Subject: Discovery Documents for the Peterson Case
Date: May 24
We are in the discovery stage for the Peterson case. I sent a request for production of documents to Mr. Truesdale, the opposing attorney. He quickly provided the information and he also sent the completed interrogatory. The request for admissions will be sent to us next week.
Mr. Peterson’s conversation with his doctor are privileged. Because of this, Mr. Truesdale has made a request for a physical examination. The date and time of the appointment and name of the independent doctor are on the request. A mental examination has not been requested yet.
In addition, he asked whether Mr. Peterson will consider an out-of-court settlement. He asked if you would contact him about this before a trial date has been set.
Finally – do we need to issue a subpoena to the witness in this case? Please let me know so I can request one from the clerk of the court if necessary.
