Local Rules of Civil Procedure

LR 36 - Requests for Admission

(See Fed. R. Civ. P. 36)

LR 36-1 Requests for Admission - Generally

(a) Not Filed With the Court (See LR 5-9)

Unless directed by the Court, requests for admission will not be filed with the Court. Instead they will be maintained by counsel and made available to parties upon request. Requests for admission presented for filing without Court approval will be returned to the offering party. To facilitate responding, a courtesy copy of the requests for admission must be e-mailed concurrently pursuant to LR 5-9(b).

(b) Use of Non-Filed Requests

This rule does not preclude the use of requests for admission and responses as exhibits or evidence in support of a motion or at trial.

(c) Definitions

Each request must state in concise language the admission requested. In no case may a request for admission refer to a definition not contained within the request for admission or preamble. Only terms actually used in the request for admission may be defined.

LR 36-2 Response or Objections (See Fed. R. Civ. P. 36(a))

Every response, denial, or objection must set forth each request in full, followed by the admission, denial, or objection.
