Lieff Cabraser partner Annika K. Martin moderated the “Social Media Primer” at the Sedona Conference Working Group 1 Annual Meeting on November 3, 2017 at The Camby Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona. The panel covered how Web 2.0 and 3.0 have introduced numerous technical changes and consequent discovery challenges.
Panelists introduced lawyers and judges to the emergent and ongoing complexities of social media, as those media are an increasingly important source of discovery in civil litigation and have already led to significant developments within case law and governing rules.
Annika serves on the Steering Committee for Working Group 1, was the Steering Committee Liaison for the Social Media Primer, and also served as Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Rule 34 Primer that is the subject of Session 9’s Rule 34 obligations and rules panel at the Conference.
