In the beginning of the Discovery phase...The Defendant's discovery "answers" were notarized & mailed to the Plaintiff.
Is the Defendant required to have his Discovery request to the Plaintiff Notarized.
Ex: Request, Interrogatories, etc...
The answer to your question is no. The answers to Interrogatories are to be verified under oath by either party in response to the Submission of Interrogatories by one of the parties. If you have an attorney, you should direct your questions to him as he can give you more detailed answers. Good luck,

No it is not required to have a Discovery request notarized. There is nothing special about a notary. THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE! YOU NEED TO SPEAK TO AN ATTORNEY WHO IS LICENSED IN YOUR STATE FOR LEGAL ADVICE. This is merely suggestions for you to think about in discussing your situation with the local attorney.
