At the start of the pandemic lockdown, many in-person discoveries were cancelled on the assumption that the lockdown would be temporary. Of course, this did not come to pass and lawyers, in order to keep matters moving, had to move to video conferencing.

As the pandemic continued, the reasons for an in person discovery were shown to be, for the most part, anachronistic.
