inspect/inspection
When a party formally discloses a document in civil proceedings, by stating that it exists or has existed, his opponent has the right to inspect the document, unless the disclosing party claims a right or duty to withhold inspection. Inspection means physically looking at the original document, calling for a copy and agreeing to pay the supplying party's reasonable copying costs, or both physically inspecting and then seeking copies of some or all of that material.
