Electronic Discovery Law
Western District of Washington Amends Local Rules
On December 1, 2012, newly amended rules went into effect in the Western District of Washington, including rules addressing electronic discovery. Notably, the new rules now require that parties contemplating discovery of electronically stored information consider adopting the newly promulgated Model Agreement Regarding Discovery of Electronically Stored Information in Civil Litigation—a fairly comprehensive order addressing many aspects of electronic discovery. Many other amendments were also adopted.
