(This post has been updated to reflect the current and final information about the new 2021 discovery rules.)
The Texas Supreme Court has released new discovery rules that will be effective January 1, 2021.

Here is a FREE download summary of the final version of the new rules that I have prepared: Final summary new discovery rules 2021.
I also prepared a powerpoint presentation that I prepared summarizing the new rules: A Practical Guide to the New Mandatory Discovery
