Effective July 1, 2018

New Rules of Civil Procedure are taking effect in Arizona on July 1, 2018. The new Rules will change how discovery works in civil litigation in the state. Here is a sneak peek at the changes that will impact your file handling the most:

Tiered Discovery

  • How much discovery is allowed in a case will now depend on the amount and type of relief sought
  • Cases will be assigned to one of three tiers
  • Parties can agree on a tier assignment, the court can assign a tier, or a tier can be assigned based on the amount of damages, or a combination of monetary and non-monetary damages
