Phase Two of Seventh Circuit Electronic Discovery Pilot Program Extended to May 2012
The second phase of the Seventh Circuit’s Electronic Discovery Pilot Program, previously scheduled to end this month, has been extended to May 2012, according to the Interim Report on Phase Two. According to the interim report, the decision to extend the program was made “early in Phase Two” to “allow a fuller evaluation of the Principles’s application.” Moreover, the original principles of the program were revised “in response to the Phase One survey results” and Phase Two Principles were promulgated on August 1, 2010, to be applied for the duration of Phase Two. Specifically, the revisions affected principles 2.01 (Duty to Meet and Confer on Discovery and to Identify Disputes for Early Resolution) and 2.06 (Production Format) and are available for review in the interim report on the program’s new website, www.discoverypilot.com.
A copy of the Interim Report on Phase Two is also available here.
