Do I have to respond to discovery?
Yes. Under the Indiana trial rules, discovery must be responded to within thirty days. This deadline can be extended either by requesting an extension from the opposing counsel, or opposing party if they are unrepresented, or formally through the court if it becomes necessary. If you do not comply with the discovery request, the opposing party can file with the court a motion to compel. If you still fail to comply with the discovery request, the court can hold you in contempt and limit what you can do in court for the final hearing.
