What does overbroad objection mean?
A. Blanket, unsupported objections that a discovery request is “ vague, overly broad, or unduly burdensome” are, by themselves, meaningless, and disregarded by the Court. A party objecting on these bases must explain the specific and particular ways in which a request is vague, overly broad, or unduly burdensome.

What are the two types of objection?

What is an overbroad law?
A law that prohibits “offensive, annoying, or harassing” speech to another in a public place may appear overbroad, but a state high court may have limited that law to apply only to unprotected fighting words. A defendant can assert an overbreadth challenge even if his or her own speech could be criminalized.
What is a general objection?
ANSWER: A fictional document. A non-existent objection neither based in statutory authority nor found in case law. A statement by a party during the discovery phase that they will neither be held to the Code of Civil Procedure nor the rules of evidence.
What does unduly burdensome mean?
Unduly burdensome means requiring such a high investment of money, time, or any other resource or asset to achieve compliance that a reasonably prudent businessperson would not operate.
How do you make good objections to discovery?
Make it a lead-off “general objection.” Object to anything that is not relevant to the “subject matter” (no longer the standard) or not likely to lead to admissible evidence (no longer the standard). Don’t say if anything is being withheld on the basis of the objection. Use boilerplate wording from form files.
Do form interrogatories need to be verified?
Interrogatories are written questions sent by one party to another, which the responding party must answer under penalty of perjury. In addition, your responses must be “verified,” meaning that you must sign under penalty of perjury that your responses are true and correct (CCP § 2030.250).
How do you respond to an interrogatory letter?
When responding to interrogatories, it is critical that you:
- Always Tell the Truth. This is not the time to “forget” to mention something questionable about your past, nor is it wise to mislead investigators in any way.
- Be Clear.
- Be Thorough.
- Get Assistance.
