The Sedona Conference, a leading think tank on e-discovery law and practice, recently released its latest publication, “The Sedona Conference Commentary on BYOD,” which discusses the use and discovery of employee-owned devices in the work context. Paul, Weiss is a sponsor and active member of The Sedona Conference, represented by litigation partner Christopher Boehning and e-discovery counsel Ross Gotler, who assisted in drafting this commentary.
The Commentary highlights the ongoing trend for organizations to adopt permissive or required Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs and sets forth principles and commentary regarding related discovery obligations of organizations. It is especially notable for practitioners and judges as the first major reference source for the principle that employee-owned devices that do not contain unique, relevant work-related information need not be considered sources for discovery.
