) , AN ACCOUNT (SAVINGS,CHECKING , ETC ) ON WHICH YOU ARE A SIGNER,CO-SIGNER , OWNER , USER OR OTHERWISE AUTHORIZED TO ACCESS. )
mY ANSWER WAS THE INTERROGATORY 13 IS OBJECTED BY THE DEFENDANT ON THE GROUNDS THAT IT IS PERSONAL,CONFIDENTIAL AND PRIVATE . tHIS INTERROGATORY SEEKS INFORMATION THAT IS NOT RELEVANT TO ANY ISSUE IN THIS ACTION. INFORMATION NOT CALCULATED TO LEAD TO THE DISCOVERY OF ADMISSIBLE EVIDENCE,INFORMATION NOT RELEVANT TO ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS ACTION AND WOULD RESULT IN THE DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION WHERE SUCH DISCLOSURE WOULD VIOLATE THE PRIVACY RIGHTS OF THE DEFENDANT .
The letter said " This case is arguably one that is of a financial nature , Interrogatory 13 is requesting that you identify financial institutions where you have banked over the past 10 years . These institutions undoubtedly possess information relevant to this matter . As such I must require you provide the information requested .
If I do not receive a response to aid Discovery by xxxxx I may file a motion to compel .
My question is Now What is next ??
Do i have to provide that information to them ?
