On Feb. 13, Gordon & Rees Austin partner Jeffrey Lilly published an article in Texas Lawyer titled "Proposed E-Discovery Amendments Are Only the First Step," regarding the new federal e-discovery rules pending approval by the United States Supreme Court.
The article focused on the intent of the new rules, as well as potential issues of which litigators should be aware. Lilly writes “The proposed amendments are a positive step, but until there are consistent rules and application in all courts, thereby blunting the "gotcha" tactics, it is only the first of many steps needed to allow for reasonable document management policies.”
Lilly is a partner in the Austin office and a member of the firm's Drug and Medical Device practice group. He is also co-chair of the firm's E-discovery practice group and is chair of a task force comprised of members of IADC, FDCC, DRI and ADTA which advocates for reasonable e-discovery rules and the application and interpretation of same.
