E-Discovery in Antitrust Lawsuits and Government Investigations
February 26, 2008
Businesses subject to antitrust investigations by government agencies and civil lawsuits must comply with the federal e-discovery rules amendments that became effective last December. Electronic information—email, metadata, and backup files—can be critical evidence in proving or disproving anti-competitive conduct.
With strict time limits to respond to requests for documents in government investigations and litigation, counsel must understand all of the requirements—and the finer subtleties coming from court interpretations of the rules—under the new federal amendments. Failure to strictly comply can result in huge strategic disadvantages—and court sanctions.
This teleconference will review the new e-discovery rules amendments, how they impact document retention, management, and destruction—and how attorneys can ensure full compliance with the latest requirements in government investigations and civil litigation.
Jeane Thomas is one of the panelists in this teleconference.
