Companies historically have had little success in withholding non-relevant, often highly confidential information from production in litigation if the information is contained in otherwise relevant documents. Turning such information over can feel like creating a road map for the plaintiffs' attorneys' next lawsuit.
However, the recent amendment to Rule 26 may have breathed new life into the concept of redaction for non-relevance. Aside from non-relevance, redactions can (and sometimes must) be employed to protect other types of confidential information from dissemination, including designated confidential material filed with the court and personally identifiable information (PII).
