Electronic Discovery Resources

The Economist recently published Electronic discovery: Of bytes and briefs. To summarize:

As technology changes cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way people communicate, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 legal system is stumbling to keep up. The “discovery” process, whereby both parties to a lawsuit share relevant documents with each ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r, used to involve physically handing over a few boxes of papers. But now that most documents are created and stored electronically, it is mostly about retrieving files from computers. This has two important consequences...

First, e-discovery is more intrusive than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 traditional sort...

Second, e-discovery is more burdensome than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 old sort.


I think I first mentioned ediscovery last year in Forensics Warnings from CIO Magazine. I am acquainting myself with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 intrusiveness and burden of this process in preparation for some new work. The article mentioned cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Institute for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Advancement of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 American Legal System (IAALS), which published Navigating cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hazards of E-Discovery: A Manual for Judges in State Courts Across cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Nation. This is a free .pdf. I am exceptionally interested in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir next report:

Later this summer, we will release a publication on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 implications of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se changes for America’s businesses.

The IAALS article also mentions Suggested Protocol for
Discovery of Electronically Stored Information (“ESI”)
(.pdf), a Maryland document that elaborates on ediscovery.

RB,

There is a big article on this in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ISSA Journal for May 2007.

We also have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 issues related to how cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fourth Amendment is invoked. Take a hard drive, for example. To cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 users, it looks like a file cabinet, where maybe each user has a lock if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y have a password. To a forensic specialist, it's just a pile of bits.

This law blog discusses cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 recent case where this came up.

It can be very simple and low cost for small business to improve cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir eDiscovery management. The press and industry make it sound too complex for owner managers.

The main issue eDiscovery is searching cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 archives later to retrieve cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 data, and managing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 physical media library. The same with removable drives, you never know what’s on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m.

There is a $39 product called Datacatch Librarian www.datacatch.com that catalogs backup and archive removable media; it basically extends cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Windows file management system so that you are seamlessly searching for files stored on removable media with standard Windows tools. What’s good about this is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is nothing new to learn.

So you can take a $20 CD/DVD rack with Datacatch and for less than $100 have a basic data archive management solution which does assist with meeting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new Federal Rules on eDiscovery for small businesses and home offices.

Richard: This post remains relevant and timely because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Institute for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Advancement of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 American Legal System is now releasing (or re-releasing) its report with advice to businesses on how to cope with e-discovery -- a topic that grows in importance with each passing month.

Knowing e-discovery is inevitable, I argue an enterprise can use technology proactively to make its e-records more benign. It can state over and over in all its records, "Our intent is to be a good actor, and if you don't think we are, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n please let us know immediately." What do you think? --Ben
