Norris McLaughlin, P.A.
Attorneys Teach Course at the
2007 Judicial College

SOMERVILLE, NJ – Margaret Raymond-Flood of the Response to Electronic Discovery and Information (“REDI”) Group of the Somerville law firm of Norris McLaughlin, P.A., presented Electronically Stored Information: Where Technology Meets the LawIf it Hasn’t Been in Your Court Room Yet, It WILL! at the afternoon session of the New Jersey Judicial College on Tuesday, November 20, 2007. They presented along with the Honorable Vincent J. Grasso, A.J.S.C., the Honorable Carol E. Higbee, P.J.Cv., Robert Kleeger, Director of The Intelligence Group, and Stephen L. Stewart, Principal of ESI Strategies, LLC.

The presentation gave the judges a basic understanding of the technology involved, the expectations and obligations imposed by the amended e-discovery court rules, how to manage and balance e-discovery issues that will inevitably arise in their courtroom no matter what types of cases they typically handle, and the legal and practical ramifications their rulings will have on litigants. The three-hour, interactive, multi-disciplinary seminar was designed specifically for state court judges.

The Judicial College is part of the Judicial Education Program, which primary goals are to refine the formal training activities for new judges and experienced judges with new assignments, to strengthen and expand continuing education programs for all judges, to develop programs which address the distinct educational needs of judges who work in highly specialized areas of law, and to provide training opportunities which improve public access to and knowledge of the judicial system. The Judicial College provides judges with a wide range of academic programs to keep abreast of developments in the law and judicial administration.
