In a newly released survey of 260 retired and sitting federal judges examining e-discovery, Exterro and EDRM/Duke Law discovered judges’ views concerning e-discovery and their sanctions and affirmative actions regarding e-discovery. The top causes of sanctions related to e-discovery are bad faith and poor communication, according to the survey.

While only 13 percent of surveyed judges said they’ve issued an e-discovery sanction, 74 percent said they’ve taken multiple affirmative actions, such as requiring additional conferences and issuing warnings, to solve e-discovery problems.
