Electronic Discovery Law
Virginia Supreme Court Seeking Public Comment on Proposed E-Discovery Amendments
The Virginia Supreme Court's Advisory Committee on Rules of Court has unanimously concluded that it should publish a Tentative Draft of possible rules amendments on the topic of electronic discovery. The Tentative Draft takes into account the detailed comments on an initial discussion draft circulated several months ago. It is the Advisory Committee's plan to consider these draft rules at its April, 2008 meeting and to discuss all comments and suggestions received concerning the structure and content of the proposed provisions.
If approved by the Advisory Committee, the rules proposals would be recommended to the Judicial Council of Virginia and the Supreme Court, which will decide whether the rules should be approved and promulgated as Rules of Court.
Comments on the Tentative Draft should be sent by March 15, 2008 to:
Karl R. Hade, Executive Secretary
Supreme Court of Virginia

Richmond, VA 23219
