Expanding discovery master role by participating in 2013 eDiscovery In Review
The Sedona Conference's Cooperation Proclamation originally issued in 2008 remains a vibrant vision for the proper role of "discovery" in our adversarial system of justice. In January 2014 I participated in a training sponsored by the Conference, "2013 eDiscovery In Review". As a part of discussing in detail the proposed changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Discovery (for which cut-off for comments is February 14, 2014), the training covered such diverse issues as proportionality, cost shifting and cost recovery, cooperation, technology assisted reviews, challenges of "new" media sources and preservation and sanctions. Key appellate decisions over th past year were reviewed.
