In a civil action for a violation of the Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act, information acquired through discovery and is protected from disclosure by a protective order shall remain protected, except for information that is evidence of elder or dependent adult abuse. Such information may be filed with the court and shall remain confidential under the protective order for 30 days, after which it will become part of the public court record. A party may petition for a protective order of such information upon a showing of good cause. The court may not prevent disclosure of such information unless one of the following is applicable: the information is privileged, the information is not evidence of abuse, or the party demonstrates a substantial probability that prejudice will result from the disclosure.


Any party may obtain discovery regarding any matter relevant to the pending action or to the determination of a motion in the action if the matter is admissible as evidence or reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence, unless the matter is privileged or discovery is limited by the court.


For a physical or mental exam performed in compliance with the court process (discovery, court order, etc), the demanding party has a right to the written report of the history, results, diagnoses, prognoses, and conclusions of the examiner, as well as a copy of the reports of all earlier examinations of the same condition of the examinee made by that or any other examiner.
