Oklahoma Best Practices for E-Discovery:
On November 1, 2010, amendments were made to Oklahoma’s Code of Civil Procedure that address electronically stored information. These amendments are largely analogous to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, without a mandatory meet and confer conference. In August 2009, the Western District of Oklahoma adopted “Best Practices for Electronic Discovery of Documentary Materials in Criminal Cases.” These best practices include: addressing the nature and volume of discovery, timeframes for initial production and requirements that production will be in standard .PDF format and mandatory good-faith discussions of possible cost-sharing, among others.
Title 12, Chapter 41, Section 3226, 3233, 3234, 3237.
