Email Discovery - How To Preserve, Collect, & Review

on Mon, Jun 08, 2020 By | Jeremy Greer | 0 Comments | Best Practices
Email is one of the most commonly collected forms of electronically stored information in legal matters. When a person or company is subpoenaed, the requesting party will most likely ask for all or a subset of the email box of each potentially relevant custodian. The search, interview, and legal hold process may be time-consuming, but just know that a good amount of the relevant data you are looking for more often than not is in email format. Both the producing party and the custodians themselves can use export functionality within their email application of choice to collect and deliver the email files in question. This pre-existing functionality should make it easier for lawyers to instruct custodians on proper preservation and collection practices.

Email Threading in eDiscovery: The Longest Thread Policy

on Mon, Dec 16, 2019 By | Jeremy Greer | 0 Comments | Best Practices
What Are Email Threads? Email threads represent a group of emails all originating from the same email. These email thread groupings are convenient constructs for which eDiscovery tools and reviewers can logically define a conversation. For the purpose of understanding email threads, think of these conversations as branches. Emails will often branch off in many directions as senders cc, bcc or forward the email to different recipients.

How To Sleuth Your Way To An Accurate eDiscovery Data Map

on Mon, Aug 05, 2019 By | Jeremy Greer | 0 Comments | Best Practices
A data map is a structured analysis of the target company's sources of data which could be potentially relevant to a legal investigation. During an eDiscovery project, the identification stage is about gaining a complete understanding of this data map and how it relates to the organizational (org) chart. Some companies will have a data map, an org chart and specific data retention policies already prepared and in place. These practices can vary between companies and even between departments. When litigation becomes imminent, you may be in a rush to send out a legal hold to prevent intentional or unintended destruction of data. Your eDiscovery workflow may follow a specific, defined order, or more commonly your discovery plan may allow you to come back for second and third rounds of data identification. It is a best practice to put together an accurate data map and continue to revisit it, thereby adding and removing data sources as you gain a more thorough understanding of the data and formally define the scope of the investigation.
