CALIFORNIA CIVIL DISCOVERY LAW

DISCOVERY & PRIVILEGE
The Discovery Act contains detailed provisions that resolve most issues. The case outlines do not attempt to cover the statutory provisions in any detail but are designed to provide a quick reference to relevant case law for the knowledgeable attorney. Although some description of cases is provided, they are not intended to serve as a practice guide or treatise but to provide access to the relevant cases for the lawyer to refresh his recollection, read and evaluate. One outline deals with basic principles of discovery to provide an introduction and overview for lawyers unfamiliar with the subject.
