Vaira Opines on Mandatory Disclosure in ND Illinois

On July 17, 2017, NAFUSA member Peter Vaira published an article in The Legal Intelligencer describing a mandatory disclosure program for civil cases in the Northern District of Illinois. It requires all parties to disclose materials before any discovery begins or normal disclosure pursuant to Rule 26.

Vaira reports that the program was devised by the Judicial Conference of the United States and that, depending upon the results, the procedure may become part of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, or may be adopted by various courts on their own.
