Litigation Alert: Business Litigation Session “Pilot Project” To Reduce Spiraling Discovery Costs Takes Flight


In response to the growing burden that the discovery of electronically stored information (ESI) has placed on corporate litigants, the Massachusetts Superior Court’s Business Litigation Session (BLS) has implemented a voluntary Pilot Project intended to reduce discovery costs and streamline the discovery process, especially with respect to ESI. Parties may elect to participate in the Pilot Project in all cases filed in the BLS between January 4 and December 31, 2010 and in all BLS cases with a Case Management Conference scheduled during that time period. Participants in the Pilot Project will be asked to provide feedback so that the Pilot Project’s efficacy may be analyzed, evaluated, and refined for future use.
