In my last blog post, I discussed the benefits for law firms in establishing a Legal Hold Administrator position to manage legal hold activities for their clients as part of an overall eDiscovery program. Those benefits included provided better service to clients, ensuring compliance with Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Federal Rules of Evidence requirements and guidelines, potential for economic benefit to the firm, more efficient and effective legal hold implementation and life cycle…
Words have always been important to me as part of my love of the English language, especially through books of various topics. Books…the words within well-written books…have provided me with enjoyment, education and ongoing learning, insight, travel (at least in my mind), and above all, the humbling realization that there is so much more to learn, just behind that next cover. So the value of context and the right words in the right place is…

Twitter has become a reliable (dare I say “go-to?) source for me to catch up on current trends, comments and insights from industry leaders in the eDiscovery and Privacy arenas that I work in…when I’m not enjoying baseball and travel banter with especially-enjoyable contacts, that is! And that is what brings me to this rather “off-topic” topic about management reports, from a well-stated tweet from someone titled just “Dr.” @chao_mbogho. She advised managers to utilize…
The term zero-sum seems to be tossed around more and more frequently, with the inevitable lessening of its impact perhaps, but more importantly a clouding of its meaning or worse, assigning its use incorrectly or in a misleading manner. Merriam Webster describes “zero-sum” as: of, relating to, or being a situation (such as a game or relationship) in which a gain for one side entails a corresponding loss for the other side. While the definition…
Most everyone is probably familiar with the proverb about the loss of a kingdom due to lack of a horseshoe nail:“For want of a nail the shoe was lost. For want of a shoe the horse was lost. For want of a horse the rider was lost. For want of a rider the battle was lost. For want of a battle the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.” We…
For anyone following eDiscovery news through blog sites, newsletters or any of a variety of sources, articles announcing yet another sanction or penalty seem to be an almost daily occurrence. And yet, why is this happening? Sedona Conference has continually provided updated white papers advising on how best to implement legal holds and other methods that supposedly would help ensure more compliance, not the opposite; and attorneys are better-schooled (supposedly, again) in both processes and…
I have advocated for some time that a corporation or law firm is well served by having a position for eDiscovery Program Manager, responsible for managing the support functions related to litigation, regulatory matters or audits. This position is an enhancement of the Legal Hold Administrator position often found in companies, if they have any such organizational structure at all. I would like to emphasize and explain the need for “Program” as part of that…
Legal Holds Gone Wrong Will Cause Sanctions With thanks to Logikcull for their recent post on important eDiscovery cases of 2018 which I reference here, legal holds are in the spotlight…again. It seems that many companies, or perhaps their legal counsel, when confronted with eDiscovery requests tend to “push the envelop” a bit too far too often in production of relevant documents. In the Franklin v Howard Brown Health Center case referenced by Logikcull, plaintiff…
Legal Hold blogs exist for basically two reasons: to share information; and to promote a product and/or service; this blog is intended to do just that, hopefully in a helpful and successful manner. I recently noticed a comment in one of the many blogs I read that actually spoke to truth in a simple way; it was a Legal Hold software blog that gave pretty much the standard pitch about why its product was a…
