12508. Objecting to Discovery; Waiver of Objection
(a) If a party objects to producing any document described in Document Production Lists 1 or 2 or any document or information requested under Rule 12507, it must specifically identify which document or requested information it is objecting to and why. Objections must be in writing, and must be served on all other parties. Parties must produce all applicable listed documents, or other requested documents or information not specified in the objection by serving the requested documents or information under Rule 12300.
(b) Any objection not made within the required time is waived unless the panel determines that the party had substantial justification for failing to make the objection within the required time.
(c) In making any rulings on objections, arbitrators may consider the relevance of documents or discovery requests and the relevant costs and burdens to parties to produce this information.
