FYI: Electronic Discovery

Introduction

Sending e-mail and creating documents that are stored electronically are two functions that are universal in business today. This means that when attorneys, or their clients, become involved in litigation, requests will be made to review and receive information in an electronic format. Electronic discovery is no longer limited to large firms or large companies since any size business can use electronic file storage. Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure will go into effect on December 1, 2006 and are concerned with the rules of e-discovery. The following resources provide information on electronic discovery, the rule changes and also links to online research for landmark e-discovery cases.
