The 2012 E-Discovery Case Law Awards

This article is a look back at the E-Discovery Beat’s most notable E-Discovery Rulings for 2012. The articles discussed cover issues including: spoliation of evidence, predictive coding, the attorney-client privilege and limitations on waiver, addressing proportionality when shifting the costs of e-discovery, and even the adversarial nature of e-discovery itself. In almost all the cited cases, the main problems could have been avoided by a good faith effort by both attorneys to come up with a protocol for e-discovery and documenting all e-discovery measures taken.
