The Court's New E-Disclosure RequirementsSeptember 2010
From 1 October 2010 all new proceedings will be subject to more rigorous e-disclosure requirements.
There is a new Practice Direction (PD31B) and questionnaire dedicated to e-disclosure, and specific e-disclosure questions have been added to the Allocation Questionnaire.
Overall there is greater emphasis on agreeing the scope and extent of e-disclosure early, with more prescriptive issues for the parties to discuss and more detailed guidance.
Nick Gillies and John Henderson provide further details of the new requirements.
