Request for Admission Law and Legal Definition

A party can provide a written request to admit the facts, the application of law to fact, or opinions about either; and the genuineness of any described documents. Generally, a request to admit the genuineness of a document must be accompanied by a copy of the document. If a matter is not admitted, the answer must specifically deny it or state in detail why the answering party cannot truthfully admit or deny it. Requests for admissions are part of the discovery process in a civil case. [USCS Fed Rules Civ Proc R 36]
