I am sharing an article by my Sands Anderson associate, Broderick Dunn, to give you an overview of the recent federal rules changes regarding computation of time in filings, responses and discovery. This article is an edited version of Broderick’s article appearing in the Virginia Bar Association Young Lawyers Division’s Docket Call Electronic Newsletter, Winter 2010.

Please see full article below for more information.
