Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(g): An Attorney's Duties When Propounding Discovery (Non-member)

  • Image 1

Product Description

Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(g) has been around since 1983 but is little known and used today. It creates a duty on the part of a party propounding discovery to ensure that the requests are not unreasonable and unduly burdensome in proportion to the needs of the case at hand. Rather than spending time preparing extensive objection to such overly broad requests, parties receiving oppressive discovery can seek a protective order compelling the propounding party to rewrite its discovery. Dealing with these issues prior to answering can help avoid “first offer” discovery responses that provide nothing of substance and the inevitable costly back and forth arguments over what is the proper scope of discovery. This session will address both common issues that make discovery overly broad and burdensome, meet and confer obligations over the issue, and when to apply to the court for a protective order.
