How COVID-19 Might Uproot Centuries Of Litigation Traditions

Christopher Hennessy and Elisabeth Ross published an article to Law360 discussing how due to COVID-19 courts, judges and attorneys may have to adapt further or even change the rules of litigation to bring greater flexibility to the way cases are handled. They explain many courts have increasingly limited or abandoned in-person operations in favor of teleconferencing and videoconferencing, certain filing deadlines have been extended, and even the U.S. Supreme Court has postponed oral arguments or rescheduled cases for telephonic argument. The article also discusses that while practitioners increasingly make use of videoconferencing to conduct discovery, it is expected that new protocols and indeed a new litigation etiquette will eventually take shape to address these concerns.
