Everything to do with E-discovery & ESI

Case Blurb: Rhoads Indus.; Keywords and Emails

Posted by rjbiii on December 8, 2008

The advent of electronically stored information (“ESI”) has been widely discussed and has already resulted in amendments to the discovery rules. Keyword and name searches are frequently employed as an initial method to screen and sort documents, but they are not foolproof. For instance, privileged communications frequently creep into e-mail “chains,” but may appear only to some participants in the chain depending on a user’s application of the “reply” and “forward” commands. These issues [invariably] led to at least some of Rhoads’ inadvertent disclosures.
