Rule 26(a) started in 1993 with an obligation to make initial disclosures added.
The goal of Rule 26(a) is to accelerate the exchange of basic information and cutting out paperwork; based upon experience of district courts with similar systems. In 2000, Rule 26(a) removed the ability of district courts to opt out of the initial disclosure rule. This was based on a striking array of local regimes, and their difficulty in coping with divergent approaches. This video reviews changes to the rule in 2006, 2010 and 2015 as well.
