12 Days of eDiscovery sung in memory of Gayle O’Connor

Some of us involved in eDiscovery were asked to take part in a rendition of The 12 Days of Christmas repurposed as 12 Days of eDiscovery. The production was in memory of Gayle O’Connor who died in October, and was done to benefit Grace House, a New Orleans charity which provides substance-use disorder treatment to women. Gayle was a supporter of Grace House.

The production was organised by Kelly Twigger, CEO of eDiscovery Assistant and Principal at ESI Attorneys, and by Maribel Rivera of Maribel Rivera Marketing & Events, David Horrigan of Relativity, and Nikki McCallum of Lighthouse.

The singing participants were Honorable James Francis, Cat Casey of DISCO, Jared Coseglia of Tru Staffing Partners, Stephanie Clerkin, CEDS, RCA of Korein Tillery, Kenya Dixon of Empire Technologies Risk Management Group, Peg Gianuca of the Walt Disney Company, David Horrigan of Relativity, Ari Kaplan of Ari Kaplan Advisors, Nikki MacCallum of Lighthouse, Dean Monserrat of Maribel Rivera Marketing & Events, Joy Murao of Practice Aligned Resources, Scott Milner of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, Ryan O’Leary, Esq. of IDC, Debbie Reynolds of Debbie Reynolds Consulting LLC, and me.

You know those amazingly tuneful ensemble videos which people have been doing since lockdown began, everyone coming in on time and in tune? This was, well, different to those, but no less enjoyable to put together – and “put together” is the right description when we were each in our separate locations, separated by internet lag. Maribel Rivera did a very good job of stitching all the bits together.

David Horrigan of Relativity has written about Gayle and about the video here. Doug Austin’s post is called 12 Days of eDiscovery: eDiscovery Good Tidings.

Many thanks to the organisers for inviting me to take part. Quite apart from anything else, these are people I haven’t seen for over a year, and it was really good to catch up in this way.

Here it is:
