This CLE webinar will guide personal injury litigators in drafting discovery requests likely to survive heightened judicial scrutiny under recent amendments to Rule 26(b) of the FRCP. The panel will also discuss tactics for objecting to discovery requests that are overly burdensome and producing documents and electronically stored information in a timely manner as required by amended Rule 34(b).

The panel will review these and other key issues:

  • When drafting discovery requests, what should personal injury counsel consider to ensure that requests meet the proportionality standard?
  • When responding to early requests for production, what is the standard for specificity for litigators’ objections?
  • What constitutes “reasonable time” for producing information?
  • How does case law establish when the burden or expense of obtaining discovery outweighs the likely benefit?
