The Texas Supreme Court confirmed the standards for discovery requests:

  1. Generally, discovery is permitted regarding any matter that is not privileged and is relevant to the subject matter involved in the lawsuit including information that is inadmissible at trial but is reasonably calculated to lead to admissible evidence;
  2. The purpose of discovery is to decide disputes on what the facts reveal and not on what facts are concealed;
  3. The rules must be liberally construed to allow the litigants to obtain the fullest knowledge of the facts and the issues prior to trial; and
  4. Discovery is also subject to a “proportionality overlay” requiring courts to impose reasonable limits particularly when the burden or expense of the discovery outweighs its likely benefit.
