Is It Permissible to Redact Irrelevant Information in Documents Produced in the Discovery Process?
If you can convince the courts you might be able to.
Privileged information has long been allowed to be redacted from documents if not relevant to the litigation when the material has been requested by another party. Prior to a discovery request for information that may be irrelevant, it is crucial to know if a court may force production of documents in their entirety that the producing party does not want disclosed to the opposing side or the public. This white paper reviews case law when dealing with these situations.
