The FRCP is broken down into thirteen sections, each containing a set of rules to define the procedures of the civil lawsuit process. Amendments to the FRCP on December 1, 2006 addressed and approved changes to regulations on electronically stored information (ESI) requiring all data compilations to be available for discovery requests.
