Abstract

This article argues that interlocutory review of discovery orders can allow error correction and the development of a coherent body of case law without burdening the appellate courts. It uses an empirical study of interlocutory review in Texas as an example of how such a system could work.

Keywords: discovery, appeal, review, mandamus
