New eDiscovery Federal Rules Changes – On-Demand

Hosted By: Clear Law Institute

On December 1, 2015 a brand new set of eDiscovery-related amendments will take effect. These amendments will change the scope of discovery and create an entirely new rule for ESI spoliation (non-preservation) sanctions. In this practical webinar, y​ou’ll learn, among other things, answers to the following questions:

  • How you can use the new FRCP 37(e) to defeat your adversary’s spoliation accusations and sanctions requests?
  • Who should strongly consider a privilege claw-back stipulation in light of FRE 502?
  • How will FRCP 26’s new proportionality clause impact the traditional scope-of-discovery definition?
  • Where in the amendments are non-ESI-centric changes?
  • When in a lawsuit will new timing rules kick in and put more “meat” in FRCP 26(f) “meet and confer”?
  • Why do the amendments leave some practicalities unaddressed?
