i am a co-plaintiff in a civil suit against our former landlord in arizona. (it had been a small claims case, but they transferred it to civil court.) we have already filed our disclosure statement, including all relevant documents, photographs, etc.
recently, the defendant's lawyer sent us a copy of their disclosure statement, which contained a letter supposedly sent to us from the property manager, which we absolutely know is fabricated, and can prove it. we are aware that most of these cases are determined by credibility of the parties involved, and we wish to use this proof to discredit the witness (prop mgr) for the defense in court. are we required to submit our supporting documents ahead of time, as a continuation of disclosure? (the letter was dated jan. 1; in it, mgr refers to a phone call made by us,which did not happen until jan. 8; we wish to access phone records and submit them as evidence of the fabrication of evidence on the part of the defense...is this acceptable?)

thank you in advance for your consideration.
