I am in the middle of litigation in a Texas Justice Court suit. I was granted Pre-trial discovery and the defendant filed a counterclaim. Do I need to file a new motion for discovery to request additional documents that pertain specifically to the counterclaim? Not that it matters but, There are two separate attorneys. One for the defense and one for the counterclaim.
Probably best to file an additional motion. Some judges are more strict than others and it is always best to place safe with a judge.
This is not legal advice. You should always discuss the specifics of your issue in person with an attorney. Be aware that there are time limits on all claims that depend on the kind of claim, so do not delay in seeking an attorney.
Just send your discovery request. See if you get an objection.
Was my answer "HELPFUL" and/or a "BEST ANSWER?" I appreciate you for noting same. Thank you. The information contained herein is not to be construed as legal advice.
