Relativity is presenting a webinar today, 14 December, called 2017 data discovery: celebrity lessons on litigation, legal ethics, and eDiscovery.
2017 has brought us some eDiscovery cases which have made the news as much for the involvement of some celebrity as for the eDiscovery content. Cases involving the likes of Taylor Swift and Lynyrd Skynyrd draw attention to principles which might otherwise go unnoticed.
David Horrigan of Relativity is moderating a webinar today, 14 December, which considers these and other case law developments in 2017. The objectives of the webinar include:
- What you should – and should not – do if you or your client suddenly become a news or social media celebrity
- Understanding your legal obligations to preserve evidence for litigation
- Knowing the potential pitfalls with data sources, including audio files and text messages
- Learning ways to protect and avoid waiving the attorney-client privilege
The speakers are US Chief District Judge Joy Flowers Conti, Reed Smith partner David Cohen, and Michael Kump of Kinsella Weitzman Iser Kump & Aldisert.
Some of the same themes are covered in David Horrigan’s article 2017: the year in data discovery caselaw.
