ABA - Section of Litigation: The Use of Electronic Search Tools and Experts in Discovery
December 9, 2008
Teleconference and Live Audio Webcast
Recent federal court decisions have raised significant concerns for parties relying on electronic search tools for collecting and producing documents, including identifying potentially privileged documents to be withheld from production, pursuant to Rule 26(b)(5).
These decisions have garnered much attention – and concern – due to the increasingly common practice of relying upon electronic search tools to substantially cut the costs of and expedite the review and production of electronically stored information (ESI).
This teleconference and live audio webcast will help shed light on what these, and other, decisions mean for the use of electronic search tools and the need for “e-discovery experts” in litigation and offer some important guidelines on how to satisfy counsel’s discovery and ethical obligations when preserving, collecting, and producing ESI.
Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola, United States District Court for the District of Columbia, is one of the panelists. David Cross is the organizer and a panelist.
