eDiscovery Disasters of 2023: How to Avoid Them in Your eDiscovery Practice presented by Doug Austin

Case law rulings are great “teachers” of what can go wrong in discovery and what the consequences for those mistakes are. Sometimes, those mistakes are so significant, they can lead to reputational damage, monetary sanctions, adverse inference instructions to the jury, or even outright loss of the case! These mistakes are the eDiscovery disasters that we all want and need to avoid in our own discovery practices. This presentation will involve the discussion of six eDiscovery “disasters” from 2023 case law rulings, how they could have been prevented and what you need to know to avoid them in your discovery practice. Topics include:

  • Video Evidence and Custodian Self Collection
  • Understanding the Potential Significance of ESI Early in the Case
  • Having a Plan for Your Unusual ESI Sources
  • Mismanagement of Legal Hold of Mobile Devices
  • Understanding Your ESI Agreeing to an ESI Protocol
  • The Relationship Between eDiscovery Competence and Cooperation
