12. Protection of attorney-client privilege and work product

12.1. Protection of attorney-client privilege and confidentiality goes to the heart of the adversary system. Production of ESI, which can often be voluminous and contain non-apparent information, leads to the risk that information subject to privilege or work product protection, or information that is confidential in nature, is inadvertently produced or is produced without adequate protection.

11. Confidentiality and public access

11.1. This is a topic that may be raised in any civil action, state or federal. Rule 26(c)(1) (and its state analogs) allows a party to “move for a protective order in the court where the action is pending.” The court may, for good cause, issue an order “to protect a party from annoyance, embarrassment, oppression, or undue burden or expense” for a number of reasons, including the confidential nature of a document. Rule 26(c)(1)(A-H).

10. Form or forms of production

10.1. ESI exists, and can be produced, in various forms. Form of production can be a particularly contentious issue in eDiscovery. Parties can dispute whether ESI should be produced in, for example, paper, PDF, TIFF, or native form.9 This section addresses form of production and why a particular form or forms may be appropriate for the needs of a particular action.

9. Search and collection methodologies

9.1. One goal of judicial case management should be to encourage parties to agree on a search and collection methodology before discovery begins. This should reduce cost and delay and conserve judicial resources. Defining such a methodology in terms of date ranges, data sources, file type, and likely custodians enables parties to conduct eDiscovery in an efficient and cost-effective way.

8. Identification of “not reasonably accessible” sources of ESI

8.1.1. Rule 26(b)(2)(B) provides that a party need not produce ESI from sources that the party identifies as being not reasonably accessible because of undue burden or cost. If a requesting party persists in requesting ESI from those sources, the judge must determine whether the sources are, in fact, not reasonably accessible.

7. Proportionality

7.1.1. Discovery can be expensive. Indeed, some argue that discovery costs and burdens, particularly those related to discovery of ESI, are so expensive that they prevent parties from fully and fairly litigating their claims and defenses in federal or state court.

6. Defining the scope of e-discovery

6.1. All discovery in the federal courts is governed by Rule 26(b)(1), which provides that parties can seek discovery of non-privileged information relevant to any party’s claim or defense and, for good cause shown, “information relevant to the subject matter involved in the action.” The scope of discovery may be different in state rules. However, the scope of eDiscovery is essentially the same as that of discovery generally.
