The American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law is pleased to
present the Antitrust Discovery Handbook . Recent amendments to the
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Federal Rules of Evidence, as
well as a growing body of caselaw particularly in the electronic discovery
arena, continue to clarify litigants’ obligations with respect to antitrust
discovery. Advancements in technology are facilitating the large-scale
production of documents. Third party discovery practice is becoming
more important, as are the implications of cross-border international
discovery, access to grand jury documents, and the rising use of
multidistrict litigation in private antitrust suits.
The Section is grateful to project chair Shannon E. McClure, and her
team of contributing authors and editors, for undertaking this challenging
task. The Section also thanks Sarah Mathias and Amy Manning, past and
present Chairs of the Section’s Civil Practice and Procedure Committee,
for their support and oversight of this project. We trust this book will serve
as a useful guide for attorneys in private practice who counsel and
represent clients in private antitrust suits.
