We Join the Debate

The Federal Litigation Section has joined the debate over proposed amendments to the discovery provisions of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Together with the FBA’s Executive Director, the section’s Governing Board submitted comments on behalf of the Federal Bar Association to the Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure of the Judicial Conference of the United States. The FBA supports the proposed amendment of Rule 37(e) of the Fed. R. Civ. P. concerning preservation of evidence and sanctions for spoliation. The FBA opposes amendments that would add new presumed limits on depositions, interrogatories and requests for admissions.

The comments were based upon analysis conducted by the section’s Committee on Federal Rules of Procedure and Trial Practice, led by committee chair John G. McCarthy and vice-chair Michael Zuckerman. Many members of the section as well as the Government Relations Committee of the FBA contributed to the analysis.

I encourage you to join the section and to get involved with any of its five standing committees. Please contact one of our section leaders to learn more.
