MD Rules, T. 2, Refs & Annos
The following forms have been prepared to facilitate the exchange of meaningful information with a minimum of controversy. They are designed to be appropriate in a large percentage of cases, and the Committee encourages their use. In the context of some cases, however, they may be overly burdensome or otherwise inappropriate. The forms are not designed to limit the parties' right to frame their own interrogatories.
Rule 2-421(a) provides that each form interrogatory contained in the appendix to these rules shall count as a single interrogatory even though some of the interrogatories, were it not for the rule, might constitute more than a single interrogatory for counting purposes. While use of the form interrogatories contained in this appendix may provide a safe harbor from the counting rules, that protection may be lost if any change is made to the interrogatory or in any of the instructions or definitions contained in this appendix.
It is suggested that when a form contained in this appendix is being used, that fact should be indicated in a parenthetical reference at the end of the form so that opposing counsel and the court may be aware that a form interrogatory is being used.
Adopted January 18, 1996, effective July 1, 1984.
