Prof. Gensler Addresses the “War on Boilerplate” at the Fifth Circuit Judicial Conference

Last week, Prof. Steven Gensler spoke at the Judicial Conference of the Fifth Circuit. Gensler sat on a panel with three judges and a practicing attorney. The group provided an update on recent and upcoming changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and to the Federal Rules of Evidence. Judges and lawyers from the Fifth Circuit were in attendance. 

“The topic that seemed to interest the audience most was the recent trend of federal judges cracking down on the use of boilerplate objections in discovery," said Gensler.
