The Legaltech News article “The Need for Continuing Federal Judiciary Education Regarding the 2015 FRCP Amendments” highlights “renowned e-discovery firm” Redgrave LLP’s recent amicus briefs on behalf of Lawyers for Civil Justice (LCJ) in support of the defendants’ petition for writ of mandamus and petition for rehearing en banc to overturn the trial court’s discovery order in In re: Actavis Holdco U.S. Inc., et al. (generic pharmaceuticals MDL) that compelled production of search terms hits without review.  

Gareth Evans is quoted in the article, stating that “the district court’s discovery order is an example of the epidemic of excessive discovery in civil litigation.  One of the hallmarks of our judicial system is that discovery is limited to relevant material.  The district court and the Third Circuit panel majority ignored that.”
