18 months after the adoption of changes to the California Code of Civil Procedure (CCP), how are attorneys, law firms, and service providers and clients coping with the increased burden these changes create? Specifically, the changes to CCP Section 2031.280(a), which eliminated the option to produce documents as they were kept in the usual course of business. Is anyone opting into the provisions of CCP Section 2016.090, the new optional FRCP Rule 26 analogue? What case law has been generated so far on these new provisions, if any? Has anyone received the new $250 document production sanction? Was it reportable?
This program will cover how certain law firms and service providers are dealing with these new hurdles when handling eDiscovery in cases under California law.
Topics covered include court decisions addressing:
- Do these changes really “provide more streamlined and responsive document production(s)?”
- Not slight at all -- the additional burdens far exceed “the slight expense of the producing parties”, as contemplated by the state assembly.
- Or, do these changes dramatically drive up costs for all parties…
- New $250 sanctions, is anyone asking?
- Why does opting into the provisions of CCP Section 2016.090 make sense? Will that reduce some of these new costs?
