Stewart Weltman: Lean, mean, worth reading and watching.
Re: our SLM (Federal Courts) series, see Stewart Weltman's Lean and Mean Litigation and a piece on a subject of interest to us: discovery done right, which good judges and their clerks don't always have a perfect handle on. We'd have proudly put our name to this post, "Another Reason Why You Shouldn't Play Games When Producing Documents". It reflects the broad and liberal precept of Rule 26, Fed. R. Civ. P. (and state counterparts), withholding information on relevancy grounds (generally, a bad idea and even notion), and the "dicey" problem of redaction. Note the boomerang graphic, folks.
