Resolving E-Discovery Disputes Efficiently in Arbitration and in Court
JAMS/NYSBA Commercial and Federal Litigation Section
Annual CLE Program
How do you ensure that claimants and respondents both receive adequate pretrial discovery while still retaining the benefits of arbitration? What can you do when the judge assigned to your lawsuit is not knowledgeable about e-discovery? Two panels presenting the views of experienced litigators, judges, neutrals, and e-discovery experts will address these and related topics to help you ensure that the discovery phase of your arbitral proceeding or courtroom case is handled effectively and efficiently.
This timely continuing legal education program will also provide an opportunity for you to raise your own concerns and hear the experts’ suggestions regarding best practices for effective and efficient e-discovery both in arbitration and in court. There will be a cocktail reception following the program.
Sponsored by JAMS and the Commercial and Federal Litigation Section of the New York State Bar Association.

Panel 1: E-Discovery Issues in Arbitration
- Hon. Frank Maas (Ret.), Panel Moderator, JAMS
- Prof. Michael Fox, J.D., Mount Saint Mary College
- Stephen P. Younger, Esq., Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP
- Roger Maldonado, Esq., Smith, Gambrell & Russell, LLP
This Panel will address the unique issues presented by e-discovery in arbitral settings, such as the effect of streamlined discovery rules, the frequent lack of face-to-face prehearing discovery conferences, and the difficulty of obtaining third-party discovery. The panel will also provide tips that you can immediately use in your arbitrations.
Panel 2: Use of Special Masters and E-Discovery Mediators in Connection with Court Litigation
- Mark Berman, Esq., Panel Moderator, Ganfer & Shore LLP
- Maura Grossman, Esq., Maura Grossman Law
- Hon. Frank Maas (Ret.), JAMS
- Special Referee Jeremy Feinberg, New York State Supreme Court, County of New York
This panel will discuss the increasing use of court-appointed special masters and e-discovery mediators in courtroom litigation. Among the topics the panel will address are: Use of court resources to resolve e-discovery disputes? Should you or the court use such an expert and, if so, how? What are the ground rules for communications between the appointing judge and a special master? Should sessions with a special master be stenographically recorded? What can an e-discovery mediator, whether a court employee or privately retained, do to help the parties and how do you find one?
