Sedona Conference publishes the Second Edition of its Sedona Principles Addressing Electronic Document Production

For those interested in e-discovery, the Sedona Conference, one of the country's preeminent legal think tanks in the areas of antitrust law, intellectual property, and complex litigation, has published The Sedona Principles (Second Edition): Best Practices Recommendations and Principles for Addressing Electronic Document Production, available for download from the Sedona Conference here. The First Edition, published prior to the recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, is widely considered to be the bible of best practices for e-discovery. The Second Edition reflects the new language found in the amended Federal Rules, and updates the language and commentary on metadata and the imposition of sanctions.
