Jon Noyes authored an article for the Indiana Law Review Blog published on December 18, 2014. Jon’s blog post, “Ask and You Shall Receive: Rule 36 And Its Scope Under Indiana Law” highlights Rule 36 of the Indiana Rules of Trial Procedure that states an attorney may request that an opposing party admit any matter relevant to the case and not protected by privilege. A party has thirty days to respond, and if the opposing party denies the request, then it adopts that denial. If the party fails to respond within the thirty day timeline, the matter is conclusively established and may be used as evidence at trial.
