Praising LCJ's Efforts – A Commercial Litigator's Perspective
The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel
November 7, 2008
Richard Donovan discussed the Lawyers for Civil Justice's (LCJ) successful endeavor to reform the Federal Rule of Evidence 502, which will cut litigation costs and clarify the treatment of privileged materials inadvertently disclosed in court or during discovery. The article also discusses LCJ's other efforts to improve civil justice rules such as Rule 26, which permits the discovery of written communication between lawyers and expert witnesses; the Federal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act of 2008; and the "Daubert movement" that deals with the qualifications of a witness.
