What You Need to Know — The Impact of Electronic Documents on Everyday Business


There have been literally thousands of articles commenting on the new rules

adopted by the federal courts regarding electronic documents (such as e-mail

and spreadsheets) during litigation. Most of those articles focus on the

obligations of the parties and their counsel to preserve and produce relevant

electronic documents to the opposition. Still other articles focus on purely legal

issues such as the preservation of the attorney- client privilege in the midst of

a large production of electronic documents, and the "safe harbor" provision

included in the new rules that addresses accidentally deleted electronic

documents. Ober|Kaler's Anthony F. Vittoria discusses the effects that this new focus on electronic documents has on the everyday operation of a business.
