California’s Electronic Discovery Act was signed into law on June 29, 2009, establishing procedures for parties to discover electronically stored information (“ESI”) from opposing parties for use as evidence in state court actions.
“Electronically stored information” means information that is stored in any electronic medium. [California Code of Civil Procedure (“Cal CCP”), Section 2016.020(e)]
As such, ESI may include, among other things, social media, blogs, text messages, emails and other electronic files that exist on computers, cell phones, and/or other electronic devices.
