As a result, you e-discovery experts and influencers are a busy bunch. You put together a lot of presentations.
e-Discovery software is not used exclusively by law firms or service providers—today’s corporate counsel are facing constant pressure to reduce costs in litigation, especially when faced with numerous discovery requests. This trend is getting more challenging due to exponential data growth and content proliferation. IDC’s Digital Universe study predicts the world's data will amount to 44 zettabytes by 2020, which will have a significant impact on the compliance and e-discovery needs of organizations on a global scale. Corporate legal departments are aware of the trend, but an often-heard challenge is understanding what tools are available to combat this data deluge.
Well, Deflategate is the gift that keeps on giving because this week the U.S. Court of Appeals issued its decision in the Deflategate appeal.
Intercepting the District Court
If National Football League (NFL) Commissioner Roger Goodell is the most despised man in Boston since Benedict Arnold, the U.S. Court of Appeals has now taken on the role of George III of England.
2016 is well under way, and October is just on the horizon. That means our favorite event of year—Relativity Fest—is coming up fast. The goal of the conference is to offer bigger, better, and more immersive learning opportunities each year for attendees who want to dive deep and gather takeaways that will help their day-to-day work be more effective.
At last year’s conference, the sixth in its history, we heard judges’ recommendations for e-discovery teams, discussed collaborating across departments and the globe, and got a peek at the latest innovations in Relativity and the ecosystem.
Little did we know, our question would inspire our good friend Chris Dale of the eDisclosure Information Project to go beyond the 140-character limit and dish on what makes an event good, bad, and just plain “crappy” for a speaker.
Chris pointed out that kCura’s events, such as Relativity Fest, aren’t the subject of any of his adverse comments—we were glad, as we strive to organize events that don’t suck.
Of course, Relativity Fest isn’t the only conference to consider attending. Here’s a handful more from your peers.
Let’s take a look at the key takeaways from this provocative author and his latest endeavor.

After a laborious multi-year process, the new e-discovery amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure went into effect on December 1 of last year. As the e-discovery bar braced for big changes, many overlooked an important aspect of the amendments.
The new Federal Rules may not apply to your case.
Here are a few ways you can keep a level head while juggling demands, balancing the load, and scaling to meet every project’s needs.
You have your preferred e-discovery workflow in place: near-duplicate detection and email threading to better organize the data from the start, and technology-assisted review to prioritize the review from there.
This post was originally published by Lighthouse Discovery, a Relativity Best in Service Partner. It's a playful take on the challenges that arise from mobile data when it comes to e-discovery, and includes informative best practice recommendations.
Alarm goes off late, one of the kids cannot find their backpack for school, the dogs still need to be fed, and you have a meeting in less than an hour. Good morning chaos! You grab the car keys off the table and manage to get out the door in record time with everyone fed and intact. You are finally on the road when you realize your car is running on empty. You quickly drop off the kids at school and rush to the gas station to fill up just enough so that you are not running on fumes and can make it to your meeting on time. Sitting at the gas station, you reach for your phone to check email and make sure all is still set for the meeting. Where is it? Every pocket searched, work bag rummaged through at least twice, and console checked, but it is nowhere! Then it hits you. It is on the table right where your keys were, at home! As late and as stressed as you already are, you turn back home to get it.
