Are Text Messages the Next Major Source of eDiscovery Material?

We have talked in the past about the issues surrounding Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD),  from a technical  control point of view, but it now appears more likely than ever that those “private” text messages that we all thought would never see the light of day, are in fact going to be requested more and […]

We Hold Judges to a Higher Ethical Standard…But they have Lapses in Judgment as Well

Again Social Media takes a front seat in this week’s blog posting, but for reasons not expected, at least not by me.  I have been updating you on the growing impact of Social Media in litigation and eDiscovery with a focus on the information that can be gathered from it and the abuses of social […]

Why is it that the legal community can’t seem to come to grips with the role that social media plays in today’s eDiscovery litigation?  It certainly is not because it isn’t prevalent.  A recent Pew Study showed that 73 percent of all US adults engage in social media of some type.  Yet lawyers continue to […]

Juror Using Internet During Deliberations Held in Contempt – Why Lawyers Need to Pay Attention

In addition to my Social media post last week, a related topic was recently raised in a discussion and I thought it was worth reporting on.  For those lawyers that actually make it to trial, this is a topic worth paying attention to.  While the case is 2 years old, it did not garner much […]
