E-Discovery and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedures
The FRCP have been amended and updated to take account of electronic information. Attorneys can no longer just throw individual E-Discovery requests ‘over the wall’ to the IT department. Indeed, the pitfalls associated with E-Discovery represent one of the greatest risks that organisations face in litigation today. If a defendant fails to produce e-mail evidence when required, the courts will assume that this evidence has been wilfully destroyed or withheld. Records management professionals, IT personnel, compliance experts and general counsel all need to work together to develop a comprehensive framework for handling E-Discovery requirements. This pocket guide provides expert advice on how to build such a framework within your organisation in order to assess and to manage the risks associated with E-Discovery.
