Updates to Wisconsin’s Rules of Civil Procedure
Join Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. and the Wisconsin Civil Justice Council, Inc. as we take an in-depth look at Wisconsin’s Rules of Civil Procedure. On April 3, 2018, Governor Walker signed 2017 Wisconsin Act 235 into law. The Act substantially updated and modernized Wisconsin’s Rules of Civil Procedure.
We will discuss the significant changes that every practitioner should know, including new discovery limits and mandates, rules regarding e-discovery, changes to statutes of limitation, incorporation of federal class action rules, and modifications to the timely claim payment statute.
