The E-Discovery Committee of the D.C. Bar Litigation Section was founded in 2009 to address the needs of Bar members practicing in one of the most electronic discovery-savvy jurisdictions in the nation. In addition to developing and sponsoring education on important electronic discovery topics, the Committee provides a collegial setting for attorneys from the defense bar, plaintiffs’ bar, federal, state and local governments and the litigation support industry to discuss developments in the law and cutting-edge technology related to the discovery of electronic data. The Committee also provides assistance to the D.C. courts on electronic discovery questions and has consulted with representatives of the various courts on matters regarding discovery mediation and the use of special masters.
The Committee holds monthly meetings discussing relevant topics at various locations around DC. This month’s speakers will be Judge Facciola and Johnathan Redgrave, on September 22, 2014 at McDermott, Will & Emery; the topic will be Privilege Logs.
