The answer of a person possessing special knowledge on the request of a specialized Russian arbitration court for the purpose of clarification, consultation or professional opinion statement in essence of the dispute considered by relevant court is a special procedural form of specialist’s involvement in arbitration proceedings. The article explores its legal nature and substantiates the necessity of its regulatory consolidation as a special written form of specialist’s participation in civil proceedings. It is asserted that the dispatching of the court’s request and the dispatching of the judicial message due to their legal nature are different procedural actions of the arbitration court. The court’s request is delineated from the judicial message on such criteria as the procedure for performing the procedural action, the circle of addressees and the circle of dispatching bodies. It is concluded that the specialist’s refusal to respond to the court’s request is not identical to a motivated refusal to give consultation, explanation or professional opinion statement, since the former is the duty of a specialist, and the latter is his right. The author distinguishes a specialist’s response to a request of a specialized court of first instance having evidentiary value and a response to a request by a specialized court of cassation, which has the status of a special procedural document, having no evidentiary value.
