Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello! Any documents that you plan on using in the actual trial must be shown to the opposing party before the judge can see them. Generally, parties submit what is known as a trial brief at least five days before the upcoming trial, in which you would attach all the exhibits and documents you are planning on using.
If I have answered all of your questions please press accept and provide positive feedback so I will get credit for assisting you. PLEASE NOTE: this is a PAID answering service and we only receive credit for assisting you if you accept the answer. If you are not satisfied and need additional assistance, please ask before providing negative feedback and I would be glad to assist you further. Sometimes I am working with more than one customer at a time so please allow a chance to respond. Thank you and I wish you the best in your situation! I strongly suggest that you consult with a local attorney in your area on this matter.

Does the opposing party have to submit to me ahead of time the questions they plan on asking one of my witnesses? What if there was a tape recording of a particular event that they used during the hearing officer conference but I was never provided a copy of the tape. Are they required to send me a copy of the tape prior to the trial?
