New rules for Federal Courts take effect December 1, 2015

According to the Advisory Committee on Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the amendments are aimed at achieving the following goals:

  • Shorten time limit for serving to 90 days (from the previous limit of 120 days)
  • Improve early and active judicial case management through amendments to Rules 4(m) and 16
  • Enhance the means of keeping discovery proportional to the action through amendments to Rules 26, 30, 31, 33, 34 and 36, and
  • Encourage increased cooperation among the parties through an amendment to Rule 1.

 

Excerpt: “The proposed 2015 amendments aim to increase litigation efficiency and decrease its cost, particularly in discovery. Hopefully, the amendments’ emphasis on increased specificity in document responses and proportionality in discovery, as well as narrowing the circumstances where sanctions can be imposed, will lead to more focused and less burdensome and expensive litigation.”
