Discovery in Employment Litigation: What Can We Do to Make Our Lives Easier? CLE

In most pieces of single plaintiff employment litigation, there are routine basic documents and pieces of information to be exchanged. Yet the same issues regarding overly broad requests and overly broad objections continue to result in disputes. This session will explore common discovery and common objections in single plaintiff employment litigation in an effort to identify methods that we can use to minimize time consuming disputes and move cases toward completion.

The Honorable Janis van Meerveld, USDC-EDLA
Larry Demmons, Demmons Law Firm
Edward Harold, Fisher & Phillips
