Relax. California Shelved Its E-Discovery Procedural Rule Changes.

Federal Courts, However, Have Enacted The New Rules

MIPTC may be out there on the cutting edge of technology, but California lawyers needn't worry about new E-discovery rules unless they're practicing in federal court, which adopted new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure on E-discovery on December 1, 2006, now over a month ago.

California, however, proposed new E-discovery rules last summer, and then shelved them, according to the Judicial Council, despite what one lawyer thinks.  Although Richard Siebolt's article (last link) says California E-discovery rules go into effect on January 1, 2007, they don't.  Even so, here's your chance to vote on California's proposed changes to California Rules of Court, Rule 212.

It makes for a hodge-podge of a practice for those of us who practice in both places, but that's the nature of law.  We get to follow 15,000 different procedural rules, and have them all memorized.
