Most lawyers know that amendments were recently enacted to the discovery provisions of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and much of the commentary on the amendments has taken the position that they will cure all of the present ills afflicting the discovery process.
However, despite many useful improvements, the recent rule changes will have little to no effect on the manner in which discovery is conducted today without a corresponding change in discovery culture. For such a culture change to occur, lawyers must spearhead changes within their organizational clients that can ultimately lead to reduced costs, speedier resolutions, and better traction in court.
