Dear Criminal Justice Section Members:
Here is a link to an online survey regarding the handling of electronically stored information (“ESI”) as evidence in criminal cases.
The survey is short, and should take only 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
Your responses will greatly assist the Criminal Justice Section’s Task
Force on Criminal E-Discovery in developing best practices and guidelines
in this important and rapidly expanding area of criminal law. Thank you for your assistance.
Stephen M. Byers, Chair, CJS Task Force on Criminal E-Discovery
The WCC Committee has developed a "Brady Best Practices" group which
needs your help. The group consists of public defenders, prosecutors,
defense lawyers, judges, ethics officers, and academics. It seeks to
study and survey the Brady and disclosure obligations and practices in
criminal justice systems nationwide. The committee has created a
short on-line survey which seeks information regarding disclosure
policies and practices in state and federal jurisdictions. Please take the time to
address this short-poll and feel free to pass it on to your interested colleagues. Click here for the online poll.
