New Differences in E-Discovery Between Georgia, Federal and State Courts

February 23, 2016

The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure were revised in December 2015 in a number of important ways relating to e-Discovery. These changes, however, have not been adopted for the Georgia Code of Civil Procedure. As a result, the e-Discovery rules now differ between federal and state courts in Georgia in several critical areas that may significantly affect the scope of e-Discovery, the costs of e-Discovery, and possibly the outcome at trial. The revisions include changes to the proportionality on the scope of electronic discovery; the burden of collecting, reviewing and producing electronic discovery; and an adverse interest if electronic discovery is lost or deleted. Practitioners in both federal and state courts should understand these new changes regardless of the size or type of case. The webinar will explore both the legal aspects of these differences in the rules, as well as the practical and technical impacts on e-Discovery strategies and tools.

The program will feature:
