The Sedona Conference Journal, Volume 22 and Final Commentary on 502(d) Orders: eDiscovery Trends

It’s conference day!  See what I did there?  😉  The Sedona Conference® (TSC) has just published The Sedona Conference Journal Volume 22.  And they just published the final version of the Commentary on the Effective Use of Federal Rule of Evidence 502(d) Orders to boot!

Volume 22 of the Journal contains three nonpartisan consensus commentaries from The Sedona Conference Working Group on Data Security and Privacy Liability (WG11), two nonpartisan consensus commentaries from the Working Group on Electronic Document Retention and Production (WG1), one nonpartisan consensus commentary from the Working Group on International Electronic Information Management, Discovery, and Disclosure (WG6), and one nonpartisan consensus commentary from the Working Group on Trade Secrets (WG12). It also contains timely new articles on Qualified Immunity and Implicit Bias, both authored by members of the federal judiciary.  Here are the contents of Volume 22 of the Journal, weighing in at a healthy 622 pages!  😮

Additionally, the Hon. Andrew Peck (ret.) informed me that the final version of the Commentary on the Effective Use of Federal Rule of Evidence 502(d) Orders (I covered the public comment version here) was also published late last week.  You can download that Commentary here!

So, what do you think?  Have you read Volume 22 and the 502(d) Commentary yet?  Better have a Snickers bar handy!  And please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
