The Sedona Conference,® a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) research and educational institute dedicated to the advanced study of law and policy in the areas of antitrust law, complex litigation, and intellectual property rights, will use JOLT articles in its Cooperation Proclamation, a resource for members of the Judiciary. The Sedona Converence’s mission is to drive the reasoned and just advancement of law and policy by stimulating ongoing dialogue amongst leaders of the bench and bar to achieve consensus on critical issues.
The conference will use the following four JOLT articles:
- Thomas Y. Allman, The ‘Two-Tiered’ Approach to E-Discovery: Has Rule 26(b)(2)(B) Fulfilled Its Promise? Volume XIV, Issue 3
- Maura R. Grossman & Gordon V. Cormack, Technology-Assisted Review in E-Discovery Can Be More Effective and More Efficient Than Exhaustive Manual Review, Volume XVII, Issue 3
- Mia Mazza, Emmalena K. Quesada, Ashley L. Sternberg, In Pursuit of FRCP 1: Creative Approaches to Cutting and Shifting the Costs of Discovery of Electronically Stored Information, Vol. XIII Issue 1,
- P.W. Grimm, L.Y. Bergstrom & M.P. Kraeuter, Federal Rule of Evidence 502: Has It Lived Up to Its Potential?, Vol. XVIII Issue 1.
The Proclamation aims to “reverse the legal culture of adversarial discovery that is driving up costs and delaying justice; to help create “toolkits” of model case management techniques and resources for the Bench, inside counsel, and outside counsel to facilitate proportionality and cooperation in discovery; and to help create a network of trained electronic discovery mediators available to parties in state and federal courts nationwide, regardless of technical sophistication, [or] financial resources.”
