Product details

The greatest challenge for attorneys dealing with eDiscovery is simply keeping up with changing rules and technologies. This handbook is designed to help attorneys practicing in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware keep up with the dizzying pace of change. Special attention has been given to emerging eDiscovery issues – such as metadata discovery, computer assisted review, and the Stored Communications Act.

The handbook addresses the key issues in eDiscovery – preservation, document production, proportionality, cost-shifting, social media, third-party discovery, data privacy, foreign discovery, discovery in criminal cases, and sanctions.

The handbook also focuses on case law and local rules addressing eDiscovery in Pennsylvania state courts, as well as federal courts within the Third Circuit.


Use of Social Media:
Latest developments in the emerging use of the Threshold Rule in Pennsylvania, which provides that the court must first determine whether the publicly viewable portion of a user’s social media content contains relevant information. If this is satisfied as a preliminary matter, courts will grant access to the user’s private social media content.
