Q: Is it legal for me to submit an email conversation, that occurred between two other parties, in a request to produce?
Email conversation occurred between my ex (person 1) and a girl I was dating (person2).
I am in discovery phase with person 1. It is a modification of custody case.
Person 2 forwarded me the emails. With permission to use them. Person 2 also indicated in the emails, to person 1, that she would be sending me the emails as they occurred.
The emails contained text messages and video recordings (sexual) that were originally sent from me to person 1, and that person 1 then shared, without my permission, to person 2
A: Show the documents to your attorney. After looking at what you have, they will be able to tell you if the emails are responsive to the discovery question.
