order of examination

order of examination

n. commonly called an "OEX," an order to the losing party in a law suit requring him/her to appear in court and answer under oath questions asked by the winner's attorney in regard to the loser's financial situation. Questions include location and amount of assets, income, and bank accounts in order to find funds which can be used to pay a money judgment. An order of examination must be personally served (and not merely sent to his/her lawyer). Most courts have a regular calendar of orders of examination, swear all the answering parties to tell the truth and then direct each one to meet with the questioning attorney. Refusal to answer questions or provide financial information is contempt of court. (See: creditor's rights)
