Except as provided by this
rule, discovery materials, including disclosure of expert testimony, shall not
be filed with the court. The party serving the discovery materials or taking
the deposition shall retain the original and be custodian of it. The court, on
its own motion, on motion of any party, or on application by a non-party, may
require the filing of any discovery materials or may make provisions for a
person to obtain a copy at that person’s own expense.
Where discovery materials are
offered into evidence as an exhibit, the attorney producing them will retain
them unless the court orders them deposited with the clerk. Where the court
orders them deposited, they will be treated as exhibits subject to the
provisions of LR79.1.
