    There is little control by the court over discovery period. Nothing applied the same way twice in my experience. Too much is left to the discretion of the sitting Judge. Insurance companies are allowed to play their games for years with no time limits much to the dismay of the injured. There is no consistency anywhere. It's like rolling the dice and hoping the prosecutor and Judge are in a good mood. This is not what our Constitution was written for.
