Judge Grimm's Revised Discovery Order Expands Definition of Proportionality, Includes Technology Assisted Review

Senior Director

We previously shared Judge Paul W. Grimm's standard Discovery Order, which we recommend to state and federal court judges alike as a model and inspiration to manage the pretrial discovery process so as to reduce the cost and burden of discovery. Judge Grimm has made some revisions to his Order, including expanding the definition of proportionality and making reference to the possible use of Technology Assisted Review as a means to keep costs down. Judge Grimm has graciously allowed us to share this revised version of his Discovery Order, and we encourage judges, attorneys, and academics alike to take a look at what continues to be an excellent, and up-to-date, model for keeping discovery proportional.
