The Changing Landscape of Electronic Discovery
As we approach the five-year anniversary of E-Discovery Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, much has changed since the earlier days of electronic discovery. Corporate electronic data is growing at astounding rates with technology advances occurring at an equal pace. Judicial rulings continue to define proper procedure. Corporations continue to wrestle with implementation of those same procedures.
As part of a continuing effort to bring the Ohio legal community essential education, the Columbus Bar and PACO are co-sponsoring a special CLE institute focusing on the current state of electronic discovery. The September 15, full-day event, “The Changing Landscape of Electronic Discovery,” hosts faculty Douglass Matthews of Vorys Sater Seymour and Pease, Mason Evans of Porter Wright Morris & Arthur, and Andrew Drake of Nationwide Insurance. Panelists will include Thomas Hill of Kegler Brown Hill & Ritter, David Porter of EDiscover-e, Jeffery Fuller of Battelle, Julie Brown of Vorys, JoAnn Fair of Wendy’s/Arby’s Group, Tim Hooks of Chester Willcox & Saxbe, Nicole Randall of Porter Wright, and Brian Webb of National Investment Managers Inc.
The event includes topics such as: A look at recent case law and the effect on electronic discovery process; A review of the latest and ESI Filtering and Review Technologies; The rise of Social Networking, and “The Cloud”; “Reasonable Inquiry” in The Wake of Qualcomm v. Broadcom; The importance of team communication in controlling the cost and risk of electronic discovery. The final session will be a mock witness examination designed to exemplify some of the perils of performing self-collection.
