    This program, designed for litigators, new lawyers, general practitioners, paralegals and support staff, covered the requirements any member of a litigating team, including both lawyers and paralegals, must be aware of when dealing with e-discovery issues. The panel discussed amendments to the federal and state court rules addressing e-discovery now in effect and their impact on the management and retrieval of electronically stored information. Some of the e-discovery issues the panel addressed included understanding terms of e-discovery, recent cases and trends, privilege issues, proportionality, and cost-shifting.

    Norris McLaughlin, P.A. to Host
    New Jersey State Bar Association’s
    First-Ever “Webinar”

    SOMERVILLE, NJ – Norris McLaughlin, P.A. is pleased to announce that on June 6, 2007, from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m., three of its members will host the New Jersey State Bar Association’s very-first webinar entitled “E-Discovery Federal and State Rule Amendments: What to Expect and How to Prepare,” on behalf of the Products Liability Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association. James Shrager will moderate, and Margaret Raymond-Flood will present the webinar with Magna Legal Services consultant Mark Calzaretta.

    The webinar will address the amendments that federal and state judiciaries have made to include new obligations on attorneys and corporate clients regarding electronically-stored information (commonly known as “E-discovery” or “ESI”). These amendments represent the federal and state judiciaries’ first formal attempt to address real-life problems faced by litigators in dealing with rapidly spawning electronic records, require parties to discuss electronically-stored information before discovery begins, provide parties a “safe harbor” from sanctions for destruction of e-data through routine operations, and preserve a privilege claim for electronic information that is inadvertently disclosed during litigation. The amendments bear a broad culpability standard warranting severe sanctions for businesses and attorneys who fail to properly comply.

    Individuals are encouraged to join representatives from Norris McLaughlin, P.A. and Magna Legal Services right from their desktop on June 6th for this web-based video-feed seminar to discuss the amendments to the federal and state rules, technical computer issues raised by the amendments, and the impact that these amendments will have on litigation practitioners.
