Briefly describe the scope and type(s) of discovery available (e.g., depositions, interrogatories, etc.):
Oral Argument Cases (Parts 1113 & 1114): In formal cases on the oral argument track, discovery is available as of right. The discovery in these cases is akin to that allowed in federal district court (e.g., depositions, requests for production of documents, admissions, and inspection, interrogatories).
Modified Procedures Cases (Part 1112): Most of the Board's cases are adjudicated under "modified procedures." In these cases (which are the majority of the cases before the Board), the Board may order discovery upon its own authority or upon approval of a party's request (i.e., rate cases under modified procedures).
