Federal E-Discovery: Court Opens Dangerous Door to Compulsory 'Quick Peek'

April 7, 2015 read the article

Litigation partners Christopher Boehning and Daniel Toal's Federal E-discovery column appeared in the April 7 issue of the New York Law Journal. The article, "Court Opens Dangerous Door to Compulsory 'Quick Peek,'" discusses "quick peek" agreements under FRE 502(d), which can be used to expedite discovery because parties can reduce the amount of privilege review undertaken, secure in the knowledge that any privileged documents must be returned to the producing party without objection. The article cautions, however, that courts should refrain from imposing "quick peek" agreements that essentially preclude privilege review as a means to expedite discovery. E-discovery counsel Ross Gotler and litigation associate William O'Neil assisted in the preparation of this article.
