REQUESTS FOR ADMISSION - Amended December 1, 2017
In connection with any objection to a request for admission, the objecting party shall, with the filing of a request or moving papers, (i) file a copy of the request for admission simultaneously with the filing of the objection, (ii) specify and quote verbatim in the objection each request to which the objection is made, and (iii) immediately following each specification, set forth the basis of the objection.
This rule is derived from Former Local Bankruptcy Rule 13(f) and is an adaptation of Civil Rule 37.1 of the Local District Rules.
This rule was amended in 2017 to conform to similar amendments made to Local Bankruptcy Rules 7033-1(e)(1) and 7034-1(a). The language is intended to maintain the force and effect of Local Bankruptcy Rule 7005-1(a)’s general prohibition on filing discovery documents, while allowing the moving party to append any relevant discovery material to a discovery conference request or motion dealing with an objection to a request for admission.
