Megan Brillault Quoted in Bloomberg BNA on Recent Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure

Principal Megan Brillault (New York) was quoted in a January 19 article in Bloomberg BNA titled “Civil Rule Changes Could Affect Environmental Litigation.” The article discusses the recent amendments to the federal rules of civil procedure.

She also discussed an adjustment period and said to expect "some fumbling around, as there often is, when something new comes, as lawyers and courts try to figure out how things are going to proceed.”
