This program will highlight issues that may arise in the increasingly complex area of electronic discovery and seeks to elucidate how adverse parties can achieve positive results, including through cooperation in discovery. The program, co-chaired by Judge Shira Scheindlin and Ariana Tadler, will present three stages of a hypothetical litigation in which both parties have prepared Rule 26 initial disclosures. Issues encompassed by the program will include the scope of preservation, undue cost and burden and cost-shifting, backup tapes, and accessible versus non-accessible sources.
