The COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t stopped the flow of important and impactful eDiscovery and data privacy related case law decisions! Or other cases, for that matter. Tomorrow’s inaugural monthly EDRM webinar of cases covered by this blog discusses six key cases related to potential sanctions for spoliation of electronically stored information (ESI), as well as key cases related to data privacy and rights of litigants in civil and criminal cases.
Tomorrow, EDRM will host the webcast Important eDiscovery Case Law Decisions for July 2020 at 1:00pm ET (12:00pm CT, 10:00am PT). In this webinar, you’ll learn about key cases related to potential sanctions for spoliation of electronically stored information (ESI), as well as key cases related to data privacy and rights of litigants in civil and criminal cases.
