Panel tackles tough issues on e-discovery at UB Law
The Daily Record, March 16, 2008
Much talk surrounding e-discovery has focused on the retention and production of e-mail communication. However, as U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul W. Grimm points out, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure were amended less than two years ago and we’re already looking for ways to handle alternative forms of electronic evidence.
“Are we doomed to be forever chasing after our own tail because we can never keep up with the technology?” asked Grimm, who sits in Maryland.
We know that we can’t control time, much less the evolution of technology. What we can do however, is practice what we know and protect the documents we do have. The rest we’ll have to learn together as we go.
