Join the Los Angeles Chapter of WiE as Special Counsel's Chuck Kellner delivers the Year in Review for ESI in 2018. This one-hour session will highlight several significant 2018 eDiscovery decisions coming out of the Federal District Courts that show best where the law is heading. This is a How-To session! We’re not going to drone on about the case abstracts, though we will have them available in the materials. Rather, we are going to focus on the important facts and decisions in the case to inform us about Best Practices going forward. Learn, for example:
How are the Courts using the new FRCP 37(e) to fashion sanctions? What can you do to keep your clients (and supervisors) out of trouble?
What do judges want to know about the reasonableness of discovery requests? How are they dealing with vague requests and, to the point, vague objections under the new FRCP 34(b)(2)(C)?
Proportionality, cost and burden: What do you need to know to make your case to limit overly broad discovery? When is the best time, procedurally, to bring your marbles (and metrics) to the table?
What are some practice tips you can use in your eDiscovery workspaces to pre-segregate privilege documents more finely, even when there’s no lawyer on the email?
There will be room for discussion within each case to air what you think about each decision and how you should manage your project either to keep yourself out of motion practice or to manage it to your advantage. Thanks to Special Counsel for hosting our luncheon as well!
