My good friend, Attorney Mark Chalos recently wrote about the proposed changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. His blog post is a must read. Take three minutes and let your legislators know that you opposed these rule changes:
From his post:
Opponents argue that the data establish that the present 10 deposition limit and the current number of other allowable discovery requests are working well in practice and changes are unnecessary. Some opponents suggest that further discovery restrictions discovery would be unfair to claimants who have the ultimate burden of proof in the litigation. Moreover, interrogatories and requests for admissions provide low cost means for discovering information and narrowing issues for trials and, therefore, new limitations of these mechanisms would provide little or no cost-savings.
