NYSBA Forms Special Committee on Discovery and Case Management in Federal Litigation


The Special Committee on Discovery and Case Management in Federal Litigation was established to examine the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and local rules of courts and judges that address discovery and case management in litigation in federal court and to make recommendations as to rule amendments, if any, that concern those topics.

The Committee is also to make recommendations as to the need for rules, if any, that, inter alia, address preservation of documents needed for litigation. In doing so, the Committee will consider all relevant topics relating to discovery and inspection, including, but not limited to (a) the impact of increasing electronic communications and electronically stored information ("ESI"), (b) the length of time litigation takes, (c) costs, (d) the definition of "relevancy", and (e) appropriate use of court resources.

If you have any suggestions for the Committee, please contact Heath Szymczak.
