In other discovery news

Always wanted to write that...

Anyway, as anticipated and following up on the legislation mentioned immediately below, there's a new report out on the costs and time involved in litigation due to e-discovery. From the ABA Journal:

Updated: The civil justice system in the United States is so bogged down in a "morass" of e-discovery that it is often too expensive for litigants to take their cases to trial, according to a survey of trial lawyers.

Now the next step is to fix this increasingly dysfunctional system, according to a press release about an interim report (PDF) on the survey, which is a joint project of the American College of Trial Lawyers and the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System (IAALS).
