Robert J. Will Considers the Challenges of Numerical Limits on Interrogatories

The number of interrogatories patent litigation attorneys can submit to another party is limited to 25 by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 33(a)(1). Sometimes, interrogatories include discrete subparts that may or may not be related to the original question. Because the Rule doesn't account for proportionality (the number of accused products, patent applications or infringements being considered), when challenged, it is left for the courts to decide on a case-by-case basis whether specific subparts constitute individual interrogatories. In "Court Rejects Black Letter Numerical Limit on Interrogatories," Robert J. Will advises becoming familiar with the counting methodology for a particular subject matter when challenging the numerical limits.

Bob Will advises clients on matters related to class action litigation, trust and estate litigation, professional liability, and condemnation. He is a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation, an honorary organization of lawyers, judges, and legal scholars whose careers have demonstrated outstanding dedication to the welfare of their communities and to the highest principles of the legal profession.
