Speaker, myLawCLE, the Federal Bar Association, and the Palm Beach County Bar Association, "E-Discovery: Subpoenas & Non-Party Production Issues"


February 22, 2017 | 2:00 PM - February 22, 2017 | 4:00 PM EST

The decision to pursue ESI from a non-party via subpoena may result in a lengthy, expensive, and sometimes onerous process for both the non-party and the requesting party. The non-party may incur exorbitant costs associated with responding to the subpoena, the requesting party may wait months or even years to receive the ESI, and the issue may end up being submitted to the court via a protracted motion process. This live webinar helps practitioners use the provisions of recently amended Fed. R. Civ. P. 45 to most effectively and cost-efficiently pursue third party ESI by subpoena. It also explains how a non-party can use the protections built into Rule 45 to effectively comply with, and object to third-party subpoenas. This live webinar also provides practical considerations for practitioners on either side of a non-party subpoena to utilize in a manner that will help them shift some or all of their costs, including attorneys’ fees, onto the other party.

Key topics to be discussed:

    • Introduction to Rule 45
    • Effectively Seeking ESI from Third Parties to Avoid Undue Burden and Cost-Shifting
    • Responding and Objecting to the Subpoena Seeking ESI
  • The Courts and Cost-Shifting
