About the Book

In seven chapters and fifty-eight separate articles, this book introduces the exciting new field of electronic discovery, explains the latest trends and cases in an interesting and easy-to-read manner, and outlines the new interdisciplinary team approach to solving the unique problems of e-discovery--where the talents of law, IT and management are combined.

The book is derived from a popular Internet blog on an e-discovery by a senior attorney at a large national law firm. As such, e-Discovery is the world's first legal "blook," where, for the first time, a legal book includes reader's comments on the materials in the book, and the author's replies straight from the authors Blog.

From the basics of e-discovery, to chapters on metadata, ESI, ethical standards, and the new federal rules of civil procedure, readers of all levels of expertise will find useful information. It includes in-depth, authoritative legal analysis and practical advice, not only explaining the legal issues, but also the technologies behind the issues. It is also the first book on e-discovery to include the opinions and analysis of many leading experts in the field, not just those of the author.

It is designed as a cover-to-cover read to learn more about the hot topics and latest case law in e-discovery. But after that, it can be used as a reference book, to look up cases and arguments to use in daily practice. The book also includes an Appendix of useful reference materials, such as the full text of the federal new rules on e-discovery and the Committee commentary, local rules, model states rules, and an index and a table of cases.

e-Discovery is also written in an easy-to-read style, making it perfect for anyone interested in e-discovery. This book is suitable for non-lawyers, too, including paralegals, law students, IT experts, and executives of all kinds in the growing fields of e-discovery and information management. Nothing is having a more profound effect on the field of law today than e-discovery. Make sure you stay on top of the latest trends with this important new book.
What Others Are Saying

"Ralph Losey's book is an e-discovery tour-de-force. For every litigator who thinks he or she has heard enough about e-discovery already, I suggest that the book will be eye-opening. For every CEO and CIO who hasn't heard about the e-discovery tsunami engulfing the profession, I recommend that he or she be given a copy as a holiday present this year."
--Jason R. Baron, Esq., Editor in Chief of The Sedona Best Practices Commentary on The Use of Search and Retrieval Methods in E-Discovery

"E-Discovery- Current Trends and Cases is an excellent resource for any professional trying to stay current with the ever changing world of Electronic Discovery. Mr. Losey tackles a very complex subject and makes it accessible and understandable to a wide spectrum of readers."
--Keith D. Mobley, Esq., Legal Consultant, Legal Technologies

"...a brilliant combination of tales, advice, victories and defeats which brings technology within the easy grasp of lawyers, allows IT staff understand why their attorney can't sleep at night, and explains the whole headache to upper management. (It) captures the pace and wit of the original blog and informs like a text. It is your e-discovery field guide. "
--William F. Hamilton, Partner, Holland & Knight LLP and Adjunct Professor at the University of Florida's Levin College of Law

"Written in a clear, engaging style, Ralph Losey blends discussion of electronic discovery practice, case law, and issues into a concise and useful work. A must-read for the attorney new to e-discovery seeking a trustworthy mentor as well as to the experienced practioner seeking to deepen their knowledge."
--Jim Barrick, President & CEO, Control Discovery, Inc.

"Litigation attorneys will increasingly find that courts will impose sanctions on those who do not know their client's information systems, and who do not understand the e-discovery process and rules. This book is a must read for any litigation attorney who will inevitably have to deal with electronic data."
--Ben Brush, Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics; Account Manager, Datum Legal

"All participants in the enormous electronic discovery industry owe it to themselves to read Ralph Losey. His deep knowledge of the field never prevents him from approaching each new event or insight as a passionate, well-informed observer. The net-net is to make e-discovery a good read, and I don't know of anybody who does that better."
--Jon Neiditz, Author, Presenter, and Of Counsel, Locke, Lord, Bissell & Liddell LLP

"...(this book) does an extraordinary job of explaining challenges that frequently arise. Even more importantly, (Ralph Losey) proposes solutions to them. His book suggests ways to make e-discovery more manageable and discusses how new technologies and techniques may be used for e-discovery in the near future."
--Peter D. Siddoway, Jones Day

"By bringing together the law, science and art of e-discovery, Ralph Losey's book brings the e-discovery discussion back to life - a most welcome accomplishment."
Anne Kershaw, founder of A. Kershaw, P.C. // Attorneys & Consultants

"Ralph's book is a terrific resource for the litigator about to dive into the seemingly murky waters of electronic discovery. He not only summarizes the key issues in the field, but provides valuable insights based on his practical experience in the area. His writing style is straightforward (and humorous at times). In other words, unlike much lawyer-authored material, it's actually readable! An excellent tool for the practitioner."
--W. Lawrence Wescott II, Electronic Discovery Blog
