Electronic Discovery in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware is addressed in the Default Standards for Discovery of Electronically Stored Information. These Default Standards were promulgated by Chief Judge Sue Robinson several years ago and very recently they were updated to reflect the recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure regarding e-discovery.

 Here is an article published this week in The Delaware Law Weekly that Kevin Brady and I co-authored to explain the recent updates to the Default Standards. Kevin was a member of the committee that formulated the original Default Standards several years ago, as well as the committee that most recently updated them.

 Parentheticaly, the Delaware Court of Chancery, at this time, has not amended its rules to specifically address e-discovery issues. Nor does the Delaware Superior Court  have specific rules analogous to the Default Standards at this time, though a committee of that court is studying the issue.
