Here’s a Webcast that Will Discuss Important Case Law for the First Half of 2020: eDiscovery Webcasts

I know I don’t have to tell you that 2020 has been a very unusual year. But, despite court closings, there have still been several notable and important case law decisions related to eDiscovery best practices and data privacy concerns this year – as many as ever. Here’s a webcast that will tell you what you need to know about those cases to prepare for the second half of 2020 and I’m excited to lead that discussion!

On Wednesday, August 19th, HaystackID will conduct the webcast On the Case? eDiscovery Case Law Update for the First Half of 2020 at noon ET (11am CT, 9am PT).  In this presentation, industry eDiscovery authorities will cover key case law developments during the first half of 2020 to identify important rulings that may impact how you conduct discovery going forward.

Among the topics that will be covered are:

  • Can simply viewing the lock screen on a criminal defendant’s mobile device violate the Fourth Amendment?
  • How can GDPR affect the ability to put pictures of loved ones on social media?
  • How should the use of ephemeral messaging apps be managed during litigation?
  • Does the Government have 37 years to crack an iPhone to obtain evidence from it?
  • Can a party be forced to use Technology-Assisted Review?
  • What should requesting parties consider when requesting native form of production?
  • Does GDPR protect a European citizen from having to respond to discovery requests in the US?
  • Can a court still issue significant sanctions for spoliation of ESI without intent to deprive?

In addition to me, presenting experts include:

  • Ashish Prasad: Ashish is Vice President and General Counsel for HaystackID.
  • Vazantha Meyers, Esq.: Vazantha is Vice President of Managed Review for HaystackID.
  • Todd Haley: Todd is Executive Vice President and General Manager for eDiscovery Operations for HaystackID.
