Name for re-drafted discovery requests and responses?

San Diego, CA |

If during a meet and confer process the propounding party agrees to re-draft certain requests to discovery for production of documents, or interrogatories, and the responding party agrees to re-draft some of its responses, what are the re-drafted requests and responses called? Are they called supplemental? If so, is there an introductory paragraph in the papers which states or explains that they are re-drafted?

Is there a specific CCP section which covers this point?

  1. Depending upon the extent of the changes, the re-drafted responses can be called AMENDED RESPONSES TO INTERROGATORIES, or SUPPLEMENTAL RESPONSES TO INTERROGATORIES or FURTHER RESPONSES TO INTERROGATORIES. It really doesn't matter that much what you title the document in the caption. You don't really need an introductory paragraph, but if you have one, just reference the discovery request and set number to which you are providing further/supplemental responses.

  2. Depends upon the stipulation of the parties. If you have a written agreement that Special Interrog 4 is deemed to mean ...., and deft agrees to amend its answer w/in ___ days, then you dont even have to re write the interrog. If the agreement is that some discovery requests will be re drafted, then you need to redo them with a new set number and pick up numbering where you left off. Then serve them and have opp party answer them.


  3. i agree with attorenys Chen and Kopelson.
