The Sedona Conference
The Sedona Conference Working Group Series is a series of think-tanks consisting of leading jurists, lawyers, experts and consultants brought together by a desire to address various “tipping point” issues in each area under consideration. The group takes on these issues and creates guidance, through dialogue, in the form of various publications. The publications, mainly The Sedona Principles, are cited in virtually any case that touch on issues that deal with electronic evidence.
Haynes and Boone has been involved in cases dealing with electronic evidence since the mid 1990s. The Sedona Conference
has been an invaluable resource for guidance in this still emerging area of discovery as well as from a records management vantage. Several of the firms’ attorneys are participating members of the Conference and use the groups’ materials as training tools and guidance for others in the firm.
