Duke/EDRM workshop highlights – Bill Dimm of Clustify, who participated in Duke’s recent EDRM Workshop, offers highlights from the meeting.

Biggest e-discovery challenges facing plaintiffs’ attorneys – Tom O’Connor has prepared a five-part series on the e-discovery challenges facing plaintiffs’ attorneys, drawing on answers to questions he posed to Craig Ball (consultant, ESI expert, Special Master, former plaintiffs’ attorney and author of the Ball in Your Court blog), Ariana Tadler (Managing Partner at Milberg Tadler Phillips Grossman LLP & Founding Principal at Meta-e Discover), Bob Eisenberg (Director, eDiscovery & Information Governance at Larson Security LLC and Program Director at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law eDiscovery Professional Certificate Program), Drew Ashby (Wrongful Death and Catastrophic Injury Trial Attorney at The Cooper Firm), and Jean Martin (head of the Morgan & Morgan Complex Litigation Group in Wilmington, North Carolina). The parts are:

A CTO’s take on machine learning – Todd Rebner of Cyleron offers a definition of machine learning. The term was coined in 1959. Machine learning, he says, “couples algorithms with typically vast amounts of data to improve the accuracy of the developed models.” He goes on to describe several forms of machine learning: classification; clustering; regression; supervised learning; unsupervised learning; semi-supervised learning; and reinforcement learning.


CCPA impact on advertising – Michelle Tyde and John Brigagliano of Kilpatrick Townsend offer 10 key facts about how the CCPA will impact brands’ data practices.

Two more CCPA Assembly amendments approved – Alysa Zeltzer Hutnik and Alex Schneider of Kelley Drye report that the California Assembly recently approved two bills to amend the CCPA, which move to the state Senate, and list the status of other CCPA amendments, in reverse chron order:

Bill Kelley Drye description Status
25 Changes CCPA to not cover collection of personal information from job applicants, employees, contractors, or agents. On docket for full Assembly vote
846 Provides certainty to businesses that certain CCPA prohibitions would not apply to loyalty or rewards programs. On docket for full Assembly vote
1202 Data broker registration legislation would require data brokers to honor consumer opt-outs and other rights afforded by the CCPA. On docket for full Assembly vote
1146 Exempts vehicle information retained or shared for purposes of warranty or recall-related vehicle repair. Approved 5/23/2019
873 Broadens definition of “deidentified”. Clarifies that “personal information” includes information that “is reasonably capable of being associated with” a consumer or household. Approved 5/22/2019
981 Exempts insurance institutions, agents, and insurance-support organizations from complying with CCPA. Approved 5/22/2019
1564 Requires consumers to submit CCPA requests to businesses via toll free number or email address and physical address. Approved 5/13/2019
874 Streamlines definition of “publicly available” to mean information lawfully made available from federal, state, or local government records. Also seeks to amend definition of “personal information” to exclude deidentified or aggregate consumer information. Approved 5/9/2019
1355 Exempts deidentified or aggregate consumer information from definition of personal information, among other clarifying amendments. Approved 5/9/2019

CCPA Senate amendment stalled – Jason Priebe of Seyfarth Shaw notes that California Senate Bill 561 has been held in committee and placed on suspense. The bill would have expanded the private cause under CCPA to include any violation of the CCPA and would have eliminated the 30-day cure period for alleged violations.

COPPA remains FTC enforcement priority – Bonnie Yeomans, Stephanie Kapinos and Kevin Milewski of Proskauer wrote that the Federal Trade Commission continues to make enforcement of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) a priority. They give three recent examples and suggest that next up for the FTC may be IoT-connected and voice-activated electronic devices and toys.

COPPA and Amazon’s Echo Dot Kids Edition – Jeremy Meisinger of Foley Hoag reports that a coalition of consumer groups has submitted a complaint to the FTC arguing that Amazon has violated COPPA in various ways with its Echo Dot Kids Edition, notably by providing insufficient privacy notices, offering an insufficiently stringent parental notification process, and making available inadequate options for deletion of personal information collected by the device.

