Sedona Conference Publishes Third Edition of Resources for the Judiciary
This latest edition builds on that framework, focusing on “the stages of litigation from a judge’s perspective,” starting with the preservation of ESI, though the initial case management order, the resolution of discovery disputes, trial, and post-judgment award of costs.
The Sedona Conference announces the online publication of the third edition of The Sedona Conference Cooperation Proclamation: Resources for the Judiciary. Since its initial publication in August 2011, the Resources offer state and federal judges a framework for managing civil cases – large or small – involving the discovery of electronically stored information (“ESI”). This latest edition builds on that framework, focusing on “the stages of litigation from a judge’s perspective,” starting with the preservation of ESI, though the initial case management order, the resolution of discovery disputes, trial, and post-judgment award of costs. The discussions, tools, and references for each stage of litigation emphasize effective judicial case management by encouraging the parties to act in the spirit of The Sedona Conference Cooperation Proclamation.
In this edition, case law and Rule references are updated and references to current secondary sources are included in an Addendum. A new section on Judicial Ethics regarding ESI is added that addresses such issues as whether a judge should “friend” an attorney on social media or engage in Internet research.
To download your copy of The Resources, free of charge, click here. Comments, critiques, and contributions to future editions are welcome, and should be sent to Senior Editors Ronald J. Hedges firstname.lastname@example.org and Kenneth J. Withers at email@example.com . Updates to the Resources are periodically reviewed by a diverse judicial panel to assure that the Resources is current, non-partisan, and practical.
