Whether it’s been the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial or the Alex Jones/Sandy Hook trial, or other recent high-profile cases, eDiscovery drama has been in the national headlines lately. Tom O’Connor and I will discuss eDiscovery Drama in the headlines tomorrow on the Virtual Lunch with Leaders!
The Virtual Lunch with Leaders is conducted weekly at noon PT (3pm ET, 2pm CT), hosted by the San Diego Paralegal Association (SDPA) and ably moderated by the indefatigable Sheila Grela. Tomorrow, Sheila, Tom and I will discuss those recent cases in the news, other eDiscovery disaster stories and best practices to avoid your own disasters.
Whether you’re a paralegal, an attorney working on litigation or a provider (I prefer that term over “vendor” – “vendors” are order takers, “providers” are consultative) supporting the attorney with the litigation, you have an ethical obligation to understand the issues associated with this thing called “eDiscovery”. While most eDiscovery failures don’t make the news, they still reflect badly on the parties who mismanaged discovery for their clients. It will be interesting and fun to discuss some of the most high-profile examples with Tom and Sheila tomorrow! Join us here at noon PT (3pm ET, 2pm CT)!
So, what do you think? Are you afraid of mistakes leading to eDiscovery drama in your cases? If so, join us tomorrow! Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
