It has been two and a half years since the last e-discovery amendments to the Federal Rules and 6 years since the proportionality amendments to the Pennsylvania rules. How has discovery practice adapted to those changes in Pennsylvania and Federal state court? Some trends have begun to emerge and coalesce.
The principles of proportionality and transparency have continued to gain traction, in an effort to respond to ever-increasing data volumes and the proliferation of discoverable data sources. Overbroad discovery and boilerplate objections are no longer tolerated by many courts, while other strategic and sanction traps remain, despite efforts to cut down on tactical use of sanctions motions.
Join PBI for this webinar discussing these developing trends, effective strategies for dealing with them, and a review of some of the most influential recent e-discovery decisions in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.
