Minnesota Association for Justice
Since the publication of Mark Kosieradzki’s 30(b)(6): Deposing Corporations, Organizations & the Government in 2016, there has been an explosion in the use of the rule and the resulting litigation associated with it. As new techniques have evolved to try to evade disclosures of evidence from 30(b)(6) depositions, new techniques have been developed to ensure compliance.
Powerful interests petitioned the Federal Rules Committee in an attempt to water down Rule 30(b)(6). An amendment to Rule 30(b)(6) that establishes the need for a “meet and confer” before taking a 30(b)(6) deposition will take effect December 1, 2020. As a result of these developments, Mark has updated his book to give everyone the ability to keep using 30(b)(6) to efficiently get to the truth.
Mark will share insights from his second edition of 30(b)(6): Deposing Corporations, Organizations & the Government, including:
An overview of Rule 30(b)(6)
Duties of the responding organization
Duties of the requesting party
Using Rule 30(b)(6) to neutralize discovery objections
Implementing the 30(b)(6) rule change
There are over 200 new citations in the body of the second edition, as well as new chapters on the standards and jurisprudence for relevance and proportionality following 2015 amendments to FRCP 26(b)(1), on how to use 30(b)(6) foundational depositions to neutralize and eliminate spurious objections to document requests, explaining process-based discovery and how to use 30(b)(6) depositions for process-based discovery. Sections throughout the book have been expanded to identify evolving jurisprudence concerning post-2020 COVID-19 pandemic logistics. Registrants will also receive a 10% off code for the second edition.
