The Sedona Conference Cooperation Proclamation: Resources for the Judiciary provides state and federal trial judges with a comprehensive but easy-to-follow guide to eDiscovery case management, based on the precepts of The Sedona Conference Cooperation Proclamation.The Judicial Resources addresses different styles of judicial management of electronically stored information (ESI) but suggests that active case management might be the most efficient means to resolve ESI-related disputes, assuming that the court has the means to do so. It also recognizes that not all civil actions are equal in the resources of the parties, the sophistication of counsel, or the actual amount in issue, so it encourages proportionality. The Judicial Resources is structured around 20 stages of civil litigation when judicial management – either proactively or in response to a request of the parties – is most appropriate or desirable.
