13 CFR 142.23 - Are there limits on disclosure of documents or discovery?
(a) Upon written request to the reviewing official, the defendant may review all non-privileged, relevant and material documents, records and other material related to the allegations contained in the complaint. After paying SBA a reasonable fee for duplication, the defendant may obtain a copy of the records described.
(b) Upon written request to the reviewing official, the defendant may obtain a copy of all exculpatory information in the possession of the reviewing official or investigating official relating to the allegations in the complaint. If the document would otherwise be privileged, only the portion of the document containing exculpatory information must be disclosed. As used in this section, the term “information” does not include legal materials such as statutes or case law obtained through legal research.
(c) The notice sent to the Attorney General from the reviewing official is not discoverable under any circumstances.
(d) Other discovery is available only as ordered by the ALJ and includes only those methods of discovery allowed by§ 134.213 of this chapter.
