Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS)

Insight into where e-discovery, information governance cybersecurity, and digital transformation are heading – who is doing what now or in the future, what works and what doesn’t, and what people wish they could do but can’t – gleaned from recent publications

EDRM May 15-17 Annual Workshop – The Duke/EDRM workshop and forum is an annual gathering of highly motivated judges, practitioners, consultants, service providers, and software vendors who collaborate on exciting and challenging ediscovery and other IT projects that impact the industry and the profession. Join us in an intimate environment on Duke Law School’s campus, develop and broaden professional relations, and avail yourself of ample opportunities to talk directly to federal judicial and bar leaders.

Defensible AI? – Eric Evans, Alex Lakatos, and Brad Peterson of Mayer Brown propose a four-part framework for explaining and defending a company’s use of AI in litigation:

  • Management team specifies to its data scientists and technicians how the company wants the AI tool to work
  • The tool is built to store the right facts about how it arrived at results
  • The company employs “AI sustainers” to continually test and modify the tool
  • The company emloys “AI explainers” who can explain the tool’s results

E-discovery and electronic storage basics revisited – Craig Ball’s recent post, Electronic Storage in a Nutshell, offers a 21-point synopsis of e-discovery storage concepts, technical takeaways, and vocabulary.

Legal technologies charted – Jaap Bosman of TGO Consulting posted a chart of current legal technology types that provides a useful overview.


Recent e-discovery decisions

3/4/2019 – After a jury awarded plaintiff damages for copyright infringement, the District Court awarded fees and costs for, among other things, litigation expenses such as expert witnesses, e-discovery, and jury consulting. In making this award, the District Court relied upon the “full costs” language in the Copyright Act. The U.S. Supreme Court found that the award of litigation expenses was not warranted. “Full costs” allowed under the Copyright Act are limited to the costs specified by §§1821 and 1920. Those sections in turn specify the six categories of expenses that courts may award as costs: (1) clerk and marshall fees; (2) fees for certain transcripts; (3) printing and witness fees and disbursements: (4) fees for exemplification and copying costs for certain materials; (5) certain docket fees; and (6) compensation for court appointed experts and interpreters and costs for certain interpretation services. Asserting that none of those categories covers expert witnesses, e-discovery, and jury consulting, The Supreme Court focused on the meaning of “full” in the Copyright Act’s phrase “full costs”, concluding that the “full” in “full costs” does not expand the scope of costs covered and hence that the award of litigation expenses was not warranted. Rimini Street, Inc., et al, v. Oracle USA, Inc., et al., 586 U. S. ____ (2019).

4/26/2019 – Judge Sasso of the Florida Fifth District Court of Appeal, affirming a summary final judgment, held that Florida law does not impose a duty on nonparties to litigation to preserve evidence based solely on the foreseeability of litigation. In the underlying action, plaintiff served six deposition notices on an individual who was not a party to the lawsuit. Only with the sixth notice did plaintiff include a document request. After receiving the first notice but before receiving the sixth notice, the individual obtained a new computer, destroyed her old one, did not retain any data from the old computer,a nd did not inform anyone that she was destroying the old computer. She also did not search the old computer for any information relevant to the notices she had received up to the time when she destroyed the machine. Plaintiff subsequently sued the individual. Both plaintiff and the individual brought motions for summary judgment regarding whether the individual had a duty to preserve her computer or its contents. Florida has an independent cause of action for third-party spoliation with six elements, all of which must be proven. The second element requires a legal or contractual duty to preserve relevant to the potential civil action, a duty the court found not to be present. Shamrock-Shamrock, Inc. v. Remark, No. 5D18-1987 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. Apr. 26, 2019).

As with many websites, JD Supra's website (located at www.jdsupra.com) (our "Website") and our services (such as our email article digests)(our "Services") use a standard technology called a "cookie" and other similar technologies (such as, pixels and web beacons), which are small data files that are transferred to your computer when you use our Website and Services. These technologies automatically identify your browser whenever you interact with our Website and Services.

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;
  2. Store the authorization token that users receive when they login to the private areas of our Website. This token is specific to a user's login session and requires a valid username and password to obtain. It is required to access the user's profile information, subscriptions, and analytics;
  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.

JD Supra Cookies. We place our own cookies on your computer to track certain information about you while you are using our Website and Services.

In addition, through these cookies we are able to collect information about how you use the Website, including what browser you may be using, your IP address, and the URL address you came from upon visiting our Website and the URL you next visit (even if those URLs are not on our Website). We also utilize email web beacons to monitor whether our emails are being delivered and read. We also use these tools to help deliver reader analytics to our authors to give them insight into their readership and help them to improve their content, so that it is most useful for our users.

The processes for controlling and deleting cookies vary depending on which browser you use. To find out how to do so with a particular browser, you can use your browser's "Help" function or alternatively, you can visit http://www.aboutcookies.org which explains, step-by-step, how to control and delete cookies in most browsers.
