Often, people unfamilar with trial practice think they can file a complaint and walk away. Then at some point, “someone” will contact them about the result. The truth is there is a lot to do between the filing of the case and the final judgment. One important step is discovery.

The Trial Court Law Libraries, however, have developed a wonderful pathfinder on this subject. Start your research at home, then come into the library to finish it off.
