E-Discovery Alert: Court Provides Essential Guidance Concerning the Production of Electronic Materials in a Recent Decision


While the electronic discovery movement has spawned a wealth of resources purporting to provide “best practices” for complying with discovery obligations imposed by the electronic age, affirmations of these practices from the bench have been paltry to date. This scarcity of guidance has left practitioners in state and federal courts to their own devices in implementing reasonable electronic discovery practices and procedures. However, Judge Edward Harrington of the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts provides essential guidance concerning the production of electronic materials in a recent decision, Dahl v. Bain Capital Partners, LLC.1

This decision is required reading for any Massachusetts litigant.
