The panel will review these and other key questions:

- How does the permissible scope of discovery of non-party data differ from the scope of discovery of party data?
- Under what circumstances can a party identify an outside ESI source as not reasonably accessible because of undue burden or cost?
- How should parties handle the call for "sensitivity" to avoid any undue burden and interference upon nonparties with regard to confidentiality issues?
