Discovery Disputes

Motions to Compel

The parties are required to strictly comply with the meet and confer requirements of Dist. Idaho Loc. Civ. R.  37.1 prior to filing any discovery motions. Although emails or letters may, in some cases, satisfy the meet and confer requirement depending upon the complexity of the dispute, Judge Grasham considers an in person, telephonic, or video conference the best practice in complying with the Rule.  

If the parties have complied with the meet and confer requirements of Dist. Idaho Loc. Civ. R.  37.1, but still deem court intervention necessary for resolution of a discovery dispute, the parties MUST contact Chambers and inform the law clerk assigned to the case of the existence of the dispute prior to filing a motion. 

The matter then may proceed on an expedited basis, in which the parties will be allowed to file condensed briefs summarizing the dispute and the parties’ respective positions without the formalities and extended briefing schedule set forth in Dist. Idaho Loc. Civ. R. 7.1.
