The Role of Special Masters in Electronic Discovery

US Supreme Court - The Authority of Law
Listen to Jonathan Redgrave from the Am Law 100 law firm Nixon Peabody explain the special role which Special Masters can play in electronic discovery matters. What is the basis of the Special Master in an electronic discovery case? When do you hire one? How do you hire a Special Master? What exactly does a Special Master do? Who pays for a Special Master? How does a Special Master impact the rights of the parties in litigation? Jonathan Redgrave has recently authored an article on this topic with the Hon. Shira A. Scheindlin entitled

Special Masters And E-Discovery: The Intersection of Two Recent Provisions To The Federal Rules Of Civil Procedure.
Since the founding of Redgrave Daley Ragan & Wagner LLP in October of 2005, Jonathan has regularly addressed issues involved in the discovery of electronically stored information, as well as issues concerning records retention and privacy policies and practices for clients.

He has authored or co-authored numerous publications and speaks frequently at national and international seminars on issues related to electronic information, records management and litigation.
