Comments on Proposed Rules Amendments (Rules 26, 34, and 37)


Mintz Levin compliments the Committee and supports the proposed amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure because, on balance, the proposals seek to reduce the costs of discovery and litigation of document preservation issues while at the same time providing some degree of national uniformity. Over the past several years, concerns about these issues have created increasingly high barriers to an efficient process for litigating disputes.

While we generally support the proposed amendments, we have some suggestions on how the currently proposed amendments could be further clarified and i mproved. We are also providing specific responses to some of the questions promulgated by the Committee for public comment.
