Texas, PRA Suit, No discovery provided, Trial approaching


Recommended Posts

I filed an answer then a petition to file discovery. Had a hearing on my answer and judge allowed the case to continue. She asked to see a draft of the request for discovery. I provided it and was approved to submit it. I did so and it was delivered to the attorney 45+ days ago and I have received no response. I have received notification of a trial date just over a month away. 

Should I file a motion to compel discovery?  If not what should I be ready to say/argue when I come to trial?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide. John
