In case you missed it on the civ pro listserv, Professor Patrick Woolley provided this information about the Civil Procedure Section program at the AALS Annual Meeting:
The civil procedure program at the annual meeting will be held on Friday, January 8, beginning at 10:15 a.m. The program is entitled “Revisiting Discovery.” The papers selected for the program will address the role of discovery in the context of the litigation system as a whole. In fact, I expect that much of the discussion by panelists (and comments from the audience) will be about the meaning and impact of Twombly and Iqbal.
Our three presenters will be (1) Suzette Malveaux, Frontloading and Heavy Lifting: The Evolving Role of Discovery in Contemporary Civil Rights Litigation, (2) Steven Gensler, Procedure a la Carte, and (3) Adam Steinman, Why Discovery Management Still Matters After Iqbal (and How It Might be Improved). Lonny Hoffman will moderate.
