  • Dramatic changes to Rule 34(b) which a) brought specificity to the requests for production of documents and b) attempted to do away with the tactic of objecting broadly to requests for production while, at the same time, producing some documents. This particular tactic leaves the propounding party guessing as to whether relevant information was withheld on the basis of the boilerplate objections. The new version of Rule 34 puts an end to that practice.
