e-Discovery Cooperation Training Program

February 21-22, 2013

The program features a renowned faculty of e-discovery experts, including the Hon. Shira A. Scheindlin of the Southern District of New York and U.S. Magistrate Judge John Facciola of the District of Columbia. They will help participants examine the notion of cooperation through a single litigation hypothetical – an employment discrimination suit with the potential to explode into a national class action with multiple discovery challenges. Participants in the program will receive a Certificate of Completion.
Judges and litigators, using the hypothetical, will work through stages of the pretrial process. The faculty will guide participants – defense and plaintiff counsel, general counsel, government lawyers, technologists, and litigation support staff – through multiple scenarios and mock exercises to explore practical cooperation strategies to avoid or resolve common conflicts in the preservation, collection, production and use of ESI. The training will focus on how to effectively pursue cooperation in the following scenarios:
  • Addressing pre-litigation preservation demands
  • Reaching agreement in a Rule 26(f) conference on search protocols and custodians
  • Negotiating appropriate forms of production for database and social media discovery
  • Developing creative, cost-saving approaches to privilege review and logging
  • Avoiding a motion for sanctions in a potential spoliation situation
Co-chairing the program are Kenneth J. Withers, Director of Judicial Education for The Sedona Conference®, and the Hon. Ralph Artigliere (retired) of Florida. In addition to Judges Scheindlin and Facciola, the faculty also includes Craig D. Ball, Craig D. Ball P.C.; William P. Butterfield, Hausfeld LLP; Prof. Steven S. Gensler, University of Oklahoma College of Law; Jennifer L. Hamilton, Deere & Company; Sherry B. Harris, Crowley Law Office; Dawson Horn III of New York; John H. Jessen, Jessen & Associates; Jeffrey C. Sharer, Sidley Austin LLP; and Steve Susman, Susman Godfrey L.L.P.
