Requests for admissions "can provide a good avenue in which to firmly establish undisputed facts at trial," says Keith Lee in his post at Associate's Mind.
Titled "How to Write (Better) Requests for Admission," Lee's post is a welcome primer on an often-misunderstood topic. As Lee notes--
Requests for Admissions are sort of the red-headed stepchild of the discovery process. Interrogatories and Requests for Production get all the attention in law school and CLEs, while poor Requests for Admissions (RFAs) sit in the corner, never asked to dance.
After explaining the basics, Lee writes some sample requests for admission based on an imagined defamation case. Lee concludes, "Take the time to look for discovery guides in your jurisdiction that provide instructions and advice on how to maximize your use of RFAs."
