Dallas Principal Ryan Hargrave wrote an article appearing in Texas Lawyer titled "Proportionality of Discovery Under Amended Rule 26(b)." The article discusses Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(b), which governs the appropriate scope of discovery in federal litigation, and the Supreme Court amendment to emphasize the proportionality factors that had been previously tucked away in subsection (b)(2) and were often overlooked by courts and litigants.
The full article can be found here.
