Ok, so you filed your complaint, now what do you do?

Often, people unfamilar with trial practice think they can file a complaint and walk away. Then at some point, "someone" will contact them about the result. The truth is there is a lot to do between the filing of the case and the final judgment. One important step is discovery. There is no preprinted form for discovery, and as it is not mandatory, no one is obligated to inform parties of this critical tool. The Trial Court Law Libraries, however, have developed a wonderful pathfinder on this subject. Start your research at home, then come into the library to finish it off.
