2017 eDiscovery Case Law Review: Sanctions, Security and SCOTUS on Spoliation

In modern legal practice, the difference between success and failure often boils down to the ability to navigate and make sense of data. To that end, the legal profession in 2017 was largely shaped by major developments in data and legal technology, from the way in which discovery sanctions were adjudicated to news-making data breaches, such as the so-called “Paradise Papers,” where the hacking of a major law firm exposed illicit tax-sheltering practices of many of the firm’s clients. Over the course of a tumultuous year, legal professionals confronted the specter of cybercrime, a shifting of judicial views on how (and how hard) evidentiary penalties should be imposed, and the fact that the demise of a client’s case -- or a fruitful career -- can arise from a simple failure to understand how modern tech works. The Supreme Court, in the high-profile Goodyear decision, even got in on the action.

Join a panel of experts, including federal judges, as we glean practical guidance from the most important cases and developments of 2017.

Cases reviewed include:

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. v. Haeger, No. 15-1406 (U.S. Apr. 18, 2017): When does a court’s inherent power to sanction cross the line?

Ronnie Van Zant, Inc. v. Pyle, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 138039 (S.D.N.Y. Aug. 28, 2017): Non-party sanctioned under Rule 37(e) for loss of cell phone information.

Harleysville Insurance Co. v. Holding Funeral Home, Inc., No. 1:15cv00057 (W.D. Va. Oct. 2, 2017): Should privilege be waived due to inappropriate use of a file-sharing site?

N.M. Oncology & Hematology Consultants v. Presbyterian Healthcare Servs., 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 130959 (D.N.M. Aug. 16, 2017): Should sanctions be levied for giving employees discretion to preserve emails?

Bailey v. Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center, No. CV 16-2195(ADS)(AKT), 2017 WL 2616957 (E.D.N.Y. June 16, 2017): Expensive discovery persuades court to split costs, and penalize counsel, in light of lopsided ESI agreement.

  • Protecting Client Data in the Age of Cybercrime Recorded: Sep 22 2017 61 mins
    Brian Focht, Eli Walk, Joe Marquette
    If you're practicing law in 2017, you're squarely in the crosshairs of one of the biggest threats the profession has ever faced. Law firms, by the nature of their business, are possessors of their clients' most sensitive trade secrets, IP and electronic records. And hackers know it. Earlier this year, this threat came home to roost in a big way: The Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca fell prey to what Edward Snowden described as the "biggest leak in the history of data journalism" -- where hackers accessed the firms IT framework and leaked more than 11.5 million documents across the web.
  • Social Media and the Law Recorded: Sep 6 2017 65 mins
    John Isaza, Eric Goldman, Aryan Kushan
    There are more than three billion active social media users across the world today. That’s almost half the global population, regularly tweeting about the news, sharing updates about their work, and, yes, uploading pictures of their lunch. But social media isn’t just changing the way we interact with each other; it’s changing the way we practice law.

    The rise of social media has significant and novel implications for legal professionals. How are social media messages accessed and preserved for litigation? What are the information governance implications, and potential liabilities, that can stem from a company’s Twitter account or an employee’s Facebook usage? And how are attorneys supposed to make sense of a or a , when emojis are working their way into more and more communication, on social networks and off?
  • Protecting Against Petya: Ransomware and the Future of Law Firm Cybersecurity Recorded: Jul 27 2017 47 mins
    Olga Mack, Brian Focht
    In June, a massive cyberattack brought down one of the country's biggest law firms. DLA Piper, its systems ravaged by the Petya ransomware program, was forced to shut down its phones service, email, and internal computer network--potentially costing millions in lost income. Weeks later, the firm was still digging itself out.

    Such attacks are increasingly an existential threat to firms of all sizes: the difference between being billing and nothingness. Join us as we discuss this urgent issue.

    Attendees will learn:

    -The recent history of cyberattacks against law firms large and small
    -The potential consequences of a successful attack
    -Cybersecurity protections GCs demand from their outside counsel
    -Ways attorneys can protect themselves against ransomware and other cyberattacks
  • The Price of Defeat: Navigating the High-Stakes 'Loser Pays' Rule Recorded: Jun 21 2017 61 mins
    Hon. Joy Flowers Conti, Michael Simon
    Millions of dollars trade hands each year by way of an obscure federal statute that allows prevailing parties to recover litigation costs. Increasingly, high stakes disputes arise over which, if any, eDiscovery costs can be recovered and how to pursue them.

    This webinar digs into case law and judicial guidance on a little understood, but increasingly important issue. Speakers include Hon. Joy Flowers Conti, Chief District Judge of the US District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.

    Attendees will learn:


    The history of eDiscovery cost-taxing in federal courts
    Approaches and preconditions for recovering eDiscovery costs
    Notable cases and outliers, including Supreme Court guidance
    Arguments likely to resonate with judges from plaintiff and defendant perspectives
  • Bitcoin, Blockchain, and the Law Recorded: May 12 2017 72 mins
    Erica Wilson, Stephen Middlebrook
    Bitcoin is currently soaring to new heights, with a single bitcoin worth more than $3,000. New “cryptocurrencies,” or digital currencies that employ encryption, are emerging every day, with hundreds circulating every day. Some entrepreneurs are even abandoning IPOs in favor of an “ICO,” or initial coin offering. And as blockchain-based cryptocurrencies become more widespread, they’re earning the scrutiny of federal and state regulators, from the IRS to state legislatures.

    Meanwhile blockchain, the technology that makes many virtual currencies possible, is gaining even more attention, as financial giants invest millions in blockchain research and forward-thinking legal minds turn to the technology for everything from land registries to smart contracts.

    These aren’t just hyped tech trends; bitcoin and blockchain could have significant legal implications, whether it's complicating eDiscovery, raising money laundering concerns, or being used as payment for legal services.

    Attendees will learn:
    -The basics of blockchain and bitcoin technology
    -How blockchain and bitcoin are impacting attorneys day-to-day practice -right now
    -How federal and state laws impact virtual currencies
    -Regulatory frameworks and possible regulatory action around virtual currency
  • Eliminate the #1 Risk in Modern Litigation Recorded: Jan 27 2017 29 mins
    Andy WIlson, Robert Hilson
    Security experts have a favorite saying: data is most vulnerable when it's in motion. Discovery, unfortunately, is a process of motion, where information and documents are shared between client, counsel, third-party service providers and opposing parties. Often, this data is exchanged on physical media (i.e. hard drives, DVDs) or through insecure methods like unencyrpted email. It's a risky, time-consuming and expensive process.
