Join Eric Evans for The Sedona Conference 2018 Annual Meeting entitled “Working Group 1: Electronic Document Retention & Production” at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles, CA, on Thursday, October 24 - Friday, October 26, 2018.
Eric will participate in a panel titled “Not Reasonably Accessible: What does Rule 26(b)(2)(B) give us that other rules don’t? Reconciling the differences between proportionality and not reasonably accessible.”
This session explores the role of Rule 26(b)(2)(B) (“not reasonable accessible because of undue burden or cost”) in light of the proportionality limitations to discovery under Rules 26(b)(1) (limiting discovery to that which is relevant and proportionality to the needs of the case). The discussion will address the apparent confusion over how each rule works, the interplay between each rule, the intent behind the rules, and provide guidance for resolving these issues going forward.
Attendees contribute to the dialogue in various sessions during the conference including:
- Not Reasonably Accessible: What does Rule 26(b)(2)(B) give us that other rules don’t?
- eDiscovery Best Practices for Small Cases: What guidance can Sedona provide?
- Rule 45 and Non-party Discovery: Updated guidance in the age of proportionality and the rise of third-party apps.
- ESI Evidence & Admissibility: Updates to Sedona’s 2008 Commentary
- Litigating at the Intersection of Sedona Principle 6 and Cooperation & Transparency
