How are you preserving emojis for ediscovery? Hold on just a minute. Do people really use emojis in a business setting? You bet, though not everyone is on board.

If not, you might be spoliating discoverable information—and the burden is on you to preserve that ESI, regardless of whether your opponent has specifically requested it.…
In every complex venture, there’s an unsung hero who’s standing outside the limelight but keeping all the parts moving smoothly. We’re talking about the ediscovery manager who ensures that every case goes off without a hitch. The office administrator who keeps the office stocked and the printers running on a shoestring budget.
