If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know that we have frequently covered announcements by EDRM that range from announcements about new practical tools (such as those here, here and here) to announcements about new partnerships (such as this one here). We love EDRM because they regularly have something interesting to announce which gives us plenty of topic ideas for this blog. Now, EDRM’s latest announcement includes eDiscovery Daily as we are now an Education partner of EDRM!

As I noted a couple of weeks ago on this blog, LegalTech® New York 2015 (LTNY) earlier this month had three free judges panel sessions that were CLE or Ethics credit eligible, that included several notable judges, including Judge Andrew J. Peck. These sessions covered the judges’ review of top preservation decisions for 2014, their thoughts on the proposed FRCP amendments and their opinions of what’s wrong with discovery today. In each of those sessions, you heard these questions from Judge Peck at one point during the session.
