About the Book

E-discovery has shaken up litigation across America. Judges are dealing with e-discovery issues unheard of ten years ago. Arbitrators are trying to figure out its impacts in international and domestic arbitration. Civil law practitioners, who do not yet deal with e-discovery in the same sense as common law lawyers must deal with it, may be wondering what the fuss is about. The case law is developing in a number of areas and conflicting decisions are not unusual.

This concise book examines recurring issues in the area of e-discovery in an accessible question and answer format. It offers insight into the thorny issues and references specific cases to make your research quicker and easier. It provides much-needed clarity on the issues that you see again and again in e-discovery.

Questions include:
  • Must a Party Preserve Backup Tapes?
  • Must Bad Faith Be Shown to Obtain Sanctions Against the United States?
  • Are Document Retention Notices and Key Word Search Protocols Discoverable?
  • How Do You Make Sure that a Party Complies with E-Discovery Obligations?
  • Can You Use A Subpoena to Obtain Information From an Opposing Expert?
What Your Peers Are Saying

"E-Discovery: Twenty Questions and Answers is detailed, highly informative and far more thoughtful than most writing on the subject. The author applies his legal scholarship and keen insight to a field that is often rife with anecdotes and thinly disguised marketing pitches. It is a welcome addition to the e-discovery literature."
