Two basic concepts relating to discovery: our need as pro se defendants to serve our discovery first and quickly (not necessarily the same things, as debt plaintiffs often don’t serve discovery at all). And to understand that our case requires that we prove certain things, while we need to know other things in order to defend against their case. Again, the idea may be obvious, but you must separate our case and their case analytically in order to understand exactly what you need for the case.
