    it is time that the rules were updated. However, even with the updates there are going to be problems with costs and with discovery.
    Rather than consider the impact on private litigation, think about how these rules will impact agency law.
    Most government agencies fail to keep track of papers and this results in poor and excessive penalties. The rules may eventually lead to controls on agency law that do not currently exist.
    I really cannot respond to this now based upon restraints placed on me by several agencies and the possibility of retaliation.
    However, I can say that I have observed agencies that lose documents; some do not have proper retention rules; some have rules that clearly violate the constitution.
    yet, they are protected by government rules and law. Sometimes, I believe that congress has abrogated their job when they allow agencies - many of they executive - make rules that violate rights.
    I wonder how these rules will impact NSA, the IRS, and many other agencies (FDA, EPA) and if these agencies can be required to produce their activities showing how they selectively enforce laws?
    Although there are issues in the news about Snowden being a traitor, and a criminal, think about all of the agency bigwigs who have allowed their agencies to violate the constitution as if it does not apply to them.
    The witch hunt appears to be directed by witches that have violated their oath to uphold the constitution. NOthing is being done about their transgressions!
    What happens on a federal level is repeated on a state level - and their are no consequences.
