David Herr will chair Minnesota CLE's 2017 Civil Litigator's Annual Short Course on February 22, 2017. David will begin the half-day seminar with a presentation titled, "New Minnesota & Federal Rules – Including a New Timing Rule," which will discuss recent changes to the Minnesota Civil Rules, General Rules of Practice, and Rules of Civil Appellate Procedure as well as their federal counterparts, including a federal timing change regarding electronically served discovery.
David will also moderate a session titled "The Realized Effects of the New Discovery Rules & How Strategy and Practice Are Changing" covering significant changes to the federal discovery rules that went into effect December 2015. The panelists will discuss how federal courts have been interpreting the discovery changes over this past year; how Minnesota state courts have interpreted the proportionality requirement as it applies to discovery; and how litigators have changed strategy and practice (or not) in light of the changes.
