Advisory Committee Recommends New Rules for Electronic Discovery

Posted in FEDERAL RULES AMENDMENTS

In April 2004, the U.S. Judicial Conference Advisory Committee on Civil Rules submitted to the Standing Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure several proposed amendments to the Federal Civil Rules specifically addressing the unique challenges of electronic discovery, recommending that the Standing Committee publish these proposals for comment in August 2004. The proposed rules mark the culmination of several years of work by the Advisory Committee and its Discovery Subcommittee examining the issue of whether and how the civil rules should be amended to specifically address electronic discovery issues.
