On February 17, 2021, WLF joined a coalition of civil-justice reform groups to support proposed amendments to Massachusetts Rules of Civil Procedure 30 and 30A. Tracking the approach of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the proposed amendments would limit each side in a dispute to ten depositions, with each deposition limited in duration to one day of seven hours. In a formal comment to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, WLF explained that the proposed revisions would modernize the Commonwealth’s discovery rules and help to harmonize the deposition practice in both state and federal courts in Massachusetts. WLF’s comment was drafted with the pro bono assistance of Mark Behrens at Shook, Hardy & Bacon L.L.P.
