The U.S. Supreme Court approved this week amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which also include specific changes that address electronic discovery issues. See the link to the complete rules from the Electronic Discovery Blog.
I have written about electronic discovery elsewhere on this blog, for example here. A recent Delaware decision, download file, imposing penalties for “unintentional” deletion of data relevant to a lawsuit is a good reminder of the need for litigators to be up to date on these developments.
