The scope of the examination for discovery is broad and, generally, a person examined for discovery must answer, to the best of his knowledge, information and belief, any proper questions relevant to any matter in issue in the proceeding.
A party cannot object to a question on the ground that:
- the information sought is evidence or hearsay;
- the question constitutes cross-examination, unless the question is directed solely to the credibility of the witness; or
- the question constitutes cross-examination on the affidavit of documents of the party being examined.
