Suja Thomas on General Motors and the Jury System


There is an interesting discussion over at saveourjuries.com by friend-of-blog Suja Thomas (Illinois) which examines the proposed procedural changes being advanced by some large companies that would effect how discovery takes place.  These changes, if adopted, would have a dramatic impact on employment law cases -- potentially resulting in a greater number of dismissals and lower rates of success at trial.  From the discussion:

"Under the proposed rule, without relevant information, courts are even more likely to dismiss these cases and other cases . . . before trial. Also, if cases are not dismissed before trial and end up before a jury, the cases will continue to be more difficult to win without relevant information."

The is a really interesting topic, and I encourage you to take a look at the discussion and weigh in.  As many of you know, Suja testified before the Advisory Committee on the Civil Rules on this issue.
