In their latest New York Law Journal column on Federal E-Discovery, litigation partners Christopher Boehning and Daniel Toal discuss a recent district court decision that applied the new version of Rule 26(b)(1) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The column, titled "Non-U.S. Subsidiaries' E-Discovery Is Out of Scope, Court Finds," explains the court's application of amended Rule 26(b)(1), which has established new legal standards on the scope of permissible discovery.
The decision, in addition to being a clear reminder not to use the old version of the rule, is also helpful for those involved in litigation where a party may be seeking discovery from overseas entities. E-discovery counsel Ross Gotler and e-discovery attorney Lidia Kekis assisted in the preparation of this article.
