Discovery Is When Both Sides in Court Exchange Information
Video Transcribed: What is discovery? I am Muskogee Attorney Eric Strocen, and I’m here to talk to you about this important topic.
Discovery in Oklahoma is the process by which both sides to any action in court exchange information. Now that exchange of information could look different ways, depending on the type of case that we’re dealing with.
More importantly, for your purposes, is to understand that you have to request specifically what you’re looking for and if it’s appropriate and it’s something that is required to be sent over to you, then the other side has no choice.
Now there are exceptions to this rule as in the case of criminal law, if the prosecution has evidence that could clear your name, they have a mandatory obligation to turn that over to the other side per the Constitution.
