We are in an era of constantly changing and “improving” communications technologies. Electronic access to judicial records and proceedings has the prospect of furthering transparency of the ‘Third Branch’ of government and increasing public trust. On the other hand, there may be times when secrecy or confidentiality mandate that access be restricted. A set of “Best Practices” for confidential and access were issued by the Sedona Conference in 2005. Are these still useful? Does technology require a new approach to balancing access with secrecy or confidentiality? Join us for a day-long presentation on where we were, where we are, and where we may be.
