At The Podium
What Companies Should Know About Discovery Issues in the Courtroom
In their presentation at McAfee & Taft’s 2018 Corporate Counsel Seminar in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, trial lawyers Jodi Dishman and Michael Lauderdale are joined by a panel of judges to discuss practical discovery issues that arise in the course of litigation, the obligations of lawyers to conduct themselves ethically and responsibly, and the numerous ethical rules implicated in discovery, including confidentiality, expediting litigation, candor toward the tribunal, meritorious claims and contentions, fairness to the opposing party and counsel, and supervision of subordinate lawyers and staff. The discussion includes a review of discovery process violations that open corporate entities and corporate counsel to possible court sanctions, ethical complaints, or both.
Featured guest panelists are Judge Don Andrews of Oklahoma County District Court, Judge Thad Balkman of Cleveland County District Court, and Judge Tim DeGiusti of the Western District of Oklahoma.
