Extract from Terry Harrison’s article “eDiscovery in SA – Changing the Uniform Rules, POPIA, hosting in the cloud, and child adoption in SA”
Firstly, sincere thanks to all who sent work anniversary wishes and congratulations – very much appreciated and hard to believe it is 5 years!
I thought we should take a look and see where we are in SA on these matters. Changing the Uniform Rules to incorporate eDiscovery has been and still is, as regular readers know, my mission. It is now almost 5 years since I embarked on the journey and more than 2 years since I presented to the High Court Committee of the Rules Board. You will also know that with the help of the Law Society of SA (as was!) we drafted simple brief amendments and submitted them to the Rules Board and then we waited and waited.
