The party serving interrogatories, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 33, serving requests for production of documents or things, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 34, or serving requests for admission, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 36, shall provide a space after each such interrogatory, request, or admission, for the answer, response, or objection thereto. The party answering, responding, or objecting to written interrogatories, requests for production of documents or things, or requests for admission shall either set forth the answer, response, or objection in the space provided or shall quote each such interrogatory or request in full immediately preceding the statement of any answer, response, or objection thereto. Each party shall also number its interrogatories, requests, answers, responses, or objections sequentially, regardless of the number of sets of interrogatories or requests. In cases involving multiple parties, the sequential numbering required by this rule operates for each plaintiff and defendant. A separate numerical sequence shall be maintained for each discovery device and for each party from whom discovery is sought.
COMMENT: Fed. R. Civ. P. 33(a)(1) limits interrogatories to 25 without leave of court. [Stylistic amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure took effect on December 1, 2007. Pursuant to those amendments, the above reference to Fed.R.Civ.P. 33(a) was changed to Fed.R.Civ.P. 33(a)(1).] (6/2/08)
