Tyler J. Anderson to Present “The Trend Toward Proportionality in Discovery” at the 2017 Idaho State Bar Annual Meeting

Moffatt Thomas attorney Tyler J. Anderson will lead a panel discussion on “The Trend Toward Proportionality in Discovery” at the 2017 Idaho State Bar Annual Meeting on July 13, 2017. This CLE is co-sponsored by the Idaho State Bar sections on Employment & Labor Law and Litigation.

The CLE will cover recent updates on proportionality requirements for discovery under federal rules enacted in December of 2015, and will discuss Idaho’s adoption of proportionality limitations for discovery. This presentation will identify the policies and reasoning behind proportionality requirements and how those requirements can impact changes in litigation case management and conducting discovery. Presenters will share ideas for best practices in addition to their personal experiences with regard to raising proportionality arguments.

The Idaho State Bar Annual Meeting is a statewide event that offers members of the ISB opportunities to expand their knowledge base through offered CLE programs, and allows them to discover newfound inspiration and benefit from networking opportunities.  The 2017 Annual Meeting will be July 12-14 at the Best Western Plus University Inn in Moscow, Idaho.
