Using eDiscovery Software to Reduce Costs in the Review and Production of ESI


This program is a recording of the Live Seminar held on November 20, 2020. 
If you attended the live webcast via zoom program; You cannot claim CLE for watching this recorded program.  

On October 8, 2020, the Hawaii Supreme Court provided eDiscovery Guidelines, recommending that parties resolve ESI disputes without Court Intervention.

On January 16, 2020, the US District Court Hawaii, provided eDiscovery Rule 26 (f) Checklists:
“These are court approved and counsel should consult them at the beginning of every case involving e-discovery.  All counsel are expected to review the Guidelines.”

ABA Model Rule 1.1: An attorney cannot competently represent a client in these proceedings without having a fundamental understanding of the relevant technologies when undertaking electronic discovery.  Failure to do so could result in ethical violations, malpractice claims and judicial sanctions:

Millions in sanctions wouldn’t be proportional in a case worth only $20,000, right? Wrong. In Klipsch Group, Inc. v. ePRO E-Commerce Ltd., Nos. 16-3637-cv, 16-3726-cv (2d Cir. Jan. 25, 2018), the Second Circuit upheld a $2.7 million sanction against ePRO for its repeated and willful discovery misconduct

We will address defensible processes in identifying, preserving and collecting ESI and demonstrate the efficiencies of eDiscovery Review Software
