Proposed Revisions to Guidelines and Practices for Implementing the 2015 Discovery Amendments to Achieve Proportionality

The months of experience with the amendments, and the information and insights the reporters and lawyers who drafted the Guidelines and Practices gathered from working with and talking to lawyers and judges in 17 cities across the country, have provided a basis for refinements, clarifications, and additions that are helpful, timely, and need not be delayed until our later comprehensive review a few years from now. The proposed changes in the attached revised Guidelines and Practices account for these experiences and new case law, but do not significantly alter the substance of the document.
