Protection of Confidential Information During Discovery, Motion Practice, and Trial

Featuring the Hon. Ronald J. Hedges, (Ret.), New York, NY

Information that is confidential in nature (such as a trade secret or of a personal nature) can be relevant in a given action, be the subject of discovery, and used in motion practice or at trial. What rules and standards are applicable when discovery of confidential information is sought? What protections are available to the producing party? What governs the use of confidential information when filed in support or in opposition to a motion? And what protections are available when the information might be used at trial? This Gavel Talks will address these questions for the benefit of judges, attorneys, and law students.
