- The commentary on interrogatories has been enhanced including practical insights into the correct form that an interrogatory should take. Examples of defective interrogatories have been added to assist practitioners in drafting interrogatories.
- The commentary on expert witnesses has been enhanced. The commentary now highlights the crucial point that reliance on an expert report will usually waive privilege over all materials or communications that may have influenced the expert in forming their opinion.
