Activity with Regards to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Amendments

In 2015, Colorado amended its Rules of Civil Procedure to mirror the amendements to the then upcoming FRCP 2015 amendments. The comments to Rule 26 indicate that the proportionality factors are to be read in conjunction with the Rule 1 requirements that the "rules shall be liberally construed, administered, and employed by the court and the parties to secure the just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of every action."

Rule 34 was changed to adopt similar revisions as in FRCP 34 after the 2015 amendments, which are designed to make responses to requests for documents more meaningful and transparent.

Despite Colorado's adherence to the 2015 FRCP, the Colorado rules have no equivalent of FRCP 37(e).
