In this article, Jenner & Block Partner Timothy J. Chorvat examines amendments to e-discovery rules that took effect in Illinois on July 1, 2014.  Tim explains that the amendments strengthen protections against disproportionate discovery requests and update an obsolete provision that required litigants to produce computerized information in printed form.  He reviews the changes and discusses their significance, ultimately concluding that the 2014 amendments “represent an important step in updating Illinois law to reflect ongoing developments in technology and legal practice.”
