Florida's E-Discovery Amendments Now in Effect

September 25, 2012

The Florida Supreme Court has recently amended its Rules of Civil Procedure to address the discovery of electronically stored information (ESI). These amendments became effective September 1, 2012.

While the amendments parallel similar e-discovery provisions in the Federal Rules, Florida's Rules vary slightly to provide more flexibility. For details on these effective changes, see Florida: Rules of Civil Procedure Addressing Electronic Discovery.
