See how the new rules are impacting case law — and apply those insights to support your e-discovery success for 2017.
Be sure to get the new E-Discovery Case Law Summaries: 2017 Winter volume from Zapproved. It reveals the latest trends in applying the new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure to address cases involving preservation and discovery missteps.
Dig in to learn what e-discovery pitfalls to avoid and how the courts are bringing issues of proportionality, cooperation and preservation to the forefront. These rulings reflect more nuance in curing prejudice, such as ordering ‘measures no greater than necessary’ and awarding attorney fees and permissive jury instructions.
