Most Famous eDiscovery Case

Here’s The Most Famous eDiscovery Case: eDiscovery Trends

My latest blog post for IPRO’s blog discusses the biggest misconception about the most famous eDiscovery case ever.

There’s a case that is ubiquitous within eDiscovery circles. Its presence is everywhere when you look at eDiscovery solutions. Many people think of it as an energy industry case, but it’s actually a financial services case – one that helped inspire a new Federal law that enacted a comprehensive reform of business financial practices. It’s the literal “poster child” litigation case to illustrate what features an eDiscovery solution should provide.

It’s not just the most famous eDiscovery case, it’s also partly the inspiration for the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which was passed by Congress in 2002 in response to multiple financial scandals involving large conglomerates. That’s one of three examples of notable US financial legislation. Not to mention there are several US financial regulatory agencies financial services companies are bound by as well. Financial services is a highly regulated industry and it has unique use cases for discovery.

So, what are the use cases for financial services companies? And what is the most famous eDiscovery case ever? You can find out on IPRO’s blog here. It’s just one extra click!  😉 Hint: It begins with “E”!

So, what do you think? Are you part of a financial services organization dealing with discovery challenges? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
