Case Blurb: Asher Assocs LLC, Purpose of Discovery Procedures

Posted by rjbiii on July 12, 2009

Discovery procedures set forth in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure seek to further the interests of justice by minimizing surprise at trial and ensuring wide-ranging discovery of information. To that end, Rule 26(b) permits discovery “regarding any matter . . . that is relevant to the claim or defense of any party” or discovery of any information that “appears reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence.”

Asher Assocs., LLC v. Baker Hughes Oilfield Operations, Inc., 2009 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 40136 at *15 (D. Colo. May 12, 2009)(internal citations removed).
