What is an Initial Disclosures?

Initial disclosures are information that a party to a federal lawsuit must provide to the opposing side before a discovery request is made. The meeting at which the disclosures are made is often referred to as the ‘early meeting of counsel.’ The information a party is required to provide includes, among other things, the name, address, and telephone number of persons likely to have discoverable information. Certain actions are exempt from the requirement of initial disclosures, including actions for review on administrative records, a petition for habeas corpus, or a proceeding ancillary to a proceeding in another court.
