RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

New Federal Rule on Experts Takes Effect December 1


by Robert Ambrogi

 



Bullseye: November 2010
IMS ExpertServices™ is the legal industry's premier full-service expert witness provider.


A major revision to Rule 26 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure takes effect Dec. 1, bringing about a significant change in the long-standing procedure governing expert witness reports.

No longer will Rule 26 require full discovery of draft expert reports and broad disclosure of any communications between an expert and trial counsel, as has been the case ever since the rule's revision in 1993.

Bob Ambrogi, IMS ExpertServices
Robert J. Ambrogi
is a Massachusetts lawyer who represents clients at the intersection of law, media and technology. A news media veteran, he is the only person ever to hold the top editorial positions at the two leading national U.S. legal newspapers, the National Law Journal and Lawyers Weekly USA. He is also internationally known for his writing and blogging about the Internet and technology.
Instead, those communications will now come under the protection of the work-product doctrine. The new rule will prohibit discovery of draft expert reports and limit discovery of attorney-expert communications. Still allowed will be full discovery of the expert's opinions and of the facts or data used to support them.

The rule was approved by the U.S. Judicial Conference in September 2009. The Supreme Court approved the change to the rule in April of 2010 and submitted it to Congress. By law, if Congress takes no action to reject, modify or defer the proposed rule, it takes effect on Dec. 1.

John K. Rabiej, attorney advisor on court rules to the Judicial Conference, confirmed that Congress has taken no action and that the rule will take effect on Dec. 1.
