Cooperation, E-Discovery, Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) 0 July 31, 2017 134 Aaron Taylor

While reading the numerous blogs and articles emphasizing increased efforts to have attorneys be more cooperative in their “meet and confers” and ongoing conferences, I happened to recall some legal work of Louis Brandeis before he ascended to the US Supreme Court.  Not that I’m a legal scholar, but I enjoy reading of the works of […]

Can discovery notices have different labels or titles? One of the most enjoyable aspects of my many years in the Information Management and E-Discovery business is the great friendships and camaraderie formed with others, especially those forged over time and experience.  I enjoyed just such an ongoing friendship and conversation the other day, lunch with […]

Cross Border, E-Discovery, Email, Privacy 0 February 21, 2017 219 Aaron Taylor

A truism that we can probably rely on, even in our current state of affairs, is that ‘training is good’.  In any industry or environment, those who are well-trained can for the most part be relied upon to do the right thing, in their work product and professional life.  And the trainers, of all people, […]

The peace and quiet of holiday vacation seemed to provide the perfect setting for a bit of rumination on ethics in the world of eDiscovery; I was all set to babble away, when a very interesting news item diverted my attention.  As anyone who has read the few blog entries I have posted so far will […]

It seems I had barely digested the intriguing information about one of the newer messaging apps called Signal as I discussed in my last blog and as reported by the NYTimes, when now I see a new story about updates by Slack to their app as reported by The Technologist blog from FindLaw.  Slack is putting the pressure on other […]

A rather tumultuous year is rapidly winding down, with all its struggle and hype and surprises.  The stress of getting through another year seems to always bring out the “Gee, remember when…?” syndrome, as in, “Gee, remember when the holidays weren’t so hectic?”; or, “Gee, remember when you got your coffee at home, and not […]

Based on the articles, blog posts and general buzz in the IT, security, and Information Governance world, it would appear the big interest topic to close out the year may center on Artificial Intelligence, or AI.  Holiday shopping lists are likely to be cluttered with the latest in-home gadgets, from ‘smart’ refrigerators, TVs, climate control, lighting and […]
