The January Lit Alerts summarized the proposed changes to Rule 37(e) relating to electronic discovery. The public comment period for the proposed changes to the Federal Rules, including Rule 37(e), closed on February 15 and over 2,250 comments were received. On February 14, 2014, 309 corporate entities submitted a letter to the Advisory Committee on Civil Rules praising certain proposed changes to address “the burdens of both over-preservations and overboard discovery.” For Rule 37(e), the entities suggested that the proposed change should be revised to “clarify that an award of sanctions requires a showing of specific intent to deprive another party of discoverable information, and that the threshold for ‘curative measures’ requires a showing of specific prejudice to a party to the litigation.”
