2021 has already ushered in a number of eDiscovery developments that clients and counsel should be aware of. These developments include new trends regarding the increasing incidence of court-ordered forensic exams, whether privilege log deficiencies truly merit in camera review, and counsel’s ethical obligation to disclose client spoliation events. This program will cover cases addressing these topics and spotlight recommendations for addressing the issues.
Topics covered include court decisions addressing:
- Whether traditional family production practices should apply to communications that reference hyperlinked documents
- When unilateral relevance redactions are appropriate
- The circumstances when parties must produce relevant Slack data
- ESI spoliation sanctions
- The interplay between procedural and evidentiary rules in connection with spoliation motions
