thomas allmanAmended civil rules for e-discovery sent to Supreme Court

The Judicial Conference of the United States has approved amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure to address e-discovery. These proposed rules were developed by the Judicial Conference’s Committee on Rules of Practice (CRP) and after extensive public hearings and submissions by the bench and bar. They will take effect at the end of 2006 unless the Supreme Court refuses to act or Congress intervenes to prevent their adoption, neither of which is expected to occur.
