The de minimus rule in law refers to a dispute or criminal case in law where the charge is so trivial it is considered too small to be dealt with by the court. Because the dispute or crime is so minimal any communications of the court would be a waste of the courts time. For example a man kills a woman after breaking into her house. All the man has time to steal is a pen before he is confronted with the woman that he kills. Since the pen is only worth a few dollars it would waste the courts time to try the murderer for the theft of the pen.

The discovery process allows both parties to gather information on the evidence being held by the opposing party in order to prepare a better case or defense. Attorneys for the prosecution, plaintiffs, and the defense are required to disclosure all relevant facts and documents which occurs through the step by step known as discovery.

The discovery process begins with disclosure. In this beginning stage
