Particular areas that are known to be problematic for defense experts include: erroneous allegations of knowledgeable possession; misuse of time stamps and metadata; access, control and observation in the discovery process; authentication issues; deficiencies and the lack of verification for proprietary software tools; deliberate omission or obfuscation of exculpatory evidence; and inadvertent risks resulting from the use of legitimate services. Examples in the author’s caseload are used to illustrate these inequities in an effort to encourage reform.
