Proportionality is Technology: The New Rules Analyzed Through the Eyes of Biomet

This webcast is available to ACEDS members only. If you would like to join ACEDS, you can do so here.

The amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure will likely take effect in December 2015. Once again they take aim at excessive discovery, with a renewed emphasis on proportionality. The definition of relevance now takes into account proportionality principles that effectively define the scope of discovery. But what is the practical effect of this change in the definition of relevancy? While competency requirements remain intact, rapid changes in technology have re-defined the contours of this requirement. Maneuvering through the new technological landscape requires skillful analysis of new approaches for data reduction while developing capabilities of locating relevant information quickly. The concept of “big data” cannot be reasonably considered without reference to technology, and engaging third parties now requires a level of expertise previously unknown to the legal profession. If Biomet was decided against the backdrop of these new amendments, would the same discovery process be acceptable, and would the court’s analysis be the same? Join us on January 23rd to explore “Biomet: The Next Generation.”

The 2014 eDiscovery Cases You Need to Know: Lessons and Best Practices from a Pivotal Year

With the New Year now upon us, it is worth reflecting on some of the key eDiscovery developments that occurred during 2014. While legislative, regulatory and rulemaking bodies undoubtedly impacted eDiscovery, the judiciary once again played a dramatic role. There are several lessons from the top 2014 court cases that, if followed, will likely help organizations reduce the costs and risks associated with discovery. These cases also spotlight the expectations that courts will likely have for organizations in 2015 and beyond.
