Marts Featured in The Arkansas Lawyer; Discusses Amendments to Federal Discovery Rules
In the Summer 2016 issue of The Arkansas Lawyer, Wright Lindsey Jennings trial attorney Gary D. Marts, Jr. addresses several amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which took effect in December 2015. Marts offers insight into substantial changes to the discovery rules, particularly as related to the scope of discovery, timing of requests, and the handling of electronically-stored information. The changes are particularly germane to attorneys who practice in the federal courts.
Marts focuses his practice on complex litigation, particularly class action, mass tort, and appellate matters. Since beginning his practice in 2004, Marts has handled more than fifty appeals in the Arkansas and federal appellate courts, providing oral argument in several of those cases. Those cases span the broad range of substantive law areas in which WLJ practices, including bankruptcy, commercial disputes, products liability, insurance coverage disputes, employment disputes, and personal injury cases. Marts has also represented Wright Lindsey Jennings clients in several class actions, obtaining dismissals of several matters at the outset and defeating class certification of both national and state-wide classes in other matters.
