Extract from Michigan Lawyers Weekly's "Judges to Address Discovery Rule Changes at ACEDS Symposium"
The volume of electronic data continues to grow exponentially, and its growth has had significant ramifications for civil litigants. Liberal discovery policy coupled with the sheer volume of electronic data has increased litigation costs substantially, undermining access to the civil justice system. The recognition of these problems had already led to significant changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as well as to many other state court civil procedure rules.
On June 19, 2019, the Michigan Supreme Court adopted amendments to Michigan’s civil discovery rules, marking the broadest changes to the Michigan Court Rules since they were enacted in 1985.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
