To put it flatly, ESI is used within litigation and can be presented in court as evidence, should a judge decide that it’s necessary to have.

As soon as there is anticipation of litigation, all ESI and other evidence that may be relevant to a case must be seized and preserved in order to keep it to its most original form.
