Deep Dive into the 2020 Decisions
that are Helping to Define eDiscovery

 

Despite the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, eDiscovery case law in 2020 continued–in fact, even accelerated–its dramatic rise since the enactment of the changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure in 2015.

With more than 2800 decisions in ediscovery this year, eDiscovery Assistant and eDiscovery Today selected cases from 2020 that highlight growing and developing issues in the law that lawyers and legal professionals in the industry will want to be aware of how courts are ruling—including sanctions, proportionality, TAR, privilege log and 30(b)(6) witnesses—as well as areas of growing technical importance including mobile devices, short messaging, audio and video files, and the use and involvement of the courts on defining search terms to locate relevant documents.
