What is an Opposition To A Motion To Compel Discovery?

An opposition to a motion to compel discovery requests that the court refrain from ordering the opposing party to provide certain discovery. A party can oppose a motion to compel on grounds that, among other things, the information sought is irrelevant, is unlikely to lead to discoverable evidence, violates the attorney-client privilege, or imposes an undue burden or extreme inconvenience on the responding party. Opposition papers are usually supported by a statement of facts, a legal brief or memorandum with citations to legal authority, and if necessary, exhibits, declarations, and affidavits.
