Federal E-Discovery: FRCP Define Obligations, ESI Protocols Set Contours
April 5, 2022
Litigation partners Chris Boehning and Dan Toal’s latest Federal E-Discovery column, “FRCP Define Obligations, ESI Protocols Set Contours,” appeared in the New York Law Journal. The authors discuss a recent decision in the Southern District of New York that provides guidance concerning the appropriate interplay between protocols for the production of electronically stored information (ESI) and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP). In Raine Grp. v. Reign Capital, U.S. Magistrate Judge Katharine Parker reminded parties that although ESI protocols may set the contours of discovery, the parties’ obligations to conduct reasonable searches during discovery flow from the FRCP themselves. E-discovery counsel Ross Gotler and e-discovery attorney Lidia Kekis assisted in the preparation of this article.
