Ten eDiscovery Best Practices

Ten eDiscovery Best Practices from Last Week’s Judges Panel: eDiscovery Best Practices

In his latest post, Jim Gill of Hanzo discusses highlights from last week’s E-Discovery Day, including ten eDiscovery best practices from last week’s judges panel!

In the article (Looking Back at 2022 in LegalTech Reveals Trends Going into the New Year: An Ediscovery Day Recap, available here), Jim discusses the Judges Roundtable webcast, which included these judges:

  • Hon. Joy Conti, Sr. US District Judge, W.D. Pennsylvania
  • Hon. William Matthewman, US Magistrate Judge, S.D. Florida
  • Hon. Charmiane Claxton, US Magistrate Judge, W. Tennessee

The panel agreed that two things that stood out in 2022 were the proliferation of data, both in volume and source type, and the increased competency of attorneys.


Judge Claxton noted that she hadn’t had as many “eDiscovery dustups in her district,” in 2022, and that, “Attorneys are more competent, cost-conscious, and open to working together.”

Judge Conti noted the development of the use of technology that came out of the Covid restrictions over the past two years, and that now, she rarely has lawyers in chambers through the use of video meetings. As a separate topic, she also mentioned the increase of ephemeral messaging showing up in discovery, and that attorneys may not be up to date on these new data sources.

Judge Matthewman stated that “Remote technology is here to stay, and lawyers need to step up their game when it comes to presentation both in their speaking and showing of documents and appearance.”

But the Judges Panel also offered these ten eDiscovery best practices! So, what are they? You’ll have to read his blog post here to find out! It’s just one more click! 😉

P.S.: Jim also provided some highlights of the 2022 Survey Results: The State Of Collaboration Data & Corporate Readiness webinar too!
