E-Discovery

Overview 

In order to address and provide general information to agencies on E-Discovery topics and issues, in 2008, the DAS E-Discovery Steering Committee was formed.

Between 2008 and 2010, the committee sponsored several educational forums that were successful in raising the awareness and understanding of E-Discovery topics and issues. This committee was decommissioned in early 2011 however, the informaiton from these forums is provided below as a resource.
