The military's discovery and production rules are fairly simple — if you can distinguish one from the other, which is not always an easy task. This article provides military practitioners with a set of tools for recognizing the differences between discovery and production rules. These tools are then applied to the 2009 term of military appellate cases which focused on discovery and production issues in order to illustrate whether the parties, the military judges, and the courts used sound reasoning in dealing with these issues.
