This appears to be the Arizona equivalent of discovery. You know, interrogatories, etc. It seems that they simply tell both parties to exchange whatever information they have. Since you are the defendant, I would submit nothing, unless you have proof of some horrible violation like SOL. Make them prove their case. Not a bad system, although it precludes you asking for specific things, must be a lower level court.

I do not know that this excludes discovery, check the rules. I have dealt with this before, the disclosure statement is intended usually to be a starting point with the parties disclosing what they initially intend to use. At pretrial the parties then can set further discovery deadlines.
