Presented by Today’s General Counsel, this annual series is well attended by in-house counsel and corporate information governance professionals and provides a series of in-depth round-table discussions with attendees and moderators jointly developing practical solutions to complex eDiscovery and Information Governance issues.
Scott Carlson will moderate discussion on the “2015 FRCP Amendments in Practice.” This discussion will address some of the numerous changes that have occurred since the 2015 amendments of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. How are we handling the heightened specificity now required in discovery responses? During this hour long conversation, corporate decision makers and industry experts will tackle dozens of issues that have arose post amendments and discuss practical solutions.
Jay Carle will lead discussion on “Proportionality – Sea Change or Minor Tweak?” examining the effect and use of proportionality in shaping the scope of electronic discovery in litigation. With the amendments to FRCP rule 26 (b)(1), has the discovery dispute process become front loaded? Can proportionality be achieved without transparency? Has the revised description of discovery scope helped, or is Oppenheimer still the standard? Expect a stirring conversation of these questions and practical solutions during this hour long discussion.
