[Session 8] The Verdict on Change: Judging the Effectiveness of the 2015 Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure

Date: 
Friday, October 25, 2019 - 9:30am to 11:00am
Panel Description: 

The earlier two “Case Law Review” panels discussed whether the objectives of the 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure have been achieved, especially when it comes to cooperation, proportionality, spoliation, and sanctions. But the last word on these and related eDiscovery topics often comes from the bench. A highlight of every WG1 meeting, please join this panel of distinguished jurists as they share their own experiences and perspectives on the effectiveness of the 2015 amendments, how the presentment and resolution of eDiscovery disputes has evolved, how lawyers can satisfy their ethical obligations when it comes to eDiscovery, and what else might be done to make civil discovery more “just, speedy, and inexpensive.”
