A couple of days ago, two of the most recognized organizations for promoting standards within the eDiscovery industry announced an alliance. EDRM and the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) have announced a new “affinity” partnership. Among other things, that could mean savings to you if you want to be a member of both organizations.
Last year, the Information Governance Initiative (IGI), a cross-disciplinary consortium and think tank focused on advancing information governance was launched (we covered it here and here). Now, for New Yorkers and early birds to next week’s LegalTech® show, the IGI has partnered with Cardozo School of Law, in association with LegalTech New York, to bring you a one-day information governance boot camp next Monday, February 2.
In Federico et al. v. Lincoln Military Housing LLC, et al., Virginia Magistrate Judge Douglas E. Miller, concluding that the defendants had not established that the plaintiffs had acted in bad faith when failing to meet production deadlines, declined to impose “any further sanction against Plaintiffs beyond the $29,000 expense associated with their expert's production of the Facebook records”, except for a portion of the reasonable attorney's fees associated with the original motion to compel.
Believe it or not, LegalTech® New York (LTNY) starts in one week. The show can be overwhelming if you’re not prepared. A couple of weeks ago, Monica Bay wrote a terrific article in Law Technology News (Tips for Newbies to Survive LegalTech New York) which provides suggestions from several show veterans on how to get the most out of the show. That reminded me that Jane Gennarelli wrote a post on this blog three years ago with her own suggestions, so I’ve revisited it below. For best results, check out both articles and make your game plan from there!
Last week, we reported on an updated proposed opinion in California that required that attorneys in that state better be sufficiently skilled in eDiscovery, hire technical consultants or competent counsel that is sufficiently skilled, or decline representation in cases where eDiscovery is required (after reporting on the original proposed opinion back in April). Now, the California State Bar Standing Committee on Professional Responsibility and Conduct (COPRAC) has turned its attention to another relatable topic for me – blogging (by attorneys, of course).
