On Dec. 1, electronic-discovery amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure will take effect and change forever how civil cases are litigated. In this week’s legal-affairs podcast Coast to Coast, we discuss the new rules and their impact on lawyers and litigants. Joining my co-host J.Craig Williams and me to provide their insights are two e-discovery experts: Michele C.S. Lange, staff attorney in the Electronic Evidence Services group at Kroll Ontrack Inc. and author of the ABA book, Electronic Evidence and Discovery: What Every Lawyer Should Know, and Dennis Kennedy, well-known lawyer and legal technology consultant based in St. Louis, Mo.
