E-discovery: a new game that’s changing the rules

As e-discovery becomes more expensive, time consuming and pervasive in litigation, and presents a new range of ethical pitfalls, education in the e-discovery field is of paramount importance.

Currently, there are new e-discovery rules under consideration for adoption by the Florida Supreme Court. The point has been made that e-discovery issues lend themselves to resolution by mediation.  UWWM Mediation Group Principal, John Upchurch, who recently gave presentations on two separate e-discovery topics at the ACEDS 2012 Annual Conference, said: “Whether as mediators conducting voluntary negotiations, or as Special Magistrates by court appointment, e-discovery neutrals will play an essential role going forward in resolving these complex, expensive, and time consuming disputes.”
