In most jurisdictions courts do not ordinarily restrict the number of demands for production that you can make during the litigation, so the only limitation on your using a catch-all demand as your last item of discovery is that you do not make “burdensome” demands, or otherwise subject yourself to attack for adding unnecessarily to the discovery.
Our “catch-all demand” has only four categories of requests. It is designed to appear simple and straightforward (although many hours went into crafting just the right words, with no excess). This form is designed to appeal to a motions judge because it appears to be so easy for your opponent to comply with, and so sensible by not asking your opponent for anything previously produced. On its face, it shows the judge you are playing by the rules and not overreaching.
