Superior Court CCLD Guidelines On EDiscovery
This post was written by Edward M. McNally and Christopher J. Spizzirri.
At the recently concluded Georgetown Advanced eDiscovery Institute on November 1, 2010, Judge Joseph Slights commented on the expectations of the judges assigned to the new Complex Civil Litigation Division of the Delaware Superior Court. Briefly, Judge Slights noted: (1) Ediscovery arguments should be broken down to their simplest components, (2) the parties should be prepared at the initial scheduling conference to defend their scope of preservation based on proportionality, (3) he looks to the Sedona Conference for guidance, and (4) he will always sign stipulations for party-paid special discovery masters.
Judeg Slights is 1 of the 3 Superior Court judges assigned to the CCLD.
