During the course of your case, you will engage in discovery, which is exactly what it sounds like, the discovering and disclosing of information about the opposing party. This includes the answering of questions and exchanging of information by way of a document production.
The exchanging of documents starts when receiving a written Request for Production of Documents. Each party is allowed to request documents from the other, and Maryland Rules have not imposed a limit on how many requests may be asked of a party, within reason. Providing the documents to the opposing side is known as the Response to Request for Production of Documents, and contains a written portion as well as the documents themselves. You have 30 days from service of the Request for Production of Documents to gather what is requested so it can be provided to the opposing side.
