Spring Digest: Everything You Need to Know (so far!) in 2017
Ediscovery has been busy this year. We’re only five months in and we’ve already seen developments in predictive coding, proportionality standards and ediscovery practices around the world.
Before you head off on your summer vacation, take a minute to refresh yourself on some of the hottest topics in ediscovery so far this year.
Proportionality is Key
One of the most significant amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure back in 2015 was a new requirement for discovery to be “proportional to the needs of the case.” Today, counsel must ensure that their discovery requests are specific and add value to their case in relation to the accompanying expense.
Australia Gets in the Predictive Coding Game
First the United States, then Ireland and England, and now Australia. Predictive coding (also known as TAR) continues to spread around the world as courts encourage parties to consider technology to discover and inspect documents.
Using Cellebrite in Mobile Phone Investigations
You need not be a computer wizard to appreciate the volumes of relevant data housed on the mobile device in your hand. The standards and technology for extracting mobile device data are still progressing, variable and slightly confusing. KrolLDiscovery’s Jason Bergerson answers common questions around specific technology and processes in mobile phone investigations.
Ediscovery Around the World
Throughout this year, KrolLDiscovery will be diving deep into ediscovery practices around the world. We hope you’ll join us as we explore data collection, privacy, proportionality and production practices in the Americas, EMEA and APAC. So far, we’ve stopped in Australia, Ireland, Canada, the U.K. and Germany to discuss some ediscovery trends in each locale.
