Discovery question for California: what is a"set number"? in Is There a Lawyer in the House Posted September 30, 2019 · Report reply Hi all, I have a question about language with regard to discovery (Specifically, I'm working on the Defendants first request for the production of documents) in California. Specifically, CCP §2031.030 (a)(1) reads as follows: "a party demanding inspection, copying, testing, or sampling shall number each set of demands consecutively." why do they use the word "set."? Maybe you only have one demand (not a set), so I'm confused? More confusion: CCP §2031.030 (b) reads as follows: "in the first paragraph immediately below the title of the case, there shall appear the identity of the demanding party, the set number, and the identity of the responding party." again, I'm confused by set number? And why would that go in a paragraph identifying the demanding and responding parties to a discovery request? Do they mean to put forth the number of discovery topics you are about to list? Thank you in advance for your answer!
