Please join us for a recap and an up-to-the minute overview on efforts to encourage federal rulemaking on preservation obligations in federal courts. The panel will address pressing concerns around the current preservation regimen and discuss why changes to this regimen are necessary. Two of the panelists were among the 25 invited speakers at the recent Mini-conference on Preservation and Sanctions convened by the U.S. Judicial Conference's Advisory Committee on Civil Rules.
A rare opportunity now exists to shape the amendments to future rules in a positive way for parties in federal courts. Law firms that represent parties in federal cases, particularly those involved in matters involving large data preservation and collection, and such entities themselves, will be equipped by this program to make their voices heard during this important process.
Holt Lackey, Counsel to the Judiciary Committee at the U.S. House of Representatives, who stands at the center of the debate and helped organize the recent Congressional hearing on "The Costs and Burdens of Civil Discovery."
Robert Levy, ExxonMobil Counsel, who has more than 25 years of litigation experience and is an expert in records management issues and e-discovery.
Stephanie Kinzel-Tapper, Sutherland Associate, who has handled a number of discovery issues in complex litigation cases, including retention, collection and production of e-discovery.
Sutherland Partner Bob Owen will moderate the discussion. Bob is a nationally recognized adviser for e-discovery with more than 35 years of experience. He is listed by Chambers USA, Band 1, and Chambers Global in the e-discovery field.
We hope you will join us. Our program has been approved for 1 hour of Ethics CLE credit in Texas.
