A new Wisconsin law in effect this summer will shorten time limits for bringing certain claims and narrow the scope of discovery, both of which carry far-reaching implications for business owners and the lawyers representing them. The new law restricts the statutes of limitations (i.e., time limits in which a party can bring a claim) from six to three years for claims of fraud as well as claims related to personal rights such as privacy and reputation. Moreover, the law requires courts to “limit the frequency or extent of discovery” under specified circumstances. Review the changes here.
