NEW FLORIDA E-DISCOVERY RULES

   The Florida Supreme Court has scheduled oral argument on new e-discovery court rules on March 7, 2012.  Several years in the making, the rules have been “fast-tracked” and are expected to be adopted in the near future. E-discovery has arrived as a discrete category. http://www.floridasupremecourt.org/decisions/proposed.shtml#civil


 The Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (www.aceds.org), a consortium of attorneys, IT and litigation staff specialists has its annual conference in Hollywood, Florida, April 2-4, 2012.  They have asked me to speak on the use of neutrals in e-discovery proceedings, a potentially exciting new application of the mediation process.  Follow this link to hear a preview of my remarks in the form of a podcast: How neutrals save time and cut costs
 
 Let me know if you wish to attend the conference.  ACEDS has provided the speakers with “savings vouchers” for their clients.  I feel confident you’ll benefit from the meeting. jupch@uww-adr.com
