Governor Bredesen has signed the "Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act" into law. The Act is effective for discovery requests after July 1, 2008.
The legislation establishes a procedure for litigants in other states to do discovery in Tennessee. However, the Act is a uniform act, so Tennessee lawyers will benefit from knowledge of it when they have to do discovery in other states that also have the Act
The legislation also repeals on portion of the current chapter, T.C.A. Section 24-9-103.
