Case Law Updates Critical to Keeping Abreast of E-Discovery Issues

Guidance Software In the first session of the E-discovery Lecture Track at CEIC, Ken Withers, Director, Judicial Education and Content for The Sedona Conference and Retired Magistrate Judge Ron Hedges presented an overview of the most recent e-discovery case opinions. Culled down from more than 250 cases over the past year, the presentation focused on subject areas such as preservation and collection, proportionality, form of production, and sanctions. The speakers used the case law subjects to inform a lively discussion with the audience throughout. In a timely update, the presenters opened the session with an overview of the recent issuance of the two Rambus opinions by the Federal Circuit Court and along the way gave an overview of the National Day Laborer case including an alert to the attendees of the status of the case on appeal and some of the particular e-discovery issues in the case. The case law update session closed with a discussion of sanctions cases, including those high profile sanctions cases which ended in a less than spectacular sanctions order such as Qualcomm.
