"Litigation Perspectives—From Sedona to Atlanta—eDiscovery Evidence and Ethics," KPMG, Perspectives for Counsel
On March 31, 2017, from 3:15 PM-4:15 PM, Rachael Lee Zichella will be speaking on the topic "Litigation Perspectives—From Sedona to Atlanta—eDiscovery Evidence and Ethics" at Atlanta CLE "Perspectives for Counsel." In 2016, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure were amended regarding eDiscovery to focus on, among other things, cooperation among counsel and active and early case management by judges. Standards of proportionality and relevancy were modified, and increased civility was expected. A year after implementation, the new rules are oftentimes not followed by counsel and are not enforced consistently by federal courts. Moreover, because Georgia has not adopted these changes, there are important differences in how eDiscovery is handled in state and federal courts. As a result, the eDiscovery landscape is ripe for ethical and evidentiary dilemmas for attorneys. For more information and to register, please visit the KPMG website.
