Irresistible Evidence Under Federal Rule 26(c): Proving Annoyance, Embarrassment, and Undue Burden
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will discuss how to get a court's attention in a discovery dispute and prove (or disprove) annoyance, embarrassment, and undue burden for Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(c) and corresponding state court rules. The panel will discuss the evidence needed beyond boilerplate recitals, what degree of annoyance, embarrassment, or burden justifies judicial intervention, and what moves judges to grant relief. The panel will also discuss the use of special masters.
- Relevant legal standards
- Evidence that captures the court's attention
- Undue burden or expense
- Trade secret or other confidential research, development, or commercial information
- Cost shifting and sanctions
The panel will review these and other issues:
- What is particularized harm?
- What is excessive annoyance, oppression, or embarrassment?
- How is undue burden measured?
- Must a respondent create new records or compile data?
