The Sedona Conference recently published its Commentary on Rule 45 Subpoenas to Non-Parties, Second Edition (Commentary.) The Commentary is a project of the Sedona Conference Working Group on Electronic Document Retention and Production (WG1), and it is an update to the 2008 edition. It provides pertinent updates based on amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and “significant case law development.”

The Sedona Conference is a nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c)(3) research and educational institute “dedicated to the advanced study of law and policy in the areas of antitrust law, complex litigation, and intellectual property rights.” “Since 2003, the Conference has published a number of documents concerning [electronically stored information (ESI).]” This blog post introduces some of the rule changes identified in the Commentary and will be the first in a series of posts focusing on non-party discovery in Indiana, both from the state and federal practice perspectives.
