2014 Amendments to the Massachusetts Rules of Civil Procedure: What You Need to Know

Wednesday, January 29, 2014 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

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 obligations;
  • Added protections for inadvertently produced information;
  • 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.
