Proposed amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure were approved by the Judicial Conference in September and will take effect on December 1, 2015 if the Supreme Court and Congress do not intervene. These amendments include changes to the definition of the scope of discovery in Rule 26(b)(1) and the applicable standard courts should apply when considering sanctions for ESI spoliation under Rule 37(e). This panel will explore the expansive effects of these amendments.
