eData partner Scott Milner will moderate a panel titled “Think Tank for Redactions” at the 2020 Georgetown Law Global Advanced eDiscovery Institute ("AEDI").

Think Tank for Redactions

  • If the rules for the scope and procedures for redactions in discovery were being re-written today, what would they look like?
  • In this session, you will:
    • Analyze the current state of redactions, including the allowable scope (privilege and statutory, i.e., HIPAA, Bank Privacy, etc.) and the burden in preparing logs 
    • Discuss whether the scope of redactions should be expanded, perhaps to include redactions for:
    • relevancy
    • confidentiality
    • trade secret and proprietary information 
    • privacy and data protection (i.e., PII, international protections)
    • Consider proposed methods to reduce the burden of redactions, including a proposal for creation of a “502(d)” equivalent for redactions
