Chief Justice reports that civil litigation has become too expensive and time consuming which inhibits access to the courts.
Each year the Chief Justice prepares a year-end report on the federal judiciary. For the 2015 report, Chief Justice Roberts chose to talk about the topic of the 2015 rule changes. Understanding the reason for the changes and the overarching purpose for the changes helps litigants, as well as courts, interpret the rules and the changes going forward. This video discusses these rule changes are how they are not technical amendments but are rather procedural reform to address certain problems that have arisen in federal civil discovery by virtue of the complexity of cases and modern changes to how everyone lives their lives and runs their business.
