Federal Court and Agency E-Discovery Rules and Guidelines


With the increased importance of e-discovery in litigation and investigations, many federal district courts and government agencies have enacted specific rules, forms, or other guidance addressing the discovery of electronically stored information (ESI) and governing the conduct of practitioners as it relates to ESI. To help you keep informed of these rules, regulations, and guidelines as you litigate, Crowell & Moring's E-Discovery and Information Management group has compiled a collection of websites for rules, forms, and guidelines -- from both federal courts and government agencies -- by jurisdiction and/or agency. 

You can find these rules here or at the EDIM group's blog. Please keep in mind that individual judges or agencies may have enacted their own specific or preferred protocols (such as through standing orders) relating to e-discovery that may not be included among the web pages we have compiled.

For more information, please contact the professional(s) listed below, or your regular Crowell & Moring contact.
