As Bree Kelly remarked in her E-Discovery Day recap of case law trends and court opinions in 2017, "There were fewer bombshells and a little more instruction." But just because there might have been a little less high drama doesn't mean 2017's rulings won't make significant impacts on e-discovery practices. Instructive rulings on control (Van Zant v. Pyle), defensibility (Mirmina v. Genpact LLC), and proportionality (Solo v. UPS) all provided sensible, practical guidance to legal teams.
And while the cases in our Simplified E-Discovery Case Law Library allows you to learn from—and avoid—mistakes and missteps, they are brief. You can read and understand them in five minutes.
That's great, but sometimes you really want to dive a little deeper into the particulars of a case. Perhaps you want to hear from more than one perspective on the implications of an important ruling. If that's the case, you're in luck.
On December 13th at 1:00 pm ET/10:00 am PT, we’ll be hosting our E-Discovery Case Law Update: 2017 Review webcast featuring David Cohen, Esq., Head of E-Discovery Group at Reed Smith LLP; Hon.
