In its ongoing effort to provide current and relevant updates regarding developments in the field of e-discovery, our staff would like to recommend a reading of the Sidley Austin LLP firm’s current newsletter written by its in-house “E-Discovery Task Force” group.
This group from Sidley Austin LLP works to stay abreast of the shifting legal landscape surrounding e-discovery.
The most current update addresses the following recent developments and court decisions involving e-discovery issues:
1. A Northern District of Illinois ruling sanctioning a defendant company for failing to conduct an adequate search for relevant documents in a related company’s possession;
2. A District of New Jersey decision ordering an adverse inference instruction against the plaintiff for deleting his Facebook account after he had been ordered to make the account available to the defendants;
3. A District of Colorado decision imposing sanctions under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 16(f)(1) for inappropriate conduct by the EEOC that delayed discovery and cost the defendant time and money; and
4. A New Jersey federal court decision denying a protective order or cost shifting sought in response to a party’s sixty-seven term search request.
Our staff believes that this monthly updated newsletter would be a great addition to your organization’s e-discovery related resource reading library.
Please pass this along to the in-house counsel and/or those information technology and regulatory and compliance focused professionals in your organization.
