Discovery, small claims[edit]

An IP user removed references to the use in "discovery" and in "small claims courts." I think this is not a glaring error. Can anyone find any citations to such usage? Bearian (talk) 00:41, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Discovery is a technical term used in English legal practice that is now used to mean the provision of copies of documents (or in some cases the documents themselves) to another party to litigation. The allocation questionnaire is not a form of provision of document in that sense. There is no such thing as a small claim court in England and Wales, though the term is often used loosely to the county court using the small claims track, there is a big difference in reality. You can't chose the small claims track and anything that happens before allocation (and much can) will not be on that track and so not subject to things like the no costs rule or the right to have a lay representative. I've known people get a big shock from that. There is absolutely no such thing as a District Court. No idea where that came from. Francis Davey (talk) 17:44, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
