The Massachusetts Rules of Civil Procedure
have been amended effective January 1, 2014 to incorporate new provisions, most
of which pertain to handling electronic discovery. Join us for a lively
discussion about these amendments, which include:
Changes to parties’ meet and confer
Added protections for inadvertently produced
Clarification of parties’ duties when producing
electronically stored information; and
A new safe harbor with respect to
electronically stored information that is lost.
We will consider how these amendments affect your
practice, compare to the corresponding Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and
modify pre-existing best practices.
