Conrad J. Jacoby addresses how critical technology issues related to document authenticity and document-associated metadata have left fewer lawyers willing to accept e-mail messages and other electronic documents in print format. He argues that litigants choosing to produce electronically stored information in hardcopy format should be prepared to provide more complete electronic copies of their production, even when it isn’t initially requested by opposing counsel.
Conrad J. Jacoby examines the recent case of Southern New England Telephone Company (“SNET”) v. Global NAPS, Inc. as an example of how stonewalling and committing perjury, especially with respect to electronic discovery matters that can be independently validated, remains a poor litigation strategy.
Conrad J. Jacoby focuses on two recent cases that emphasize the credibility problems counsel can face in the context of e-discovery – and suggest that outside assistance may be the only way for some counsel to demonstrate that these materials are being managed in a competent and trustworthy way.
According to Conrad J. Jacoby e-mail conversion is done without a second thought in many e-discovery projects, and the results are often satisfactory to both producing and requesting parties. However, each major e-mail archive architecture uses a fundamentally different method for storing information about e-mail messages, and sometimes some collateral damage will occur.
Conrad J. Jacoby highlights five “rules of thumb” about e-discovery that are commonly held in the community, and draws clear and exact distinctions between the myths and the reality behind the advice.

Connie Crosby suggests that publishers implement RSS feeds for new product announcements to help stem the tide of current awareness updates that often end up in the circular file.
Conrad J. Jacoby discusses the important role of the project manager, and how critical oversight allows this individual to anticipate and identify potential problems quickly so that they can be resolved without derailing the case.
