(a) Discovery Motions. A party seeking a protective order, an order to compel discovery, or other relief under F.R.B.P. 7026 must attach to the motion only that portion of the deposition, interrogatory, request for document, or request for admissions that is the subject of the objection. An attachment to the motion must conform with the requirements of L.B.R. 5005-4 and any administrative order issued regarding electronic case filing.
(b) Documentation Not in Record. When discovery documentation not previously in the record is needed for appeal purposes, upon motion and order of the court, or by stipulation of counsel, the necessary discovery papers must be filed with the clerk. See Local Rule 5.4(d) of the Local Rules of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania (www.pamd.uscourts.gov).
