Extract from Zach Warren's article "There's Still More Judicial E-Discovery Education to Be Done"
Last week, e-discovery standards setting organization The Sedona Conference published the third edition of its e-discovery guide for judges, titled “The Sedona Conference Cooperation Proclamation: Resources for the Judiciary.”
First published in 2008 and last updated in 2014, the publication intends to give judges an easy-to-reference guide for e-discovery case management, based on the organization’s Cooperation Proclamation. Intended for federal and state court judges alike, the publication is now available to download on Sedona’s website.
The publication was spearheaded by senior editors Ronald Hedges and Kenneth Withers. Hedges is currently senior counsel at Dentons and was previously U.S. Magistrate judge in the District of New Jersey from 1986 to 2007.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!

As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
