Assignment 2: Midweek Production Assignment: Drafting Assignment—Requests for Admissions
The request to admit is a document that has some special significance in a trial. It asks the opposing side to admit to facts and conclusions of law. This document will eliminate many areas from the trial proceeding because the issued admitted will no longer need to be litigated.
At this stage, you should have answers to the following questions:
- What types of requests to admit would you make in this case?
- Why is the request to admit something more than just an evidence collection tool?
As a paralegal on the Harper case, you have been in charge of keeping track of the file and drafting most court and discovery documents under the supervision of your attorney. When reviewing the file, you note that the defendant, O’Fay, neglected to affirmatively respond to what you believe are indisputable facts. You relay this information to your supervising attorney, who directs you to draft and serve a request for admissions on O’Fay.
Compile your draft in a Microsoft Word document.
