DearCustomer- This depends on whether there has been a request for discovery by opposing counsel. If so then you are required to provide this information as soon as it is available to you. If you do not provide the documents then the opposing council could object to its admission due to surprise or failure to comply with discovery requests.

If there is no discovery request that has been made in the case then you would not have to supply the information. Due to the fact that it is common practice in court cases to share evidence with opposing counsel I see no reason not to supply copies to the other side. If the court thinks you are playing games it will not be happy so any appearance of trying to conceal information would be frowned upon.
