RULE 26.3 DISCLOSURES AND DISCOVERY NOT TO BE FILED


(a) Papers Not to Be Filed. The following papers must be served upon other attorneys or unrepresented parties, but not filed with the clerk:

(1) disclosures required under Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(a)(1) and (2);
(2) interrogatories under Fed. R. Civ. P. 33;
(3) requests for production or inspection under Fed. R. Civ. P. 34;
(4) requests for admissions under Fed. R. Civ. P. 36;
(5) the responses thereto.

(b) Conventionally-Served Verification. As stated in D. Kan. Rule 5.4.2, registration as a Filing User constitutes consent to electronic service of these documents. However, a party’s original signature verifying answers to interrogatories must be served conventionally. The verification may be served as a separate document if it references the interrogatory answers with adequate specificity (e.g., “plaintiff’s answers to defendant’s Interrogatory Nos. 1 through 10, which answers were served by e- mail on March 1, 2003”).

(c) Certificate of Service. A party serving such disclosures and discovery must, at the time of service, file with the clerk a certificate of service stating the type of disclosure or discovery or response served, the date and type of service, and the party served.
