The 2015 changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure related to discovery were a sweeping attempt to deal with the massive increase in volume and variety of electronically stored information.
While the changes were intended to make civil litigation more time and cost efficient, their complexity has left room for interpretation; details are still being argued and decided in court. In fact, hundreds of rulings on eDiscovery case law were handed down this past year, including one from the U.S. Supreme Court.
In this Advanced Discovery complimentary webinar, two of our eDiscovery experts, Brandi Walkowiak, Esq., Vice President of Review and Professional Services and Robert Alarcon, JD, Vice President of Consulting Services, will give their perspectives on a sampling of some of the most important decisions from 2017 rulings on eDiscovery case law.
In particular, they will focus on cases pertaining to:
