"EDD Rules: Fact or Scary Fiction?"

What do you think about all the EDD news? Too much hype? Or information you really need? "Wherever you turn these days, there seems to be a new CLE seminar being offered or white paper being written on the 'sweeping changes' to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as they relate to the discovery of electronically stored information. "And most of them are tied together by a common thread: an alarmist air of hype. [snip] "Many e-discovery vendors would have people believe that the landscape surrounding electronic discovery has completely changed. From this author's perspective, that's a gross exaggeration of... Read more →

"E-Lawyering Requires Rethinking Technology and Law"

Great article about the new federal discovery rules, describing these changes in an understandable, even humorous way: "This changes everything." "Those three words, wafting on the familiar, buoyant tones of the actor saying them, have staying power. No survivor of the dot-com boom of the 1990s could forget William Shatner's ubiquitous ads on behalf of a certain online travel company. "Indeed, online booking did change the travel industry. When was the last time anyone had a paper ticket, or called a human travel agent just to check flight times? Buyers and sellers of books, music and news all have seen... Read more →

"How a County Attorney's Office Is Streamlining E-Discovery"

Hmm, sure sounds like this vendor might be worth investigating: "While the revised Federal Rules of Civil Procedure pertaining to electronic discovery that hit the books in December may have caused headaches for many in the legal profession, some discovered unexpected benefits. Case in point: the Nassau County Attorney's Office in New York, which implemented new technology to meet the updated requirements and found that it made e-discovery more efficient than expected. "Nassau County deployed Clearwell's Intelligence Platform -- a program applied to e-mail and electronic documents that automates the analysis, culling and review process -- in February, to comply...

"Six Hard-Learned Lessons About EDD"

New court opinion reminds both law firms & clients "to focus on e-discovery early in litigation": "With the long-anticipated revisions to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure having only recently come into effect, the sense of uncertainty that has historically surrounded electronic discovery promises to linger. While the bar will watch with keen interest as the courts begin the slow process of interpreting and applying these new rules, a recent opinion, In re NTL, Inc. Securities Litigation [PDF file; Nos. 02-Civ.-3013, -7377, 2007 WL 241344 (S.D.N.Y. Jan. 30 2007)]. serves as a pointed reminder that basic issues of electronic discovery... Read more →

"Trials & Tribulations of New Rules on EDD"

Could not understanding EDD issues -- both evidence rules & technology -- amount to malpractice? Oh, yeah, I think so, especially if the client didn't 'know' not to monkey with hard drives: "During discovery in a securities case in the Northern District of Florida, Miami attorney Michael Kreitzer's client wanted to see e-mails between two of the defendants. The defendants claimed that the hard drives on which the e-mails were stored had failed, and that all the data were lost. "Kreitzer, the chair of the litigation group at Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod in Miami, persuaded the judge to... Read more →

"E-Discovery May Target Unexpected Sources"

Yes, even more information is now subject to discovery, but really, iPods too?? "On Friday [12/1/2006], the long-discussed and much-awaited amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) went into effect. Among the elements of these amendments are changes to how electronic evidence is treated in discovery. "This issue and the changes to the rules affect most particularly counsel advising clients in e-discovery matters, but e-discovery and the treatment of information and communications -- before discovery is developed or considered, or before lawsuits are filed -- are issues critical to e-commerce, and that will become more important as this...
