My friend has been in prison for 14 years and has 4 left. She had 2 sentences box-card for robbery. Im trying to have her case re-opened but the clerk of court is telling me there is no motion of discovery, I thought it was required to have a motion of discovery because this shows proof of evidence. I dont understand. I know I will be getting a lawyer but im just trying to figure out if I have a bases here with there being no motion of discovery.

Get an attorney, you might be mixing up certain types of actions. In any event, if she was convicted, there are very limited causes to "reopen" a case. The proper method is to appeal, which should have happened over a decade ago.
