The End of Sanctions? Revisions to the Federal Rules and the Derisking of Discovery
Following the 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the amount of cases involving spoliation sanctions has plummeted. Today, cases involving discovery sanctions are only one third as common as they were during their peak in 2011 and 2012.
Are we seeing the end of sanctions? And if so, what effects is this having on the legal practice?
Join Logikcull and eDiscovery experts Craig Ball and Mira Edelman as we explore these topics, including a review of extensive new research on eDiscovery sanctions post-2015, key case laws, and emerging corporate discovery trends.
