Capes Sokol Attorney to Present at the 2019 Sedona Conference WG1 Annual Meeting

On October 24th, Capes Sokol attorney Lisa DeBord will participate in a panel at The Sedona Conference Working Group 1 Annual Meeting 2019.

The Sedona Conference is a research and educational institute dedicated to the advanced study of law and policy in the areas of antitrust law, complex litigation, and intellectual property rights.  Formed in 2002, Working Group 1 (“WG1”) focuses on developing principles, guidance, and best practices for information governance and electronic discovery in the context of litigation.  Courts across the country cite to Sedona Conference publications in resolving discovery disputes.  Trial lawyers and litigators are well-advised to keep abreast of the WG1’s activities.

Thursday’s panel at the WG1 Annual Meeting will provide updates on recent eDiscovery decisions in civil litigation, including cases related to eDiscovery protocols, cross-border discovery, proportionality, Rule 34 responses, and Rule 45 non-party discovery.  Lisa’s presentation will concentrate on recent eDiscovery cases relating to privilege.  Within the context of these case law updates, WG1 members will consider if the 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure have achieved their objective of making civil discovery more “just, speedy, and inexpensive”.  Discussion will be led by Kenneth J. Withers of the Sedona Conference and the Honorable Audrey G. Fleissig of the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Missouri.

Practitioners must stay up to date on these eDiscovery case law developments given the growing prominence of electronically stored information in discovery.  For more information about these recent decisions, please follow us on LinkedIn @CapesSokol.
