Recent Revisions to Michigan’s Discovery Rules in Civil Cases Also Impact Probate Proceedings

Probate Lawyer Ann Arbor

The hallmark of the new rules is the implementation of “initial disclosures” shortly after the commencement of a case. Parties in a civil case must disclose the factual basis of their claim of defense, the legal theories on which they rely for their case, possible witnesses or the identity of people with discoverable information, their computation of damages, and the location or types of documents in their possession that are relevant to the case. All of the above-information must be produced by a party early in a civil lawsuit even without being asked.
