Electronic Discovery Guidance

Law Technology News yesterday morning carried a story about U.S. Southern District of New York Court Judge Shira Scheindlin -- perhaps the most influential jurist in the development of electronic data discovery protocols -- issuing another opinion that has "the EDD community a-flutter," ruling on Feb. 7 that metadata must accompany documents that federal agencies send in response to Freedom of Information Act requests.

Prestigious Los Angeles law firm Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, a leader in electronic discovery litigation, was quick to turn out an alert in which it said "Judge Scheindlin apparently viewed this as a teachable moment regarding how parties should produce [electronically stored information]. While not of the scope of her opinions in Zubulake and Pension Committee, her decision here nevertheless provides helpful guidance regarding the form of production and the parties' obligations to discuss these issues in the Rule 26(f) meeting of counsel."

LTN's article also links to the case discussed.

It can't succeed in fact, that is what I think.
