Customer Question

In Maryland:Looking to confirm information I got from an attorney: Upon request to Defendant's attorney, am I entitled to most recent home addresses for Defendant's ex-employee witnesses (not Parties) for subpoena purposes even if I would have to propound the depositions through Defendant's attorney? (the addresses could be needed by me to search for the witnesses current locations)

Hi,
Thanks for answering. Actually, you are the attorney whose information I was trying to confirm. Although I am not dissatisfied with your response to that question, I need to have another attorney there confirm your opinion. I need this because I am drafting a request for reconsideration on this issue and I want to make sure I am correct in my assertions that I originally drafted with your opinion in mind.
Justanswer's page on getting another opinion says that you can facilitate this for me. Would you please do that, shift me to another attorney, at least temporarily, so I can have extra assurance that I'm not asserting something that is incorrect.? Thank you...

I'll opt out. No problem. I don't show an earlier question from you on your history.

does this mean I need to put the question back up on the site?
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 7 months ago.
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am a different contributor.
You have to serve the ex employee's attorney because the attorney represents that defendant and these people were employees at the time and as such he represents them. In your requests for discovery you sent to them through their attorney you would be entitled to ask in that discovery for their home address as part of discovery.

I haven't heard yet from another atty but I came across this and wanted to ask you what "solely for impeachment" means vis a vis ex-employee witnesses:Federal rule: ...a party must, without awaiting a discovery request, provide to the other parties: (i) the name and, if known, the address and telephone number of each individual likely to have discoverable information—along with the subjects of that information—that the disclosing party may use to support its claims…unless the use would be solely for impeachment[

oh, I see you are 'different contributor,' could you answer about impeachment please? thanks
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 7 months ago.
Thank you for your reply.
Under the rules they will disclose information, but if these people were employees of the defendant, then they come under the defendant's counsel. So the requests for their addresses have to go through the counsel for the defendant and if he does not provide them in response to your discovery request, then you can do the motion to compel.
Impeachment is a witness who is used only to rebut the evidence submitted by a party.

What is your 'handle' please
