Going green has become a topic of ongoing importance, with consumers increasingly seeking out businesses that employ environmentally responsible practices.

Demand Response (DR) in the Texas restructured market seems to be on verge of becoming the next big thing. Unfortunately, it has been on the verge of being the next big thing for quite a while.

Attorneys' work product, mental impressions, legal theories, and conclusions generally fall within a zone of privacy and, therefore, are protected from disclosure. In addition, attorneys regularly rely on subject-matter experts to develop and implement litigation strategies. These experts routinely prepare materials to be used in litigation. In certain instances, materials prepared for litigation by experts are deemed to fall within the protected zone of privacy and are protected from disclosure by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure ("FRCP"). In many respects, administrative litigation before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC" or "Commission") is similar to litigation before Federal courts. FERC has promulgated rules to govern discovery in litigation and has modeled its rule governing discovery of materials prepared in anticipation of litigation, Rule 402(b), on the Federal rule.
