Submitting the Report to the Proffering Attorney

Under the rules of discovery, the proffering attorney (who has produced or subpoenaed the witness) is required to supply the results of testing to the opposing counsel. If multiple reports are generated during the course of testing in a case (which includes any preliminary, interim or amended reports), the submitting party/agency and proffering attorney should always receive the most recent information.
