Q What does the term discovery mean in a lawsuit.
The discovery process is a part of your lawsuit where each side gets to ask the other side a lot of questions. Some questions are in writing and are called interrogatories. Each side has the right to seek documents from the other side. That is called requests for production. Each side can also question each other face-to-face and the questioning is under oath and transcribed. That is called depositions. Generally, during the discovery process each side shares information with the other side. There are not supposed to be any suprises in court.
