Rule 31. Depositions Upon Written Questions

Advisory Commission Comments to Rules 31.01-31.03

Advisory Commission Comments

Rule 31 previously designated questions propounded to witnesses thereunder as interrogatories. The terminology has been changed to avoid confusion with Rule 33, which provides for interrogatories to parties. Written questions may be submitted to any witness, whether a party or not, under Rule 31. Rule 33 permits interrogatories to be served upon parties only. [1979.]
