Computer Forensics Expert: The Sedona Conference Proclamation: December, 2014
Sedona Conference published the third edition of the "The Sedona Conference Cooperation Proclamation: Resources for the Judiciary."
The third edition updates case law and court rules and makes references to secondary sources. There are new sections, including a section on judicial ethics. This section specifically addresses whether a judge should 'friend' or 'connect' with an attorney on social media or engage in Internet research.
The burden of producing electronic evidence has been increasing. The Sedona Conference (TSC) proclamations are intended to provide state and federal judges with a framework for managing civil cases involving electronic evidence.
Previous editions of the Proclamation where published in November 2012 and in August of 2011.
Based in Phoenix, Az., TSC was founded in 1997 by Richard G. Braman.
