On Thursday February 26, 2015, Susan Wortzman will moderate a panel of members of The Sedona Conference and Working Group 7 (Sedona Canada) to introduce the much-anticipated Second Edition of The Sedona Canada Principles.
During the session, members of the WG7 Steering Committee who led the extensive drafting effort for this comprehensive update to The Sedona Canada Principles will present their key updated recommendations, including: The application of proportionality to the discovery of Electronically Stored Information (“ESI”); a renewed emphasis on the concept of cooperation in developing a joint discovery plan, and a proposed departure from the “meet-and-confer” practice as this term is typically used; the existing and potential future usage of technological tools to streamline the e-discovery process and obviate many e-discovery disputes; the application of privacy in various e-discovery contexts, including social media, employer-issued devices, and criminal investigations; and the application of cost-shifting, and sanctions for e-discovery abuses, in today’s Canadian litigation environment.
