Electronic Discovery Law
K&L Gates' E-Discovery Case Database Has Fresh New Look, More Features, and Now Over 900 Cases
We are pleased to announce that we have enhanced our searchable e-discovery case database and have added a number of new attributes – several of which correspond with the 2006 e-discovery amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. For example, you can now select the attribute “FRCP 37(e) Safe Harbor,” click “Search,” and view a list of cases that have cited or discussed the new “Safe Harbor” rule. Other new attributes that we have added include:
- FRCP 26(b)(2)(B) “Not Reasonably Accessible”
- FCRP 34(b) Procedure or Format
- FRCP 26(b)(2)(C) Limitations
- FRCP 26(b)(5)(B) or Proposed FRE 502
- Early Conference or Discovery Plan
- Local Court Rule, Form or Guideline
- Motion for Preservation Order
What’s more, the database now contains over 900 e-discovery cases from state and federal jurisdictions, with new cases being added every week. Now more than ever, our database is an excellent source of information on developing e-discovery case law around the country.
The database is still searchable by keyword, or by any combination of 28 different case attributes. Each search will produce a list of relevant cases, including a brief description of the nature and disposition of each case, the electronic evidence involved and a link to a more detailed case summary if available.
Or, select the attributes “Motion for Sanctions” and “Lack of Cooperation or Inaccurate Representations,” and click “Search” to see a list of decisions involving parties who displayed bad faith or made uniformed or misleading statements to the court or their opponent about e-discovery issues.
Curious about e-discovery developments in the last year? Visit the database and enter "2007" in the keyword search box to see an overview of the 234-plus cases involving electronic discovery that we tracked last year.
