    Product Description

    To represent your client effectively, you may need to advise on records retention, tackle spoliation, craft a "clawback agreement" to retrieve information inadvertently disclosed online, seize electronic evidence, or depose a computer forensics expert. Massachusetts E-Discovery and Evidence: Preservation Through Trial will guide you through it all. This definitive guide examines the evolution of e-discovery, including the touchstone Sedona Principles for Electronic Document Production, the seminal Zubulake and Morgan Stanley cases, and much more. Metadata, technological schematics, and infrastructure are also explained in easily understood terms.

    • Update: October 2017

      Dear Subscriber:

      Thank you for choosing to keep informed in the area of e-discovery with this 2017 edition of E-Discovery and Evidence: Preservation Through Trial. Inside, you will find information on topics like these:


      • See Chapter 1 for updated statistical information regarding the use of smartphones and other electronic devices.
      • The chapter reports on recent research from Pew Internet Research that informs counsel regarding the prevalence of electronic devices as sources of evidence in trials today.
      • Chapter 1 also features current information regarding the use of cloud-based storage and document hosting, and practical ways in which cloud technology impacts e-discovery objectives in litigation.
      • Rely on Chapter 1, as well, for insights into how the phenomenon of "bring your own device" is playing out in workplaces.


      • See Chapter 2 for interesting news on the process of electronic discovery harvesting; unitization; and the iterative process of review, reduction, and analysis. The chapter features a section on how to review discovery while maintaining evidentiary privilege and protection.
      • Also see Chapter 2 for practical information on the protection known as the "Fed. R. Evid. 502(d) order."


      • • Chapter 3 provides a useful summary of the principles contained in the third edition (2017 public comment version) of the Sedona Principles.

      This is just a brief sample of the hundreds of new practice notes, analyses, samples, and other practice aides you will encounter in the 2017 edition. We trust that you will find this material useful in your practice, and valuable in your litigation law library.
