The mission of Working Group 1 is to develop principles, guidance, and best practice recommendations for information governance and electronic discovery in the context of litigation, dispute resolution, and investigations. The group released the first public comment draft of The Sedona Principles in March 2003, and the impact was immediate and substantial. Within a few weeks, The Sedona Principles was cited by the Civil Rules Advisory Committee Discovery Subcommittee as one of the reasons to focus on possible amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and it was cited in the seminal Zubulake case in the Southern District of New York. Since then, WG1 has published updated editions of The Sedona Principles and several companion works, including guidelines for electronic document management, and authoritative glossary of e-discovery and electronic records management terms, several commentaries on e-discovery related topics, and cooperation guidance for trial lawyers, in-house counsel, and the judiciary.
HaystackID welcomes the opportunity to discuss your current challenges, how they impact your organization, and how we may be able to help you solve those challenges. If you would like to learn more, please reach out to our data and legal discovery experts to request a meeting.
