Reckless disregard in eDiscovery will cost you

My good friend Judge Herbert Dixon will be smacking lawyers upside the head at the ABA Techshow when he co-panels a session called E-Discovery Ethics: An Ounce of Prevention. This is scheduled for 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Friday and joining Judge Dixon will be Ralph Losey and David Ries.  I have co-presented with both Judge Dixon and David Ries and they know their stuff backwards and forwards.    Judge Dixon doesn’t mince words, so he’ll get right to the point on how you need to behave yourself in an eDiscovery smack-down.  No smarmy lawyers allowed.

Here’s the course description:

E-Discovery Ethics: An Ounce of Prevention –  The ethical considerations applicable to E-Discovery are significant. Attorneys have been subjected to substantial sanctions for their ignorance, or even reckless disregard, in handling electronically stored information. Let us alert you to recurring problems, before you or your client discover them for yourselves. Our experts will explain the ethical implications of dealing with ESI, and provide you with the knowledge to avoid ethical dilemmas others have faced.