Washington state expands data breach notification law – Daniel Moses of Jackson Lewis writes that Washington’s governor signed HB 1071, significantly expanding the state’s data breach notification law, RCW 19.255.02, et seq. The new law shortens the deadline to provide notice of breach, expands the definition of “personal information”, and adds notice requirements for affected consumers and the state attorney general. In an earlier post, Moses discussed the new provisions in greater detail.

Nevada legislature passes online privacy notice statute update – Robert Bowman, Ephraim Hintz, and David Strauss of Husch Blackwell report that the Nevada legislature passed Senate Bill 220, a bill revising provisions relating to internet privacy. The authors review Nevada’s existing law and discuss of the legislation will modify it.

GDPR for litigators – Allen & Overy has published a short guide on the GDPR specifically for litigators.

GDPR costs and consequences – Truth on the Market author Alec Stapp goes into the costs and consequences of the GDRP at it turns one, including cases and fines, unintended consequences organized by GDPR article, compliance costs, and impact on small and medium sized business.

Data breach class actions in Australia – Jones Day has published a 12-page white paper that discusses the rise of data breach class actions in Australia.

EU-Japan data transfer agreement – Sam Hold of AccessData reports that the EU and Japan have begun to implement an EU adequacy decision on Japan that creates the world’s largest area of safe data flows.


Information Governance World spring issue – InfoGov World has published the Spring 2019 issue of Information Governance World.


ABA Journal takes note of law firm legal tech efforts – Anna Persky writes in an ABA Journal article that in the last couple of years large and specialty law firms increasingly have been developing their own tools and software to better serve clients.

C u in court – Sharon Nelson of Sensei Enterprises, pointing to a Virginia Lawyers Weekly article, notes that in more than a dozen states public defenders and court administrators send text messages to defendants, reminding them to show up for scheduled hearings. Spokane WA public defenders are going the extra mile; they also text defendants to let them know there is a daycare facility inside the courthouse where defendants’ children can stay while defendants are in court.

New law firm tech lab in Berlin – Freshfields announced that it has opened its first Freshfields Lab in Berlin, Germany. The goal: the firm is “working collaboratively with clients in the space to develop technology-based solutions that tackle the challenges and opportunities stemming from digitization across the legal sector and clients’ own industry sectors.”


Recent e-discovery decisions

5/2/2019 – U.S. Magistrate Judge Lois Bloom issued a report and recommendation in response to a motion that “presents a cautionary tale about how not to conduct discovery in federal court.” Finding a fraud upon the Court, the judge used the court’s inherent powers as the basis for recommending that plaintiffs’ motion for sanctions be granted and that a default judgment should be entered against three of the defendants (the H&H defendants). From the beginning of discovery, the H&H proffered serial representations to the Court, many of which have been proven to be false. They repeatedly gave the Court numbers of responsive documents that did not add up; used search terms and ran searches designed to fail; attempted to shift blame to their prior counsel; failed to produce documents in accordance with court order; and intentionally withheld three categories of relevant documents from production. These actions freed two key witnesses to commit perjury at his deposition. Abbot Laboratories v. Adelphai Supply USA, 15 CV 5826 (CBA) (LB) (E.D.N.Y. May 2, 2019).

How We Use Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

We use cookies and other tracking technologies to:

  1. Improve the user experience on our Website and Services;

  3. Track anonymous site usage; and
  4. Permit connectivity with social media networks to permit content sharing.

There are different types of cookies and other technologies used our Website, notably:

  • "Session cookies" - These cookies only last as long as your online session, and disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser (like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Safari).
  • "Persistent cookies" - These cookies stay on your computer or device after your browser has been closed and last for a time specified in the cookie. We use persistent cookies when we need to know who you are for more than one browsing session. For example, we use them to remember your preferences for the next time you visit.
  • "Web Beacons/Pixels" - Some of our web pages and emails may also contain small electronic images known as web beacons, clear GIFs or single-pixel GIFs. These images are placed on a web page or email and typically work in conjunction with cookies to collect data. We use these images to identify our users and user behavior, such as counting the number of users who have visited a web page or acted upon one of our email digests.
