Everything in Moderation: Proportionality in eDiscovery

On December 1, 2015, the most significant amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure became effective since the 2006 amendments that made the era of electronically-stored information official.  Among the rules revised was Federal Rule of Civil Procedure (“FRCP”) 26(b)(1), which defines the scope of discovery.  The change brought the existing-but-overlooked concept of proportionality front and center in an attempt to combat the runaway cost and scale of discovery in the digital era.

This amended version now incorporates a multi-factor proportionality test directly into the general discovery scope definition and places “proportional” on equal footing with “relevant” as a discoverability criteria.

So, in the two years since this amendment became effective, has the role of proportionality in discovery actually changed?  How are courts applying the multi-factor proportionality test now enshrined in FRCP 26(b)(1)?  Have objections based on proportionality been successful?
