Mastering Remote Advocacy – Managing Challenges and Embracing Opportunities
In the wake of the COVID-19 we find ourselves embracing remote advocacy and the inherent unique challenges presented in connection with this new world. One major change is that many of our hearings will now be remote video hearings in courtrooms. A well-prepared attorney who is familiar with the mechanics and ground rules of navigating this new remote working environment will be armed with the tools they need to make their remote hearings highly effective.
Judge Segal, former chief magistrate judge of the central district of California, will answer questions from moderator and audience regarding third party discovery. In particular, the discussion will focus on “custody, possession or control” and when documents are in the legal control of a party or in the custody of a third party; what type of relationship is necessary to show “legal control”; what a third party must do to object to discovery; what a party must do if he or she wants to object to third party discovery; and what are the court’s concerns when third party discovery is at issue. Judge Segal will also discuss enforcement of third-party discovery.
