eDiscovery Cost-Shifting & Taxation of Costs - CLE

Join the panel of experts for a critical examination of the current status of the law with regards to cost-shifting and taxation in the context of eDiscovery. Participants will explore the “American Rule” and how FRCP 26(b)(2)(B) creates an “undue burden or cost” exception to that rule when electronically stored information is concerned. Participants will learn about cost-shifting mechanisms under FRCP 26 and FRCP 37, common law approaches to cost-shifting and the interplay between FRCP 54(d) and 28 U.S.C. §1920. Participants will compare traditional categories of taxable costs with those costs typically associated with eDiscovery projects. The panel will discuss the impact of opinions from Race Tires America, Inc. v. Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. through the recent Supreme Court opinion in Taniguchi v. Kan Pacific Saipan, Ltd. The course will also explore cost-shifting with regards to party agreements, third parties, data hosting, class actions and technology assisted review using recent opinions as case studies. Participants will leave with practical tips and strategies for how to support cost-shifting arguments and post-trial taxation of costs.

Leveraging Technology Assisted Review: The What, Why, How & When - CLE

This course is designed to develop an individual attorney’s ability to deal with one of the most important developments in the history of legal technology and process – Technology Assisted Review (TAR). Attorneys can no longer hang their competency hats solely on keywords when searching for responsive documents during discovery. Technological problems require technological solutions, and attorneys must be aware of the tools available to address the large volume and diversity of electronic data that is increasingly involved in cases today. TAR represents a sea change in how attorneys can approach document discovery. The panel of experts will discuss TAR concepts, case law and best-practices through a series of fact patterns. Participants will also learn how to develop and implement TAR-based discovery protocols that streamline review, cut costs and help develop both technological competence and strategic prowess.
