Know When to Hire a Computer Expert Witness
Experts are becoming increasingly more important and involved in the litigation process. Beyond traditional expert testimony, expert consultation with litigators is now vital in what were once simple aspects of litigation, aspects now complicated by advances in technology. A prime example is the complexity introduced by electronic discovery. Case after case (Qualcomm, Oracle, Microsoft, etc.) demonstrates how attorneys' failures to grapple with that new complexity can result in severe consequences, ranging from sanctions to adverse inferences and worse.
Columbus Bar has the education you need to understand how hiring a computer expert witness can make your case. On Friday, November 14, Columbus Bar presents “When to Hire a Computer Expert Witness.” The 3.0 hour CLE seminar features Matthew Curtain, founder of Interhack Corporation, a professional services firm with practice areas in information assurance and forensic computing, and forensic computing expert Christopher Shiflet.
This CLE will explain how experts can be used in litigation, both as consultants and for testimony. It will include interactive examples taken from the practice of a forensic computer scientist, and help a practitioner to understand when an expert can be most effective in furthering a case. It will also explain how discovery rules differ when experts are used in different roles.
