The State Bar of Georgia and the Georgia Chamber of Commerce are forming a joint task force to develop a new court rule that governs electronic discovery in courts across the state.

The task force's goal is to develop a balanced rule that can help courts deal with what it says is becoming an expensive and time-consuming burden.

The task force came together after conversations between leaders of both organizations about e-discovery.

The committee includes attorneys from some of Atlanta's top law firms. It is chaired by Cobb County Superior Court Judge Stephen Schuster.
