The Story Behind Delaware’s Default Discovery Standard
Delaware has had default e-discovery standards since May 2004. LTN’s December 20, 2011 article Delaware's Default E-Discovery Developments, reported Delaware’s 2001 update to the standards.
One of the most significant additions to the 2011 Standard is an explicit proportionality provision. Other changes were designed to make the FRCP 26(f) conferences more productive. Today’s LTN post, The Story Behind the Delaware Default Discovery Standard, provides a look into the process and philosophy that led to these latest revisions.
