State Court Initial Disclosures

Do the 12 O.S. 3226 initial disclosures need to be filed or merely exchanged?

Answer: The language of the statute - 12 O.S. 2010 Supp. 3226(A)(2)(a) leads me to believe it is disclosed but not filed. It reads: "a. Except in categories of proceedings specified in subparagraph b of this paragraph, or to the extent otherwise stipulated or directed by order, a party, without awaiting a discovery request, shall provide to other parties a computation of any category of damages claimed by the disclosing party, making available for inspection and copying the documents or other evidentiary material, not privileged or protected from disclosure, on which such computation is based, including materials bearing on the nature and extent of injuries suffered." That’s what we do.
