U.S. International Trade Commission Adopts e-Discovery Rules
The U.S. International Trade Commission has adopted “final rules related to its e-discovery practices.” “The new rules will be effective 30 days after publication in the Federal Register and are applicable to investigations instituted 30 days after publication in the Federal Register”—a Federal Register notice was issued on May 15, 2013.
The newly adopted rules address issues including the discovery of inaccessible information and limitations to discovery similar to those found in Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(b)(2)(C). The newly adopted rules also add new provisions addressing privileged information and work product, including requiring the production of privilege logs and providing procedures for addressing the inadvertent production of privileged materials.
