Product details

The use of e-mail and electronically stored data has fundamentally changed the discovery process and the judicial standards for what is a "reasonable" discovery request. It has also led to new strategies and tactics that can mean the difference between winning and losing a case.

Electronic Discovery is a comprehensive and much-needed treatment of this vital and evolving area. Beginning with the basic rules governing discovery, this book discusses the legal and practical challenges involved in e-discovery, special evidentiary issues, when protective orders to limit electronic discovery may be issued, and strategic considerations—in short, everything the practitioner needs to master the use of e-discovery.

Electronic Discovery looks closely at reasonableness in the context of electronic discovery, e-mail, messaging and other danger zones, document retention policies that can withstand scrutiny, and other essential topics. The authors provide guidance from both offensive and defensive perspectives, including timesaving forms and examples. This truly modern reference will prove its worth to practicing trial lawyers for years to come.
