Gray Ritter Graham attorney Don Downing will be a panelist at a December 13 event presented by the American Bar Association Section of Litigation and Duke Law School Center for Judicial Studies that addresses the key amendments to the federal discovery and case management rules. “Reinventing Case Management and Discovery Under the 2015 Civil Rules Amendments,” focuses on changes scheduled to take effect December 1, 2015, which are intended to manage litigation more efficiently and reduce the costs and delays of discovery. The St. Louis event, one of 13 to be held across the country, is aimed at judges, their law clerks and attorneys. It will feature national experts who will provide an overview of the amendments, followed by candid and interactive discussions among local judges, magistrate judges, and Downing and other local attorneys, who will examine the implications for civil discovery and case management. The seminar will be held in the Thomas F. Eagleton U.S. Courthouse Jury Assembly Room.
