Discovery may be carried out by directly asking a person questions (oral depositions), by sending a person written questions (interrogatories and depositions on written questions), and by requesting that the person provide documents (motions for production, subpoenas duces tecum). The person answering the questions must refuse to answer the questions or swear that the answers provided are correct to the best of his or her knowledge. If it is later determined that the person was lying, he or she may be fined or prosecuted for perjury. If a party to the lawsuit lies, the court has the authority to direct a verdict for the opposing party.
