The Importance of Tracking Employee Movements for Legal Defensibility

Created on August 23, 2016


Director of Marketing Programs

We lose things. Keys, phones, remotes. And sometimes, when we can’t find them, there are consequences—some bigger than others. Corporate legal teams are no different when it comes to e-discovery. Either they produce the sought after data on their own or face punishment for spoliation—sometimes costing hundreds of thousands of dollars in a single case. At every organization, employees frequently leave the company, change roles or take extended leaves of absence (e.g. maternity or medical leave). Organizations often respond to these events by recycling old systems, deleting email... Read More

Only 105 Days Until E-Discovery Day! It’s Never Too Early to Start Planning How You’ll Celebrate

One of the main themes that came out of Exterro's 2016 Judges Survey was that e-discovery competency was significantly lacking amongst attorneys and other e-discovery practitioners. As one attorney put it, “Litigators tend to be people with high confidence, and too often they think if they don't understand something it must not be that important. They view E-Discovery as akin to janitorial work – a skill neither difficult or prestigious." But E-Discovery is a complex process that, like anything that's done well, requires education and training. When that process... Read More

See You in the Funny Papers: Exterro E-Discovery Comic Anthology

Since James Gillray, English printmaker and the father of the political cartoon, started lampooning the French Revolution, King George III of England, and other figures of his time, editorial cartoons have continued to take on politics, business, and scandal; and often, it's these caricatures – sometimes even more so than traditional journalism – that capture our attention and aid our understanding of complex issues, sometimes even more than straightforward reporting or analysis. So we thought, “Why not E-Discovery?" The Exterro creative team put together... Read More

Facebook Images, Olympic GIFs, New Payment Apps - You Can Hide, But You Can’t Escape Technological Changes

Yesterday I bought four tickets for myself and three friends from college to watch my beloved Stanford Cardinal football team play the Oregon Ducks later this season. I emailed each of my friends to let them know they owed me $120 (yes, the cost of tickets is outrageous, but that's a topic for another time). One of the three – the guy who has spent his entire career in Silicon Valley – responded by asking if I was ok with a check, or if I preferred Venmo, Cash, or Paypal. He admitted that he actually didn't have the Venmo or Cash apps, but figured that I might. My other... Read More

Visibility is a Trap: Panopticism, E-Discovery, and the Rich Kids of Instagram

Created on August 9, 2016

Jeremy Bentham's Panopticon, an 18th century architectural structure first imagined for prisons, works as a metaphor for the power of social media in the 21 st century. The idea behind the panopticon is that any group of people (inmates, workers, students, a community) that is separated from each other but constantly visible to a central authority will become both the object and subject of power. In short, those who are watched change their behavior to appeal to the desires of the watcher. This is why an empty police car parked near the highway gets people to... Read More
