What is an Interrogatories?
Interrogatories are written questions to an opposing party. They are a discovery tool used by parties to obtain relevant information from each other. When served with valid, timely interrogatories, the opposing party must provide responses or objections within an amount of time usually determined by statute or statewide civil procedure rule. In some states the number of interrogatories a party may propound is limited. In a federal case, a party may serve no more than 25 written interrogatories.
