Once again, ABA Journal is working on their annual list of the 100 best legal blogs, and they would like your advice on which blogs you think they should include. If you have a favorite law blog (or “blawg”, get it?), now is the time to nominate it for recognition in the ABA Journal Annual Blawg 100.
When EDRM announced eDiscovery Daily as an Education partner back in March, EDRM agreed to publish our daily posts on the EDRM site and it has been great to publish our content via the leading standards organization for the eDiscovery market! However, another part of our agreement was for eDiscovery Daily to provide exclusive content to EDRM, including articles sharing real-life examples of organizations using EDRM resources in their own eDiscovery workflows. Now, our first participant profile is available on the EDRM site and we’re looking for other organizations to share their EDRM experiences!
A month ago, we discussed the Discovery of Electronically Stored Information (DESI) workshop and the papers describing research or practice presented at the workshop that was held earlier this month and we covered one of those papers a couple of weeks later. Today, let’s cover another paper from the study.
As noted yesterday, LegalTech West Coast 2015 (LTWC) is happening this week and eDiscovery Daily is reporting about the latest eDiscovery trends being discussed at the show. There’s still time to check out the show if you’re in the San Francisco area with a number of sessions (both paid and free) available and at least 58 exhibitors providing information on their products and services. Here are eDiscovery and Information Governance related sessions in the main conference tracks.

We will provide a description each day of some of the sessions related to eDiscovery to give you a sense of the topics being covered. Here are eDiscovery-related sessions in the main conference tracks.
Ever wonder why some documents are identified as duplicates and others are not, even though they appear to be identical? Leave it to Craig Ball to explain it in plain terms.
A couple of weeks ago, we covered the software “mashup” from Rob Robinson’s Complex Discovery site, which is an excellent resource for discovery and general legal technology articles (and a daily blogger’s best friend). Last week, Rob released his worldwide eDiscovery services overview for 2014 to 2019.
As we approach our country’s independence day on Saturday, we thought we would take a look at how that relates to electronic discovery and ask this question: Do you feel like you’re frequently dependent on others to accomplish the tasks you need to complete within your discovery process? If so, here’s some ways you can declare your eDiscovery independence!
A couple of weeks ago, we discussed the Discovery of Electronically Stored Information (DESI) workshop and the papers describing research or practice presented at the workshop that was held earlier this month. Today, let’s cover one of those papers.
I love the TV show Forensic Files – it amazes me how many different ways that law enforcement entities have to identify, catch and convict criminals. With that in mind, here are a couple of stories that show how expanded sources of ESI can be used as evidence in criminal cases.
Rob Robinson’s Complex Discovery site is an excellent resource for discovery and general legal technology articles which we’ve profiled several times before. In the past two years, we have covered his compilations of various eDiscovery market estimates for 2012 to 2017 and for 2013 to 2018. Now, he has released his worldwide eDiscovery software overview for 2014 to 2019.
From time to time, we’ve covered not only Federal eDiscovery rules, but also eDiscovery rules within the states as well. One of the states that has been slow to undertake any eDiscovery rulemaking activity is Colorado. However, on June 4, the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado did publish new Guidelines Addressing the Discovery of Electronically Stored Information as well as a Checklist for Rule 26(f) Meet-and-Confer Regarding Electronically Stored Information (ESI).
If you think the NSA is tough, hell hath no fury like a suspicious spouse scorned.
Back in January, we discussed the Discovery of Electronically Stored Information (DESI, not to be confused with Desi Arnaz, pictured above) workshop and its call for papers describing research or practice for the DESI VI workshop that was held last week at the University of San Diego as part of the 15th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence & Law (ICAIL 2015). Now, links to those papers are available on their web site.
With big data becoming bigger than ever, the ability for organizations to apply effective data analytics within information governance and electronic discovery disciplines has become more important than ever. With that in mind, one law firm has created a new role that might catch on with other firms and corporations – the role of Chief Data Scientist.
The eDiscovery marketplace grew in 2014 with total software revenue reaching $1.8 billion worldwide, according to Gartner’s annual Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery Software report, released last week.
According to Norton Rose Fulbright’s Litigation Trends Annual Survey for 2015 released last week, companies in the United States continue to deal with, and spend more on litigation. From an eDiscovery standpoint, the survey showed that more than half of respondents preserve and collect data from employee mobile devices and use technology assisted review, and a clear majority of respondents still rely on self-preservation to fulfill preservation obligations for at least some cases.
Craig Ball’s Ball in Your Court blog is always an excellent read, even when he writes it “across the pond” over in London. His latest post discusses how “fighting the last war” will eventually cost you when you come across an “e-savvy” opponent.
Last Friday, we discussed a report in The New York Times that discussed the unwillingness of most big US law firms to discuss or even acknowledge data breaches. But, despite the unwillingness to disclose breach information, more and more law firms are apparently purchasing or considering the purchase of cyber liability insurance to protect against potential data breaches.
In February, we discussed a report about data breach trends in 2014 and how those trends compared to data breaches in 2013. That report provided breach trends for several industries, including the healthcare industry, which suffered the most breaches last year (possibly because stolen health records are apparently worth big money). But, according to a recent report, you won’t see any trends for law firms because the legal profession almost never publicly discloses a breach.
