Thanks. I have to go. If I am late, can I have discovery at pre-trial or trial?
And I discovered defendant made an false statement on his bankruptcy statement. Can I file a perjury separately other than adversary proceeding?
And where is the request for admission? I do not need to put "Request for Admission?"
A: Pretrial. No discovery is permitted during trial, except to call a witness who may testify differently than may have been previously expected.
A: You can file a complaint of bankruptcy fraud with the U.S. Trustee, at this link. Other than that, if you prove that the defendant committed a fraud against the court during the proceedings, then you could ask the Bankruptcy Court to sanction the defendant, pursuant to the court's inherent powers under Bankr. Code 105(a), or under FRBP 9011.
A: No, but you need to explain to the court what is wrong with the defendant's answers to your request for admissions.
Hope this helps.
