Your heart sinks when you see a headline like that. PN 17 re-issued already? It only came into force in February. What can have turned up which warranted re-issuing it?
It transpires that this is the result of a re-numbering exercise consequent on a decision that only two forms of practice documents will be issued by the Federal Court of Australia, Practice Notes issued by the Chief Justice and local Administrative Notices issued by each District Registrar.
PN 17 is now PN CM 6 and is now entitled Electronic Technology in Litigation. My thanks to Seamus Byrne for providing the links and to Michelle Mahoney of Mallesons who, as always, was quickest to the draw when it comes to ferreting out useful pointers.
I will be seeing Seamus in Singapore on 21 October when we are both speaking at the LexisNexis E-Discovery & Digital Forensics Conference on 21 and 22 October. Michelle and I are doing a session together (virtually, at least) at Virtual LegalTech on 19 November.
