This third edition reflects the December 1, 2015, amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the reasons for the amendments.  This third edition also reflects the rise of new devices on which electronically stored information (ESI) is created and stored, such as smartphones and new sources of ESI, such as social medial This guide updates judges on how ESI may be searched and also suggests case management techniques that judges might use in smaller civil actions in which the costs of ESI discovery could hamper resolution on the merits.   Examples of Electronically stored information (ESI) include email messages, word-processing files, webpages, and databases that are created and stored on computers, magnetic disks (i.e. computer hard drives), optical disks (i.e. DVDs and CDs), and flash memory (i.e. thumb or flash drives).  Additionally, ESI is stored on cloud-based servers often hosted by third parties that can be accessed through internet connections.  Unlike paper documents, ESI can be produced (formatted) in different forms and stored in numerous places, plus metadata is often stored within the electronic document that is not available in printed format, such as dates of file creation, file revisions, etc.  The choice and form of production was not an issue with paper discovery, but it can lead to disputes in ESI discovery.

About the Federal Judicial Center
The Federal Judicial Center is the research and education agency of the federal judicial
system. It was established by Congress in 1967 (28 U.S.C. §§ 620–629), on the recommendation
of the Judicial Conference of the United States.  By statute, the Chief Justice of the United States chairs the Center’s Board, which also includes the director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts and seven judges elected by the Judicial Conference.

The organization of the Center reflects its primary statutory mandates. The Education
Division plans and produces education and training for judges and court staff, including in-person programs, video programs, publications, curriculum packages for in-district training, and Web-based programs and resources. The Research Division examines and evaluates current and alternative federal court practices and policies.  This research assists Judicial Conference committees, who request most Center research, in developing policy recommendations. The Center’s research also contributes substantially to its educational programs. The Federal Judicial History Office helps
courts and others study and preserve federal judicial history. The International Judicial Relations Office provides information to judicial and legal officials from foreign countries and informs federal judicial personnel of developments in international law and other court systems that may affect their work. Two units of the Director’s Office— the Information Technology Office and the Editorial & Information Services Office—support Center missions through technology, editorial and design assistance, and organization and dissemination of Center resources.
