E-discovery: New Sedona Conference developments continue to alter the e-discovery landscape

Courts frequently cite the group’s Principles and Cooperation Proclamation

Satisfying a party’s e-discovery obligations is a complex and expensive task. In-house counsel, lawyers and judges often refer to and cite e-discovery-related publications of the Sedona Conference, which provides valuable resources to address difficult e-discovery questions. This article will examine some recent and anticipated developments at the Sedona Conference which could further change the landscape of e-discovery.

The Sedona Conference is a non-partisan law and policy think tank on antitrust law, complex litigation and intellectual property legal issues. It is perhaps best known for the Sedona Principles Addressing Electronic Document Production, Second Edition (June 2007), one of the most influential guidelines of e-discovery best practices. The Sedona Principles consist of 14 “best practices recommendations and principles,” each of which is accompanied by commentary regarding its application. They are intended to address the entire range of e-discovery issues that may arise. Because the Sedona Principles are frequently cited in leading judicial decisions regarding e-discovery and may help resolve unanswered questions, in-house counsel should regularly consult them.
