Two Years Later: The E-Discovery Amendments


January 18, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm
In December 2015, significant amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure went into effect. They were meant to help streamline discovery and focus it on the merits of claims and defenses. The parties are now charged with working toward the “speedy, just, and inexpensive” resolution of disputes, with an emphasis on cooperation, proportionality, and an end to boilerplate objections to discovery requests. In addition, the rules for spoliation sanctions were changed significantly. Have these changes worked in practice? Our panel of experienced eDiscovery experts evaluates the progress that has been made in the past two years.
