Zapproved has published its new E-Discovery Case Law Summaries: 2017 Winter volume, covering the latest trends in applying the new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) to address cases involving preservation and discovery missteps.
The volume illustrates what e-discovery pitfalls to avoid and how the courts are bringing issues of proportionality, cooperation and preservation to the forefront. These rulings reflect more nuance in curing prejudice, such as ordering “measures no greater than necessary” and awarding attorney fees and permissive jury instructions, according to Zapproved.
Summaries cover the gamut of cases, from the high-profile U.S. v Volkswagen AG to the quieter Security Alarm Financing Enterprises and Arrowhead Capital Financial. Together, they add up to a snapshot of where courts are leaning and why noncompliant e-discovery practices are dangerous.
This free volume includes quick e-discovery case law abstracts from the last 10 years, plus full summaries of nine recent cases.
