RE: Rule 36, N.D.R.Civ.P., Requests for Admission
At the January meeting, the committee approved amendments to Rule 34 on production of documents and things. Among these amendments was a new subdivision requiring the person responding to the request to sign the response. Mr. Beehler requested that the committee consider a similar amendment to Rule 36 on requests for admission.
Attached are proposed amendments to Rule 36, adding a new subdivision (c) that would require the person responding to the request to sign the response and an attorney making objections to sign the objections.
