Today’s Webcast Will Help You Learn About Key eDiscovery Case Law in 2019 (so far) and How it Affects You: eDiscovery Webcasts

Shark Week on the Discovery Channel continues, which means Case Week on the eDiscovery Channel (a.k.a., eDiscovery Daily) continues as well.  So far, 2019 has been another interesting year with notable and important case law decisions related to eDiscovery best practices. What do you need to know about the cases to avoid mistakes made by others and save time and money for your clients?  In today’s webcast, you can catch up on twenty-two (!) cases from the first half of the year and find out what they mean to you!

Today at noon CST (1:00pm EST, 10:00am PST), CloudNine will conduct the webcast Key eDiscovery Case Law Review for First Half of 2019.  This CLE-approved* webcast session will cover key case law covered by the eDiscovery Daily Blog during the first half of 2019 to identify trends that lawyers should consider for their own practices. Key topics include:

  • Can ESI related to an unsolved murder case be compelled to be produced in a related civil case?
  • Is the use of biometric fingerprint scanning technology an invasion of privacy?
  • When can non-parties be compelled to produce ESI in litigation?
  • Are social media photos that you didn’t post discoverable if you’ve been tagged in them?
  • Can sanctions be so important that you fight NOT to have a claim against you dismissed?
  • Is being forced to provide your cell phone password the “death knell” for fifth amendment protection?
  • Should a case ruling be reversed if a judge is Facebook friends with one of the parties?
  • Should discovery be stayed while a motion to dismiss is being considered?
  • Does Rule 37(e) eliminate the potential for obtaining sanctions for spoliation of ESI?

As always, I’ll be presenting the webcast, along with Tom O’Connor.  To register for it, click here.  Even if you can’t make it, go ahead and register to get a link to the slides and to the recording of the webcast (if you want to check it out later).  If you want to learn from past eDiscovery case law decisions, this is the webcast for you!
