The Supreme Court of Ohio has adopted several amendments to the Ohio
Rules of Civil Procedure, including several related to electronic
discovery. The amendments, which took effect on July 1, 2008, include
changes to Rules 16, 26, 33, 34, 37, and 45. According to the Supreme
Court’s press release, key amendments include:
clarifying that issues related to electronically stored information are
appropriate topics for resolution during pretrial conferences;
clarifying that discovery of electronically stored information is
permitted; amending to provide factors a judge should consider in
determining sanctions when a party has destroyed potentially relevant
electronically stored information; and specifying that a subpoena may
be used to obtain electronically stored information from nonparties.
