    Ethical Considerations in Responding to Written Discovery

    Were you thrown head first into responding to written discovery at the start of your career without much guidance on what’s actually expected of you and your clients?  Has it been a while since you’ve brushed up on the latest federal rule changes affecting discovery?  Are you curious about expectations for discovery of electronically stored information, whether or not block objections are really acceptable, or what to do if your client hasn’t been truthful?

Host Ronnie Gosselin of the Section's Environmental Litigation and Toxic Torts Committee talks with Ameri Klafeta of Eimer Stahl. Find out what you’ve been missing today!

    Fracking and Tribal Sovereignty: The Pawnee Nation Claim

    In 2015, the Pawnee Nation approved a moratorium on fracking. The region was shaken by a 5.8 magnitude earthquake on September 3, 2016. In March 2017, the Pawnee Nation filed a claim in tribal court, seeking damages from several oil companies, alleging hydraulic fracturing (specifically, wastewater injected into disposal wells) caused an increase in earthquakes, damaging tribal buildings and land. This case could be consequential, in that it was brought in tribal court. It brings to the forefront discussion over tribal sovereignty, and tension between tribes’ concerns about harms to the environment and royalties generated by energy and mineral resources, which many tribes rely on.

    Host Cynthia Harris of the Section's Committee on Native American Resources interviews Professor Taiawagi Helton of the University of Oklahoma College of Law.
